SSHRC recently changed the requirements for applying to its Aid to Scholarly Journals program, one that the Canadian Journal of Political Science/Revue canadienne de science politique has regularly relied on for funding. These changes require that journals move to an open access platform by 2021 to receive grant monies. In light of these changes, the CPSA established a committee to investigate open access and the implications of its adoption for the CJPS/RCSP, and ultimately to make a recommendation to the Boards of the CPSA and SQSP on how to proceed. This panel provides an opportunity for the committee to present the findings of its preliminary report and to obtain feedback from the Association’s members.
