PubMed Central Canada Opens for Business: Free Online Access to Life Sciences Journals

The PubMed Central Canada project (noted here last July) is now open for business at http://pubmedcentralcanada.ca/ This collaboration — between the NRC’s Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), and the U.S. National Library of Medicine — “aims to provide a freely accessible, Canada-based archive of biomedical and health research findings.”

It also allows CIHR-funded researchers to comply with the Institute’s Policy on Access to Research Outputs, which requires grantees to make their peer-reviewed publications freely accessible online within six months of publication. There’s a login-based manuscript submission system, but since I’m not CIHR funded, I can’t check it out. If you are, and you do, let us know how it works.
