The Journal of Australian, Canadian, and Aotearoa New Zealand Studies (JACANZS) is a peer-reviewed, online, open access, nonprofit journal (it is published under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License) of the Australian, Canadian and New Zealand Studies Network (ACNZSN).

This includes history, politics, literature, law, anthropology, and Indigenous studies. JACANZS’ aim and scope is to publish articles in various disciplines on at least more than one country of focus of the journal, i.e. Australia and Canada or Canada and Aotearoa New Zealand etc. However, articles which focus on just one country are also welcome.
Volume 2, Issues 1 Deadline: 31 December 2021
Manuscripts of a maximum of 10,000 words in length (including footnotes and a short bibliography) should be submitted as a Word document, along with a separate short abstract of no more than 250 words, up to a maximum of five key words, author contact details, and institutional affiliation, if any, to Associate Professor Jatinder Mann (Editorin-chief) at acanzsjournal[at]gmail.com.
Manuscripts should be formatted according to the Chicago reference style. Manuscripts should also be double spaced and use Arial font, size 12. All manuscripts should be anonymised and will undergo double blind peer review, after an initial vetting by the journal editor.
JACANZS aims to publish Vol. 2, Issue 1 of the journal by the end of June 2022.
Volume 2, Issues 2 Deadline: 31 March 2022
For Vol. 2, Issue 2 of JACANZS, ACNZSN is issuing a call for a special issue of the journal.
This can be in any areas of strength of the journal as outlined above. In terms of geographical scope, it will be great if the proposal could aim to include articles that focus on more than one country of focus of JACANZS. However, as with normal issues of the journal, articles that focus on just one country will also be considered J Proposals should be no longer than 500 words and include the theme of the special issue, details of the editor/s (including contacts details and institutional affiliations if any), plan for dissemination of the call for papers, and a timeline for publication.
Vol. 2, Issue 2 of JACANZS is expected to be published by the end of 2022 and so would need to enter production at the end of October 2022 at the latest (i.e. finalised articles would need to be sent to the Editor-in-chief for proofs to be produced). Securing of peer reviewers of articles in the special issue will be the responsibility of the editors of that particular issue as will managing revisions to articles. Proposals should be sent to Associate Professor Jatinder Mann at acanzsjournal[at]gmail.com
