New Models of Knowledge Dissemination and Open Access in Canada

Érudit and the Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN) invited publishers of scholarly journals and directors of Canadian university libraries to meet in Montréal on November 17, 2015 to discuss new open access-inspired paradigms for disseminating knowledge. Over 110 participants from all across Canada attended.

The New Models of Knowledge Dissemination and Open Access in Canada seminar was part of the partnership between Érudit and the CRKN in support of scholarly journals and open dissemination. This innovative, ambitious partnership involves 53 Canadian university libraries and 107 Canadian scholarly journals transitioning from a subscription to a partnership model.

We are pleased to present you with a summary of the presentations that were given on that day.
