Applicants must be the editor-in-chief of the journal or, in the case of an editorial collective, one of the editors. The applicant must be a faculty member of an eligible Canadian postsecondary institution.

AMOUNT: Up to $30,000 per year over three years. The value of the grant will be calculated on the basis of a fixed rate for each approved, peer-reviewed scholarly article to be published during each year of the grant period. There are two per-article rates:
