Accessibility Statement

Discover the accessibility statement for the platform

The Érudit Consortium is committed to making its platform accessible to all, including people with disabilities, notably those identified in the WCAG 2.1. We recognize the importance of accessibility and are taking measures to ensure that the platform conforms to the AA-level criteria established in the Guidelines for Web accessibility put forth by the WCAG 2.1.

During the winter of 2023, as part of its commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), the team at Érudit established a working group tasked with evaluating the current accessibility level of the platform and proposing improvements. In the first phase, this group will work to draw up a list of accessibility issues on our platform. During the second phase, and as part of a process of continuous improvement, we will be working to solve the most important issues on that list as well as those identified by our community, including users, researchers, library staff and journal editorial teams.

This page contains a statement of accessibility which will evolve as progress is made. 


Content Produced by Érudit

The following components of the platform are under our direct control, and can be made fully compliant with the AA-level criteria of the accessibility guidelines established in the WCAG 2.1:

    • Platform navigation

Some content hosted on the platform, such as PDF documents, images and video files provided by third parties, might not conform to the accessibility standard. While we are working with our content-producing partners, such as journal editorial teams and university presses, to improve accessibility, we cannot guarantee that this content will be in compliance with the guidelines.
