British Journal of Canadian Studies (BJCS) is published twice-yearly by Liverpool University Press on behalf of the British Association for Canadian Studies. Launched over thirty years ago, BJCS is broad-based, multidisciplinary, and international, welcoming contributions from all areas of the arts and humanities and the economic and social sciences.

BJCS is committed to publishing research and scholarship on the analysis of Canadian issues, spanning wide-ranging historical and contemporary concerns and interests, as well as varied aspects of domestic, provincial, national, international and global significance.

BJCS welcomes articles that deal directly or through a comparative frame with Canada’s experiences, place and role in the wider English or French speaking worlds. Its prime objective is to further knowledge, discussion and understanding of Canada’s diverse experiences, peoples, places, perspectives and priorities in past and contemporary contexts. Literature reviews and shorter articles on teaching and learning related topics are also welcome. There is normally one general issue and one themed issue each year although this may vary.

British Journal of Canadian Studies (Revue Britannique d’Études Canadiennes) est publié deux fois par an par Liverpool University Press pour le compte de l’Association Britannique d’Études Canadiennes. Lancé il y a plus de trente ans, le BJCS est global, pluridisciplinaire et international et invite des contributions provenant de tous les domaines des arts et des sciences humaines et des sciences économiques et sociales.

Le BJCS publie les travaux de recherche et les études sur l’analyse d’enjeux canadiens, couvrant un large éventail de préoccupations et de centres d’intérêt historiques et contemporains, ainsi que divers aspects d’importance intérieure, provinciale, nationale, internationale et globale.

Le BJCS invite les articles traitant directement ou à travers une structure comparative, des expériences, de la place et du rôle du Canada dans les ensembles plus larges des mondes anglophones et francophones. Nous invitons également les propositions de revues de littérature et les articles plus courts.

Beginning with Volume 22 (1), 2009, British Journal of Canadian Studies is indexed and abstracted in:
