Duties and Responsibilities

About CALJ

From the first meeting in 1990 that led to the formation of CALJ, the vocation of the association has focused on the well-being of learned journals:

To represent, develop and support the academic community of Canadian learned journals in disseminating original research and scholarly information, and to promote intellectual culture in Canada and internationally.

CALJ operates as a not-for-profit association and is member-driven, identifying priorities and establishing projects and activities as the CALJ journals and other CALJ members direct. Through interaction with government agencies, the research community and other partners, CALJ works to strengthen both individual journals and the journal community as a whole.

The three key functions of CALJ are to provide services to CALJ member journals, to develop industry initiatives for CALJ member journals, and to enhance the collective strengths of CALJ members and the journal community.
