Distribution and visibility

Synergies is the only Canada-wide distribution platform for scholarly publications and actively contributes to the dissemination of university research by offering privileged access to several types of documents, including journals, books, proceedings, theses, and other research data.

Highest academic and editorial standards

Synergies has been developed in close collaboration with the academic milieu to meet the specific needs of the humanities and social sciences academic community, providing researchers with a superior framework recognized by peers. Publications meet the eligibility criteria of Synergies’ five regional partner editorial boards.
