Submission Guidelines

CJIS publishes articles, reviews, and other forms of creative expression which promote an understanding and appreciation of Irish history and culture in their broadest terms. It has a special focus on the Irish experience in Canada and in the other countries of the Diaspora. It encourages a variety of critical and methodological perspectives and welcomes in particular multi- and inter- disciplinary approaches as well as explorations of visual, material, and spatial culture. Articles should be aimed at both an academic audience and the interested lay reader, be written in an accessible and engaging style in English, French, or Irish, and represent a new contribution to scholarship in Irish or Canadian Irish Studies. All articles are submitted to two anonymous referees before publication.


All material should be original work, and should not have been previously published elsewhere, or under consideration anywhere else.

Submission should be made to the Editor by email attachment as a single Word file. Images should be attached as separate .jpgs or .tifs and not embedded in the Word file. (Please see the submission guidelines, below, for instructions regarding images.)

Please include a short bio (one paragraph) in the body of your email.

Articles should be in the range of 5000-8000 words. Please include a 100-150 word abstract.

Book and exhibition reviews should be in the range of 500-1000 words. Please contact one of the CJIS Reviews Editors if you are interested in writing a book or exhibition review.
