University of Ottawa

This morning, the University of Ottawa announced a comprehensive Open Access program, including an authors fund, a research to support research on OA, a fund to support the creation of digital materials, and support for the U of O Press to produce a collection of OA monographs. The University of Ottawa has also joined the Compact for Open-Access Publishing Equity (COPE).

The announcement can be found here, with links leading to the components of the OA program.

Congratulations to everyone at the University of Ottawa (especially Tony Horava for sending me the news right away) for putting together a broad program in a very coherent manner.
