Notes for Contributors
Asia-Pacific Journal of Canadian Studies invites scholarly submissions that will contribute to the journal's aim of providing a forum for disseminating information and research on Canada in all disciplines. Published twice yearly (June and December), the AJCS is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal devoted to the analysis and discussion of all aspects of Canadian society. The Journal welcomes contributions from established as well as younger scholars, and we seek to publish articles from across the social sciences and humanities, and science and technology. The Journal will also entertain proposals for Special Thematic Issues, jointly vesting the nomination of potential contributors with the Guest Editors. These proposals should clearly explain how the topic or theme fits with the aim of the AJCS. Responsibilities for reviewing manuscripts and making final editorial decisions remain with the journal’s editorial board.
Manuscripts may be in the form of articles (in English or French; approximately 5,000-8,000 words), review essays or commentaries (3,000 words), or book reviews (1,000 words). Articles that are submitted must be original and should not be simultaneously under consideration-either in whole or in part-for publication elsewhere.
Editorial Procedures
All manuscripts accepted for consideration by Asian Journal of Canadian Studies (AJCS) are sent out anonymously to readers for evaluation. To protect anonymity, only the title should appear on the manuscript and all possible identifying information should be excluded from the body of the text. Attach a cover page with the title of the manuscript, and the name, affiliation and address of the author(s). The review process can take up to two months.
