CRKN agreements open up publishing opportunities for researchers


New partnerships and agreements involving the Canadian Research Knowledge Network have created new publishing opportunities for scholars at its member institutions. CRKN recently announced a transformative open access publishing agreement with Canadian Science Publishing. The agreement will offer scholars unlimited open access publishing in five CSP journals and discounted article processing charges in additional CSP journals. The network also signed a two-year read-and-publish agreement with Wiley that removes article processing charges for CRKN member institution scholars publishing in Wiley hybrid journals. The agreement is expected to result in the publication of over 4,000 open access articles. In a note to scholars at the University of Manitoba, UM Libraries noted that these agreements will result in cost savings for researchers and more accessible, discoverable research. CRKN also recently added 34 student publications from the University of Regina to its Canadiana collection.
