Our Review Process:

Each submission is reviewed by a minimum of two reviewers: a member of the PlatForum editorialboard, and a contributor to the current issue. This process allows all contributors to take up both reviewer and reviewee positions. Review guidelines will be provided. It is our hope that this networking of ideas will generate dialogue, strengthen the journal, and foster a broader sense of community among anthropologically-minded students across Canada.

Please be Advised:

The submission of a work does not automatically result in its acceptance for publication, as this depends on the number of submissions received, the quality of work received, as well as the extent to which individual submissions reflect the themes of the journal. The final decision on the publication of a given submission remains with the PlatForum editorial board.
