                Should the CJPS become an open access journal?

                Open access (OA) is rapidly gaining support in the scientific community. As of 2021, the CJPS will no longer be eligible for SSHRC’s Aid to Scholarly Journal grant unless its scholarly content is minimally accessible for free within 12 months of publication. The CJPS, the CPSA and the SQSP are vulnerable because transitioning to OA would reduce revenues from the journal’s subscription fees and royalties, which represent a significant proportion of their income. A CPSA-SQSP committee has prepared a preliminary report -available HERE making recommendations on the path ahead for the CJPS in this changing context.

                The committee will present its report and receive feedback from the Association’s members at a ROUNDTABLE during the CPSA Annual Conference in Vancouver, June 5, 2019, 10:30am to 12:00pm.

                CPSA Statement on Proposal to Ban Gender Studies Programs

                The Canadian Political Science Association shares the concerns noted by other scholarly associations regarding the attack on academic freedom represented by the Hungarian government's proposal to ban Gender Studies programs within its higher education institutions. The proposed law to abolish accredited MA programs in Gender Studies in the Central European University (CEU) and E?tv?s Loránd University (ELTE) calls into question the Hungarian government's commitment to the principles of democracy and to the spirit of free intellectual inquiry. Excellence in scholarship depends on the freedom to explore all aspects of social and economic inequality, including their gender dimensions. Gender studies programs have an important contribution to make to illuminating important patterns of social and economic interaction, policy impacts, and the exercise of political power. Societies thrive when institutions of higher learning exercise full academic freedom. The Canadian Political Science Association calls upon the Minister of Education to restore the accredited MA programs in Gender Studies in the interest of protecting the principles and practice of academic freedom and intellectual pluralism.

                Professor Robert Young – In Memoriam

                The Canadian Political Science Association has lost a dear friend and valued colleague, with the death of Bob Young. Bob was President of the CPSA in 2003-04, and had a long and distinguished career at the University of Western Ontario. He was one of the nation’s leading scholars on Canadian federalism and also the significance of multilevel governance for public policy at the municipal level. He held a Canada Research Chair in Multilevel Governance and received a number of awards and distinctions for both research and teaching. He published extensively on federalism, provincial politics, municipal politics and social policy. He was also an important contributor to projects at the Institute of Intergovernmental Relations at Queen’s University. He was a regular participant at CPSA meetings and in addition to his outstanding contributions to research and service, will be fondly remembered for his good humour and as a witty conversationalist. We send our condolences to his family, colleagues and friends.

                Janet Hiebert,
                CPSA President

                Dear Colleagues:
