The Quebec Population Health Research Network (QPHRN) is pleased to announce its support for the scientific publications program. The purpose of this program is to financially support network members for the publication of scientific work (books, articles, ...) dealing with a topic related to health populations research. Preference will be given to publications tying in with the activities of one or more of the 6 QPHRN axes.

This support can cover :

  • Editing and translation costs;
  • Open access fees. Please note that articles that are already published cannot be submitted for this competition, unless the journal regulations allow a post-publication modification of the manuscript so as to explicitly acknowledge the financial support of the Network;
  • Other publication expenses (e.g. print costs for a book)

This financial support cannot be used to pay an author or a research assistant (for instance to perform a systematic review or data analysis).

Eligibility

  • “Regular researcher” or “student” members of the QPHRN are eligible for this competition.
  • The applicant must be the first author of the published work.
  • Applicants must be able to submit their publication to the journal or publishing house mentioned in their submission on December 15th, 2020 at the latest. For larger works (such as books), the deadline for submitting the manuscript to the publishing house may be extended on the basis of a written and detailed request, subject to approval by the Network.
  • For works such as books, candidates must already have an estimate from the publishing house (estimate of total costs).
  • Priority will be given to publications that address the integration of knowledge into public policy and / or practice. Publication of the same work cannot be funded more than once by the QPHRN.
  • A same author can apply and/or appear as the first author or coauthor in several applications to the current "Support for publications" competition. Yet, for equity reasons, a same author cannot be funded more than once per year in this competition. If any author appears in multiple applications, priority may be given to the application that gets the highest evaluation score.
  • Regular members can submit more than one application to all QPHRN funding opportunities but can only be awarded once in each category. 
  • A same QPHRN student member can apply to several annual competitions launched by the QPHRN but a Master’s student cannot be awarded more than $5,000 per year, and a Ph. D. or postdoctoral student $10,000 per year.

Applications must be submitted as one single attachment (Microsoft Word or PDF file) via electronic mail – by mentioning “Competition – scientific publications” as the subject – no later than the submission’s deadline date at the following address: rrspq.coordination@gmail.com

Evaluation Criteria

Applications will be evaluated by a peer review committee according to the following criteria:

  • Current state of publication progress – priority will be given to the most advanced projects
  • Link to the mission, objectives and strategic priorities of the QPHRN and its Axes. Priority will be given to publications that address the integration of knowledge into practice and/or public policies aimed at improving the health of populations. 
  • Preference will be given to works that will be the result of interdisciplinary, interinstitutional or intersectoral collaborations between several authors.
  • Quality, originality, innovative nature, and potential impact of the publication
  • For books: quality of dissemination plan (launching event, plan for dissemination, ...)
  • Quality of journal or publisher - Please, beware of predatory journals! (See https://predatoryjournals.com/journals/)

Recipients’ Commitments

  • Recipients must submit their publication to the journal or publishing house mentioned in their submission on December 15th, 2020 at the latest. For larger works (such as books), the deadline for submitting the manuscript to the publishing house may be extended on the basis of a written and detailed request, subject to approval by the Network. Otherwise, the QPHRN will not be required to reimburse publication costs.
  • Recipients must inform the QPHRN in the event of refusal of publication by the journal mentioned in their submission. The Network will no longer bear the cost of publication in another journal, unless the recipients resubmit their manuscript in a subsequent competition and they are selected once more.
  • The costs of open access, editing and/or translation must be advanced by the recipients. They will need to submit proof of payment for a refund, up to $ 3,000.
  • The reimbursement request must be submitted within one month of payment (or the last payment in the event of multiple invoices).
  • Funded authors must explicitly mention the QPHRN’s financial contribution in the publication. The following acknowledgment is suggested: “The authors thank the Quebec Population Health Research Network (QPHRN) for its contribution to the financing of this publication”.
  • A copy of the publication must be sent to the QPHRN in order to serve as a scientific report.
  • The recipients will agree to publish the title and a summary of their publication (in French and English) on the QPHRN website, as soon as their selection is announced.
