The Canadian Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications officially took effect one year ago. Any researchers awarded grants by CIHR, NSERC or SSHRC since May 1, 2015 must ensure that peer-reviewed articles resulting from these grants are publicly accessible within 12 months of publication. As researchers approach the point of publishing research stemming from these funded grants, libraries and research administrators across the country are developing strategies and supports to make compliance as seamless as possible within their institutions. This session will offer an overview of such initiatives, present examples of innovative efforts within these academic departments, and provide suggestions for how libraries and research administrators can begin working together to support their researchers.
