Coalition Publica is launching a call for applications for scholarly journals wishing to be disseminated on the Érudit platform (erudit.org) as of January 2023.

Érudit’s Scientific Committee will examine the applications and will approve, reject or outline conditions for the inclusion of the journal on the erudit.org platform.
Choose a type of digital production. Érudit will provide applicant journals with a proposal with two options:
Minimal XML (metadata tagging in XML, dissemination of articles in PDF format)
Full XML (metadata and full text markup in XML, dissemination of articles in PDF and HTML; other formats also available (e.g. ePub))
Sign contracts between the journal and Érudit. Contracts must be returned to Érudit before September 1, 2022, otherwise the journal cannot be integrated in 2023.
We invite you to familiarize yourself with Coalition Publica’s services for journals.
