Should the CJPS become an open access journal?
Open access (OA) is rapidly gaining support in the scientific community. As of 2021, the Canadian Journal of Political Science (CJPS) will no longer be eligible for SSHRC’s Aid to Scholarly Journal grant unless its scholarly content is minimally accessible for free within 12 months of publication. The CJPS, the Canadian Political Science Association (CPSA) and the Société québécoise de science politique (SQSP) are vulnerable because transitioning to OA would reduce revenues from the journal’s subscription fees and royalties, which represent a significant proportion of their income. A CPSA-SQSP committee has prepared a preliminary report making recommendations on the path ahead for the CJPS in this changing context.

The preliminary report is available HERE

The committee will present its report and receive feedback from the Association’s members at this roundtable.

La RCSP devrait-elle adopter le libre-accès?
Le phénomène du libre accès (LA) gagne en importance dans le domaine des publications savantes. Pour être admissible au programme de soutien aux revues savantes du CRSH, la Revue canadienne de science politique devra à partir de 2021 rendre accessible gratuitement son contenu scientifique après un délai de 12 mois. L’impact du virage vers le LA sur la Revue reste incertain, mais son modèle d’affaires, qui repose sur les abonnements et les redevances est vulnérable. Un déclin des revenus en provenance de la Revue affectera également l’Association canadienne de science politique et la Société québécoise de science politique, qui financent une partie de leurs activités grâce à ceux-ci. Un comité mixte de l’ACSP et de la SQSP a préparé un rapport préliminaire afin de faire un état de la situation et proposer des pistes de réponses.

Le rapport est disponible ICI

Le comité présentera son rapport et sollicitera par la même occasion les commentaires des membres de l’ACSP lors de la table-ronde.
