In October 2020, J-Schools Canada will officially launch an Open Access peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the free discussion of contemporary trends, research and debates in journalism and journalism pedagogy.


We invite your involvement.


We seek future-facing scholarly articles of 6,000-8,000 words on journalism-related topics featuring innovations in research, theory, practice and teaching. Substantive works of journalism that focus on journalism will also be considered, in any format, as well as conference papers and superior graduate student work. Our first call will go out in October and detailed submission guidelines will be posted at an online portal at


We invite immediate expressions of interest to join our review committee, tasked with first readings, reviews and reviewer recruitment. It’s a great way to keep on top of the latest work in journalism research and pedagogy. Holding a committee position will also help you meet your institution’s collegial service requirements. Please contact


To ensure your work reaches a wide public audience, F&F will be published subscription-free on our widely-read and highly accessible platform, J-Source, and disseminated to a ready-made audience via the J-Source newsletter and social media networks. To contribute a tax-deductible donation toward our accessible scholarship goal, please visit and seek out the J-Source Journalism Project.
