Canadian Journal of the Humanities and Social Sciences

Douglas College and its Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences are pleased to announce the launch of an online journal.

Called the Canadian Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences, this journal represents a new form of academic publication and discourse. We seek articles that promote multidisciplinary debate about issues across the humanities and social sciences. And, we offer the opportunity for publicly visible, online peer review.

Part of the mandate of the CJHSS is to remove as much editorial censorship as possible. To this end, the journal offers authors the opportunity to publish articles online with only minimal editorial interference. In combination with our public and online article review process, this approach creates an environment for free, open academic debate without the ordinary editorial and economic restrictions of traditional hard-copy journals.

Please visit the journal at and peruse at your leisure. We aim to publish our first edition in mid to late summer of this year. At the present time we are accepting articles for publication. All instructions are on the website. Or, click here for a larger version of the Call for Papers poster.

Please follow the Canadian Journal of the Humanities and Social Sciences on Twitter @cjhssorg.

  1. Further, to the editorial policy and types of articles we are interested in:

    1. The journal accepts anything an author wants to write for online review. We want to hear what is on your mind. It does not have to conform to ordinary journal style. In fact, that is the point. We provide an outlet that is not available in the standard academic journal.

    2. The writing should be academic, not colloquial.

    3. Because our editorial policy is open, we are a great place to talk about controversial issues.

    4. Because we are a broad journal covering many disciplines, the journal is a perfect place to talk about multidisciplinary issues.

    5. We want to encourage open debate.
