New addition to PubMed Central International

Todd Vandenbark

In January, PubMed Central Canada was added to PMC International. As explained in the original bulletin:

PMC Canada is the result of a three-way collaborative effort by the National Library of Medicine®, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), and the National Research Council’s Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (NRC-CISTI). Similar to United Kingdom PubMed Central, PMC Canada will include most of the health and life sciences literature available through the United States PMC. PMC Canada will also include research resulting from funding through the CIHR.

And as of April 28, 2010, they have added a manuscript submission system which supports the Canadian Institutes of Health Research system’s “Policy on Access to Research Outputs, which requires CIHR grant recipients to make their peer-reviewed publications freely accessible online within six months of publication.” PubMed Central Canada is available in both English and French.
