Evaluation of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council’s (SSHRC) Aid to Scholarly Journals (ASJ) funding opportunity | Nov 25, 2020 12:30-1:30 ET

An evaluation of the ASJ funding opportunity is currently being conducted as part of SSHRC’s standard evaluation of ongoing programming. Since the previous evaluation of the ASJ in 1985, major changes have taken place both within the program and in scholarly communication more generally. The findings from the evaluation will help to inform decisions regarding the future of the ASJ in this changing environment. Please join us in this webinar to learn more about the progress and preliminary findings from the evaluation.   

Dina Guth works as a Senior Program Officer at the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).  As part of the Research Grants Portfolio, she engages in the delivery of SSHRC’s flagship Insight Grants and Insight Development Grants and is the Senior Program Officer responsible for the Aid to Scholarly Journals and Awards to Scholarly Publications programs. She holds a PhD in Classical Studies from the University of Michigan and spent several productive years as an instructor and researcher at the University of Manitoba and the University of Winnipeg prior to joining SSHRC.
