||This paper introduces the CFI-funded project Synergies: The Canadian Information Network for Research in the Social Sciences and Humanities, and two of its regional components. This four-year project is a national distributed platform with a wide range of tools to support the creation, distribution, access and archiving of digital objects such as journal articles. It will enable the distribution and use of social sciences and humanities research, as well as to create a resource and platform for pure and applied research. In short, Synergies will be a research tool and a dissemination tool that will greatly enhance the potential and impact of Social Sciences and Humanities scholarship. The Synergies infrastructure is built on two publishing platforms: Érudit and the Public Knowledge Project (PKP). This paper will present the PKP project within the broader context of scholarly communications. Synergies is also built on regional nodes, with both overlapping and unique services. The Ontario region will be presented as a case study, with particular emphasis on project integration with Scholars Portal, a digital library.
