"Presentation at the workshop "Towards a Tri-Agency Policy on Open Access to Research Publications" on March 22, 2013 in Ottawa, Canada. The Tri-Agency are the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and the Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR) and they are in the process of formulating a harmonized policy on open access to research publications resulting from their funding.
