About the Journal

Focus and Scope

Canadian Food Studies / La Revue canadienne des études sur l’alimentation is the open-access, online journal of the Canadian Association for Food Studies. The journal’s peer-reviewed publications are as diverse and entangled as the subject of food itself, providing critical perspectives on the ways in which humans, food, and the natural and built environments construct one another. As a whole, the journal represents how food serves as a point of connection among communities of thought and practice, challenging disciplinary and sectorial boundaries, and inspire new frontiers of thinking.

Because of the breadth of food studies, CFS/RCÉA accepts submissions across different themes, categories, and geographies. We invite contributions from community and academic researchers, food practitioners and activists, artists and media creators. (See our Author Guidelines for compete details.) Submissions may be made in English or French, and work will be published in either language.

Work should address Canadian topics and/or be produced by Canadian or Canada-based individuals. All submissions (except Commentaries, Book/Art/Event Reviews, and Interviews) are subject to a double-blind peer-review process.

Peer Review Process

Manuscripts are initially reviewed for content and quality by the editorial team. Submissions recommended for peer review will be read by a minimum of two expert reviewers. Publishing decisions are based on reports from those individuals and the editorial committee.

Publication Frequency

Regular issues of the journal are published twice a year. Themed issues are published on an irregular schedule, as needed. The current issue is displayed on journal’s main page and past issues are catalogued in the archive section.
