Open Access Requirements

Many grants now require the products of research to be shared openly through open access publishing. For an example, see the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications. SFU Library can support you in making your work open access by helping you to identify high-qualify open access journals and negotiate your rights with publishers so that you can share your work in Summit, SFU’s institutional repository.

SFU has an Open Access Policy requiring that all SFU researchers deposit their work with the Library to be included in Summit. The Library will make the articles available to the public, taking into consideration requirements for access delay.
