CJC Focuses on Online Publishing Beginning January 2021


After 46 years of print production the Candian Journal of Communication will focus on its online presence beginning  with volume 46 issue 1 in early 2021. This shift out of print will provide increased opportunities for such innovations as our recently inaugurated Policy Portal and, shortly to be announced, curated collections of already published thematically related articles with overviews. CJC will continue to publish 4 issues per volume/year.

Full and immediate access will be available solely via a CJC subscription. Twelve months after publication, all journal content is openly accessible. The revenue generated via subscriptions combines with grants and other smaller income streams to underwrite the labour involved in maintaining our high editorial and production standards. CJC is a fully registered not-for-profit corporation. 

Current print subscribers transitioning to online subscriptions, will experience a cost saving in addition to gaining access to CJC’s Policy Portal and other innovations in the works. For any needed subscription and payment information please contact subscriptions@cjc-online.ca.
