Érudit at home

After over two years of upheaval in our lifestyles, do you miss your usual research environment? Or have you adapted well to working in slippers?

One thing is certain, we are more than ever required to work remotely. Because we understand the complexity of this rapid adaptation, Érudit wishes to assist you in your research process, no matter where you are.

Knowledge Is Just a Few Clicks Away

Érudit is both a key dissemination platform for scholarly journals and cultural magazines nation- and worldwide, as well as a state-of-the-art digital infrastructure.

In collaboration with a network of partners in Québec, Canada and abroad, we are working to establish a unique and innovative model to widen access to knowledge and to support bibliodiversity.

Érudit is a Pan-Canadian interuniversity consortium comprised of Université de Montréal, Université Laval, and Université du Québec à Montréal. We are funded by the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et culture, and as of 2014, we are recognized as a major scientific initiative by the Canada Foundation for Innovation.

A Diverse and Rigorously Curated Corpus

The journals disseminated on Érudit reflect the variety of the scholarly and cultural production in the Canadian and global humanities and social sciences.

These journals are thoroughly selected by our scientific committee and meet the criteria defined by the national scientific agencies.

 Dedicated to open knowledge.

Did you know that Érudit also offers unrestricted content?

With over 95% of the content being open access, there is no need to log in to access a wide range of scholarly and peer-reviewed articles in all disciplines. This movement toward open knowledge is supported by the scientific community, including journals and university libraries. To see the list of open access journals, click below.

Access restricted content

If you don’t know how to access restricted content (under a moving wall) from home, we suggest you reach out to your library.

Each library has its own way of accessing content.

It may sound complex, but the easiest way to find out is to talk with your librarian, who can provide you with all the information and access you need. You can find contact information directly on your library’s website. You can also check out our FAQ page, which outlines other ways to access content remotely.

If you are not a member of a library that subscribes to Érudit, some journals also offer individual access. To find out more about these individual subscriptions, please contact the journal you are interested in directly (psst! you will find all the relevant information in the “About” section of your journal in the platform).

Whether or not you are a member of a subscribing library, we have created a helpful flowchart to help you access our collection.

To explore the access options that apply to your user status, we encourage you to follow this step-by-step process.

Still confused? Simply fill out our access options form, which will help us better guide you in your search.

What if I’m looking for a specific topic?

To increase the efficiency of your searches (and their precision!), you can use the advanced search tool.

The advanced search allows you to compose much more complex queries than in the simple search box, thanks to the different filters and search operators. You can also choose to search through the list of journals sorted according to about thirty disciplines, or even directly within a journal!

Finally, you can search our platform through your library’s search tool (e.g. the SOFIA catalog in Quebec), which will simultaneously allow you to access the content by logging in.

To find out more about the search options, we invite you to consult our Search Guide on Érudit.
