Student Journal Publishing

Student Journal Forum 2023

The annual Student Journal Forum (SJF) took place online February 21-23, 2023. Thank you to everyone who participated!

Now in its 8th year, this Canada-wide online event was open to everyone but targeted at post-secondary students in Canada who are involved with or considering starting a student journal.

This year’s forum included a half day of skills-based sessions, lightning talks from Canadian student journal teams, an “Ask me Anything” panel featuring experienced journal editors, and a panel on transitioning to a publishing career featuring experienced scholarly publishing professionals.

Look forward to seeing you at SJF 2024! 

Can't wait until next year?
