NRC Research Press becomes Canadian Science Publishing (CSP)

Note that as of September 1, 2010, NRC Research Press will be privatized and will no longer be a government publisher. It will be business as usual and none of our terms and conditions, and agreements/commitments will change. The new publisher name will be Canadian Science Publishing (CSP), but will retain the trade name NRC Research Press to avoid any confusion. All the copyright (journal content and names) was transferred to CSP.
