Érudit: une plateforme numérique indispensable | Le Devoir
Newspaper article highlighting érudit, a Québec-based primarily french scholarly journal platform. 95% of content is open access, with some journals fully OA on publication and others with rolling walls. The reach of érudit is worldwide according to its statistics, increasing impact for authors of journals that participate. Thanks to a major grant érudit now serves as a "big data" platform for researchers. Currently érudit returns some money to participating journals, but this is not sufficient, grant funding is necessary as well. In order for these journals to survive and thrive into the future, not to have to transfer to commercial publishers and to enjoy the benefits of open access, what is needed is secure funding for the operations of the journals.
