CALJ/Journals’ Responce To COVID-19

As the current crisis unfolds, a strong sense of community among journals is as important as ever. CALJ continues and will continue to support and advocate Canadian journals through this time of uncertainty.

We want to reach out to members to learn how you are affected by the COVID-10 pandemic. The CALJ Executive wants to make sure we understand the full impact the crisis has had on the industry in order to advocate strongly to partners, stakeholders, and governments.
