The research life cycle publishing stage covers:

Open Access or Publishing in Open Access Journals

Open Access (OA) is the practice of providing free and unrestricted online access to research publications and data. Increasingly, granting agencies (e.g., CIHR, NSERC, and SSHRC in the new Tri-Agency Open Access Policy) require researchers to make the results of funded research Open Access.

In addition to publishing in open access journals, deposit of a final, peer-reviewed manuscript in cIRcle, UBC’s institutional repository, within twelve (12) months of publication fulfils the Tri-Agency requirements.
