Humanities and Social Sciences Federation of Canada has issued
a Call for Proposals for a research study on the costs of electronic
publishing related to e-publishing by Canadian researchers in
the humanities and social sciences. This is in follow up to an
initial project that resulted in the creation of a Web site linking
research sites for the use of researchers in a survey of the
attitudes of social scientists and humanists to electronic publishing
and in case studies of electronic journals. Further details of
what is sought in the follow up study are available from the
Office of Research. $7,000 has been budgeted for the costs involved.
The deadline for submission is April 15, 2000.

has announced the commencement of its third reallocations exercise.
This exercise will result in the reassignment of up to 10 per
cent of NSERCs Research Grants budget (current budget is
approximately $240 million) to the specific needs and initiatives
that it considers being of the highest priority. The resulting
changes to the GSCs budgets will then be implemented over
a period of four fiscal years (2003-2006). As a first stage in
the process, NSERC is now soliciting nominations of suitable
individuals who are willing to serve on steering committees.
Individuals, groups or organizations may make one or more nominations
for one or more steering committees. Further detail is available
at NSERCs website www.nserc.ca. The deadline for
receipt of nominations is May 15.
