Science and Research committee  We also have to remember that scholarly journals in French are found primarily in the humanities and social sciences. Myself, I am a health researcher, and as in the case of my colleagues in the natural sciences and engineering, there are virtually no journals in French in our di

Science and Research committee  The decline affects health sciences, natural sciences and engineering. In fact, it affects health sciences the most, because there is virtually nothing in that field. In natural sciences and engineering, there are still a few bilingual journals, but that is all. It is really in t

Science and Research committee  Thank you very much. That is kind of you. It was noted earlier, and I said it at the start of my presentation: funding for scholarly journals enables them to exist, to flourish and to engage in promotion; that is one thing. However, we also have to think about doing more to supp

Science and Research committee  I am going to begin answering the question and then let Ms. Pelletier finish. The purpose of the service to assist research in French, or SARF, is to offer services to the research community in minority language environments. For example, a researcher at an anglophone institutio

Science and Research committee  Mobilizing the international francophonie must absolutely be part of the strategy, yes. That is a way of creating a much larger community that has French as a shared language. In fact, we are very skilled when it comes to collaborating. As Ms. Lamoureux said, there will very pro

Science and Research committee  We do not have figures to give you on that point, unfortunately. However, I really do want to stress the fact that the convergence toward English is happening in a lot of countries and the difficulties in publishing in a language other than English do not just exist in Canada. T

Science and Research committee  The government could certainly do a better job of supporting the journals financially, ensuring that they publish several issues, promoting them, and thus creating a dynamic community in French. I think that is part of the duty of the government of Canada.

Jean-Pierre Perreault

Science and Research committee  I would say that my colleague's answer really points to an important element of the solution. There has to be a real commitment throughout the educational program.

Science and Research committee  Earlier, I gave an example of the kind of support the service to assist research in French will offer. That service is a kind of single window that the entire community, and researchers who want to do research in French, will be able to use. For Acfas, this service is an absolut

Science and Research committee  The answer to that question is simple: yes, absolutely. All societies are asking themselves the same question. I think the transformation that is going to take place in the next few years in terms of methods of dissemination may be going to create new opportunities for reviving
