We are pleased to share the exciting news that Coalition Publica, a partnership of SFU-based PKP and Université de Montréal-based Erudit, has been awarded $10 million dollars over the next 6 years by the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s Major Science Initiative (MSI) fund. This is a renewal of our 2017-2022 CFI-MSI award and will help to ensure the continuation of our work.

Coalition Publica is developing open-source, non-commercial, national infrastructure to support scholarly research, publishing, and dissemination. Being part of the MSI fund represents the Canadian government’s support for our work as critical research infrastructure of national and international importance, and will allow us to strengthen our software and services. The award will ensure the growing power of an open, multilingual, diverse, non-commercial scholarly publishing ecosystem in Canada and around the world.

Open access and open science are at the heart of Coalition Publica, which is committed to sustaining scholarly journals in a rapidly changing environment” (from the press release).
