CRKN and Érudit announce the renewal of their Partnership for Open Access

The Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN) and Érudit are pleased to announce the renewal of their Partnership for Open Access for an additional two-year period. This extension will serve as a transition period to a new long-term partnership agreement planned for 2025 and will allow our organizations to build towards a ground-breaking reimagining of the Canadian open access landscape.

The Partnership for Open Access (POA) is a collective model for providing ongoing financial support to 223 Canadian scholarly journals disseminated on the platform. As part of the movement to transform scholarly publishing, the POA brings together libraries and journals to build a sustainable open access environment in Canada.

The two-year extension of the CRKN-Érudit Partnership for Open Access took effect on January 1, 2023 and includes 54 participating CRKN member institutions.
