University of Ottawa among North American leaders in open access

Kudos to the University of Ottawa for this welcome announcement about OA leadership, including a commitment to make University of Ottawa research openly accessible, joining the Compact for Open Access Publishing Equity, providing funding for authors to wish to publish in open access journals that charge article processing fees, and a research grant to further study open access.

This post is part of the Canadian leadership in the open access movement series. Canadian open access advocate Michael Geist is at the University of Ottawa.
