Announcement: Winner of the 2021 SRC-CALJ Journal Innovation Award

Scholarly & Research Communication–Canadian Association of Learned Journals Journal Innovation Award

Scholarly & Research Communication and the Canadian Association of Learned Journals are proud to announce the winner of the 2021 SRC–CALJ Journal Innovation Award.


Survey results for how the pandemic affected scholarly publishers in Canada

From November 2020 to January 2021, CALJ conducted a survey to better understand how the journal community in Canada has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey was shared with members of CALJ, with the journals currently hosted on Érudit, and with the wider Canadian scholarly journal community.

A total of 58 Canadian journals completed the survey. The results and the raw data relating to their responses is found below.

CALJ would like to thank Érudit for their assistance in drafting the survey as well as in distributing the survey.
