Overview of the Canadian HSS Commons


Welcome to the Canadian Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) Commons!

Thanks for visiting! The Canadian HSS Commons is an in-development, national-scale, bilingual (French and English) network for Canadian HSS researchers and stakeholders to share, access, re-purpose, and develop scholarly projects, publications, educational resources, data, and tools.

The Canadian HSS Commons is designed with both humanities and social sciences research communities in mind. It is also uniquely positioned to respond to the legal, academic, and institutional contexts most relevant to Canadian HSS researchers.

This project is an initiative of the INKE Partnership. We’re grateful to our many partners, including Compute Canada, CANARIE, UVic Systems, the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences, and the US-based Humanities Commons, with additional support from the Canadian Research Knowledge Network, the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI), Edith Cowan University, Érudit, Iter, the Public Knowledge Project, and UVic Libraries.
