Achieving a Sustainable Canadian Publishing Model through Library-Publisher Partnership

March 07, 2016 11:08 AM | Anonymous

A recent white paper written on behalf of the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL), Canadian Universities and Sustainable Publishing, provides an overview of scholarly communication in Canada from the perspective of research libraries. The Canadian Association of Learned Journals (CALJ), the national organization who represents Canadian journals and their publishers, was sent a copy of this report only after it was finalized.

Michel Duquet, President of CALJ, feels that the libraries should talk to the experts in journal publishing rather than tackling this situation on their own. According to Duquet, “Canadian journals are already being produced at a low cost. We have a tradition of running fiscally responsible journals, and we follow stringent editorial practices, providing a trusted framework and vehicle for research that is of importance to Canadians. We have a lot of experience in running high-quality journals on a small budget.”
