Art/Research International: A Transdisciplinary Journal

Art/Research International is a forum dedicated to exploring and advancing art as and/or within the research process across disciplines and internationally. It offers a space for art/research practitioners: to draw on working examples to discuss challenges, best practices, ethical quandaries, and new directions  for the practice of bringing art and research processes together; to discuss and explore methodological ambitions and theoretical or philosophical underpinnings and issues of art/research practices; and to provide insights and critiques of art/research projects of other art/research practitioners - to showcase, support, and comment on the practical work taking place ‘in the field.’

aboriginal policy studies

aboriginal policy studies is an online, peer-reviewed and multidisciplinary journal that, on a bi-annual basis, publishes original, scholarly, and policy relevant research on issues relevant to Métis, non-status Indians and urban Aboriginal peoples in Canada. We encourage the submission of articles by and for a wide audience of scholars, researchers, community activists, and policymakers. Though focused on the Canadian milieu, we welcome comparative work from an international Indigenous context pertinent to Canadian readers. A similarly broad scope of methodological approaches is encouraged. 

La revue Études des politiques des Autochtones est une publication en ligne pluridisciplinaire et évaluée par les pairs qui, deux fois par année, publie des recherches originales, érudites et relatives à la politique sur des sujets touchant les Métis, les Indiens non inscrits et les peuples autochtones vivants en milieu urbain au Canada. Nous invitons la soumission d’articles par et pour un vaste public d’érudits et d’érudites, de chercheurs et chercheuses, d’activistes communautaire et de décisionnaires. Bien que nous nous concentrions sur le milieu canadien, nous acceptons avec plaisir la proposition d’études comparatives provenant d’un contexte autochtone international et intéressantes pour le contexte canadien. Nous encourageons également un large éventail d’approches méthodologiques.

Canadian Journal of University Continuing Education

The Canadian Journal of University Continuing Education was published from 1995-2016 with two primary objectives. The first was to advance and disseminate knowledge by publishing analytical and research papers, reports, reviews, and commentaries of value to professional practice in continuing education in general, and university continuing education in particular. The second was to encourage dialogue about continuing education within and among relevant professional and academic communities.

 

After twenty years of publication which has seen many changes in the structure of continuing educaiton the journal was renamed to reflect the current realities of post-secondary education as well as to expand our audience to a broader international community. Although the  Journal of Professional Continuing and Online Education has a new name, you will find it reflects the same quality and content of CJUCE modernized for the current climate.
