Title: PubMed Central Canada: Beyond an Open Access Repository?
Author: Nariani, Rajiv
Abstract: PubMed Central Canada (PMC Canada) represents a partnership between the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the National Research Council's
Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (NRC-CISTI), and the National
Library of Medicine of the US. The present study was done to gauge faculty awareness
about the CIHR Policy on Access to Research and about their familiarity with PubMed
Central Canada, the federal open access repository. Researchers were asked to rank
search and browse features that would be helpful while using PMC Canada. The study
recommends academic librarians to play an active role in promoting open access
repositories and informing faculty members about policies on access to
research as stipulated by grant funding agencies.
