News & Resources: Volume 20 Issue 3, 2015

A Note to TIJ Readers:

As you know, TIJ has been a free open access journal for its twenty years of its existence. It is an independent journal and does not have a sponsor such as a professional association. Many appeals for donations and sponsors have been made but without much success. I have therefore personally been paying most of the costs of TIJ. The Editorial Board has decided that we must now move to charging authors for publication. This is what the Canadian social science research council, SSHRC, is encouraging. With sadness and reluctance, we will therefore start charging authors as of January 1, 2016. The submission fee will be $100 and the publication fee $900 Canadian, to be paid through TIJ's Paypal account. Papers already in process as of December 31, 2015 will not be charged.
