Institutional Repositories

In March 2015, the Tri-Council Agencies of Canada released the “Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications” requiring that grant-funded researchers provide public access to their published papers. Details can be found on the Tri-Agency Open Access page.

The following list provides access to the public repositories of Science Atlantic member institutions, where grant recipients archive final, peer-reviewed, full-text manuscripts in digital format.
