At Canadian Science Publishing, we publish high quality, trustworthy scholarly research. It is our view that open science and open access are essential to mobilizing reliable scientific knowledge. We believe that everyone should have access to trusted scientific knowledge to achieve a sustainable future.
On a mission
Our mission is to enhance the reach, rigour, and relevance of science so that people can find, trust, and use it. This mission permeates all aspects of our operations, particularly when it comes to open science. We are committed to removing barriers and ensuring that research is discoverable so that readers can find and immediately access the information we publish.
Open access partnerships (also called transformative agreements) are scholarly publishing contracts between publishers and academic institutions that combine access and publication costs to accelerate the shift toward more open and collaborative scientific research.
