cOAlition S is excited to welcome on board the Québec Research Funds (QRF) as the latest organisation – and first North American public funder – to join the international consortium of research funding and performing organisations committed to delivering full and immediate Open Access to scientific publications. Representing almost a quarter of Canada’s scientific community, the Québec Research Funds support excellence in research and the training of researchers in the fields of natural sciences, mathematical sciences, engineering, health, social sciences, humanities, arts and literature in order to stimulate the development of knowledge and innovation. In 2019-2020 the QRF spent 253 million dollars in support of research by providing grants, scholarships and awards.
