Journal of Canadian Studies
Published Triannually | E-ISSN 1911-0251 | ISSN 0021-9495
The Journal of Canadian Studies/Revue d'études canadiennes was the first Canadian Studies journal in the country. The journal has a long history of being deeply committed to interdisciplinary perspectives, bilingual presentation of research, and the scholarly study of Canada. The mandate of the JCS/REC is twofold: it aims to publish the best scholarship about Canadian history, culture and society, whether the researcher is junior or senior, living in Canada or abroad; and second, to serve as a vehicle for disseminating solid, original research about Canada. JCS continues to champion and advance the emergence and legitimacy of interdisciplinary research in Canada.
