CARL and SPARC launch Canadian version of researcher-focused web resource -

The Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) and the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) have announced the launch of Create Change Canada, a Canadian version of the researcher-focused web resource on scholarly communication. The original Create Change website was developed by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and SPARC with support from the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL).

The Create Change website focuses on the fact that the ways faculty share and use academic research results are changing rapidly and irreversibly. The site outlines how faster and wider sharing of journal articles, research data, simulations, syntheses, analyses, and other findings fuels the advance of knowledge. It offers practical ways faculty can look out for their own interests as researchers. Create Change Canada introduces the Canadian voice on policy issues and highlights Canadian researcher experiences in English and in French.

The website includes sections on digital scholarship and new modes of communication, examples of change in diverse fields, and ways to stay informed of new developments. It offers tailored guidance for researchers who play many roles in their professional lives-as researcher, author, reviewer, editor, editorial board member, society member, faculty member, or teacher. In addition, the site features selected news items, an ongoing series of interviews with scholars from different disciplines, and scores of links to other websites and resources.
