Contests 2018-2019

The Quebec Population Health Research Network (RRSPQ) is pleased to announce its support for 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 and the activities of its strategic groupings.

This support can cover :

  • Edition and translation costs
  • Open access fees. Please, note that articles that are already published cannot be submitted in this competition, unless the journal regulations allows a modification of the publication so as to explicitly acknowledge the financial support of the Network.
  • Costs of scientific productions making use of new communication media (web, CD-Rom, etc.)

Eligible projects are those that fall within the mission of RRSPQ and that achieve the objectives of the latter (see

This support cannot be used to pay an author or a research assistant (for instance to perform a systemtaic review)
