When deciding where to publish your research, there are several things to keep in mind, including:

  • compliance with the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy, in effect May 1, 2015 (if you received funding from CIHR, NSERC, or SSHRC)
  • looking into open access journals
  • taking advantage of potential discounts on article processing charges (APCs) that the libraries have negotiated 
  • retaining author rights so that you can freely distribute and reproduce your work
