Aid to Scholarly Journals grants are expected to respond to the objectives of the Insight program. They support Canadian scholarly dissemination by offering a contribution to enable journals to explore innovative activities as well as to help them to defray the costs associated with publishing scholarly articles, digital publishing and journal distribution on Canadian not-for-profit platforms.

Aid to Scholarly Journals grants are meant to:

  • * increase dissemination, discoverability and readership of original research results in the social sciences and humanities through Canadian scholarly journals;
  • * leverage significant federal investments in digital scholarly publishing infrastructure;
  • * assist journals as they seek to take advantage of developments in digital technologies and innovative practices; and
  • * encourage the transition to open access models of publishing.
