New web resource for Canadian researchers

Share this on social media:

CARL (the Canadian Association of Research Libraries) and SPARC (Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) have launched Create Change Canada, a Canadian version of the researcher-focused Web resource on scholarly communication. The original Create Change web site was developed by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and SPARC with support from the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL).

The Create Change Web site focuses on how faster and wider sharing of information fuels the advance of knowledge. Create Change Canada introduces the Canadian voice on policy issues and highlights Canadian researcher experiences in English and in French.

‘Create Change Canada is a timely resource for Canadian researchers,’ stated Carolynne Presser, chair of the CARL Scholarly Communication Committee. ‘It will keep authors informed of emerging international trends and help them enjoy the greatest impact and visibility for their publications.’

SPARC executive director Heather Joseph commented: ‘The introduction of national public access policies to publicly funded research is another reason why researchers are thinking carefully about their rights and opportunities for greater exposure. Create Change Canada will provide much-needed resources and support for the research community.’
