Subject: An Important and Urgent Update on the Future of SSHRC Funding of Journals

The CALJ Executive is very concerned with recent proposed SSHRC changes to the journal funding program. We urge our members to carefully review this update. 

In July 2017, SSHRC formed an Advisory Committee to review the Aid to Scholarly Journals (ASJ) funding opportunity. Members of the Canadian Association of Learned Journals (CALJ) Board of Directors (BOD) were invited to participate in an Advisory Committee.

Concerns over SSHRC changes to the Aid to Scholarly Program

After reviewing the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) proposed changes to the Aid to Scholarly Journals (ASJ) program the Board of Directors of CALJ has written to the Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science, who is responsibility of SSHRC. It is felt that if implemented the recommendations will significantly impact the sustainability of many of our most successful journals
