PubMedCentral Canada (PMC) Initiative

Thanks to Kumiko Vezina, and Donna Meighan, Partnership Development Officer, Health Portfolio, NRC:

Over the summer, NRC-CISTI and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) finalized the first step in the partnership for the PubMed Central Canada agreement process, a national digital repository of peer-reviewed health science research. With CIHR funding now in place, CISTI plans to contribute its technological expertise to build & host the infrastructure and manage & develop the e-repository.

Watch for further developments in this emerging example of Canadian leadership in the open access movement.
