The Canadian Tri-Agency open access policy on publications aims to make publicly funded research openly available to other researchers, and to the general public.

Get Real: A workshop on Realist Methodology

Hosted by Dr. Gary Groot (Canada) and Dr. Gill Westhorp (Australia) and held at the University of Saskatchewan campus – read more about it here!
