Should the CJPS become an open access journal?
Open access (OA) is rapidly gaining support in the scientific community. As of 2021, the CJPS will no longer be eligible for SSHRC’s Aid to Scholarly Journal grant unless its scholarly content is minimally accessible for free within 12 months of publition. The CJPS, the CPSA and the SQSP are vulnerable beuse transitioning to OA would reduce revenues from the journal’s subscription fees and royalties, which represent a signifint proportion of their income. A CPSA-SQSP committee has prepared a preliminary report -available HERE making recommendations on the path ahead for the CJPS in this changing context.
The committee will present its report and receive feedback from the Association’s members at a ROUNDTABLE during the CPSA Annual Conference in Vancouver, June 5, 2019, 10:30am to 12:00pm.
