Announcements and Upcoming Events


  • SFU Open Access Policy
    SFU Open Access Policy came into effect in January 2017. For more information click here or visit
    To satisfy the policy requirement in one easy step, SFU researchers can provide an electronic copy of the finalized text of their published journal articles to the SFU Library. The Library will make the articles available to the public, taking into consideration requirements for access delay. Submit the finalized text of articles via the Summit deposit form no later than the date of publication. The Library will manage any embargo periods required by your publisher. Public access to the article will be automatic following the embargo end date. If you have feedback or questions about the policy or would like to arrange a meeting for assistance, please contact
