IEEE Authors and Canada’s Open Access Policy
IEEE’s publication policies enable Canadian research authors to comply with requirements of the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications issued in late February 2015. This policy requires free and open access (OA) to research funded by grants from any of three agencies: the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).
