Can J Public Health

Special Announcement

Starting 1 January 2018, Springer will be the publisher for the Canadian Journal of Public Health. While the journal has been self-published by the Canadian Public Health Association (CPHA) since 1910, this new collaboration will allow for streamlined publication processes and for the journal to disseminate its content to a wider international audience.

NEW Manuscript Submissions

Starting 6 November 2017, all new manuscripts should be submitted online via the Springer website. Please note that you will need to create a new account if you do not already have a Springer account.

In-progress Manuscripts

All manuscripts submitted prior to 6 November 2017 will continue to be processed through the journal’s Open Journal Systems (OJS) platform until each manuscript is declined, rejected or accepted. Accepted manuscripts will then be transferred to the Springer system for publishing. Additional details will be provided to authors when that transfer process takes place.

Past Issues

The current volume of the journal (Volume 108) will continue to be published by CPHA. All published issues through to Volume 108 will continue to be available at this location.
