After ten months of assessing the current landscape, discussing the future options from different perspectives to seek common ground, and several weeks of collaborative writing, the Canadian Scholarly Publishing Working Groupis pleased to present its final report. It presents a model framework for setting Canadian scholarly publishing on a path towards sustainability. Due to the heterogeneity of the landscape, this proposed framework brings together several interrelated initiatives in the areas of monographs, journals, and new scholarly forms.

The Working Group identified key principles to guide future efforts towards sustainable Canadian scholarly publishing:

  • Accountable to the academy
  • Supporting openness
  • Supporting high-quality publishing practices
  • Well-informed authors
  • Rich Canadian publishing opportunities
  • Building on strength
