    At a time when scholarly dissemination is facing major challenges, Érudit is carrying out an important study on Canadian scholarly journals in collaboration with several organizations involved in academic publishing. The Canadian scholarly journal community, made up of 350 or so journals, is going through a period of unprecedented change since the advent of Open Access. The most fundamental transformation at stake, relates, no doubt, to the issue of open access to scholarly publications, as it calls into question the traditional subscription-based model. In order for scholarly journals to evolve and thrive, new business models must, thus, be considered. However, before setting up such models, it is essential to determine the profile of scholarly journals in Canada, including the financial impact of digital dissemination and Open Access. Érudit, in collaboration with the Canadian Association of Learned Journals, the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences, Canadian Science Publishing, and a financial support from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, have hired a team of independent consultants to undertake a study of the financial situation of scholarly journals in both official languages in Canada. As a first step, managers of Canadian scholarly journals are invited to participate, until July 31, 2015, in the online survey (available at; then, during the summer, forty in-depth interviews will be conducted with journals managers. The report of the study will be made available in autumn 2015. The results will provide an accurate and up-to-date economic assessment for all Canadian research stakeholders, in order to endorse the search for new economic models which promote a transition to open access to scholarly journals.

    The Canadian Association of Leaned Journals (CALJ) welcomes the Tri-Council's Open Access policy. It affirms the societal benefit of public access to research across the entire spectrum of scholarship in science, social science, and the humanities. Scholars and researchers believe that public access to their self-directed inquiry, reported in a free and open manner without oversight and influence, is fundamental to the dynamic, democratic, pluralistic and forward-looking society that is Canada. At the same time, in setting a maximum embargo of 12 months across all disciplines, the Tri-Council policy creates a demand for compensatory policies and business models that will ensure continuing financial support for the processes surrounding the publication of research.
