What began as a university project in 1998 has become the largest French-language research platform in North America. Through its research platform, Érudit offers a centralized access to the majority of francophone publications in the social sciences and humanities from North America, including scholarly and cultural journals, books, conference proceedings, theses and dissertations, as well as various research documents and data. In all, more than 200,000 documents are made available from a single point of access.
Érudit is the most important platform for north american french-language research outputs in SSH. Through a policy combining open and restricted access, almost 95% of Érudit collections are freely available for all.
