Canadian Journal of Sociology Goes OA

Announcement from the OA / UA Open Access Publishing Information for the University of Alberta Community.

The Canadian Journal of Sociology (CJS) is one of the journals hosted by the UofA Libraries; Online Publishing Services using the Open Journal Systems software. Starting in January 2008, CJS has announced it will drop its print publication / subscription-based program and become a solely online, open access journal.

See Dr. Kevin Haggerty’s Editorial: Change and Continuity at the Canadian Journal of Sociology/Cahiers canadiens de sociologie

Kudos to the University of Alberta Libraries, and U of A OA Librarian heroes Pam Ryan and Denise Koufougiannakis! [my alma mater and former classmates, I am proud to say!]

Dr. Haggerty's editorial is well worth reading. Excerpts can be found on my blog, The Imaginary Journal of Poetic Economics.
