  • At The Forks

    At the Forks: Where Indigenous and Human Rights Intersect is an open-access platform to highlight scholarship that engages in critical conversation around the connections, tensions, limits, and possibilities of Indigenous and human rights, with a focus on the prairies and its neighbours. 


  • The Journal of Canada’s Physician Assistants

    The Journal of Canada's Physician Assistants (JCANPA) is a peer-reviewed open-access journal.  JCANPA is a forum to share and translate knowledge of Canada's Physician Assistants' practice, profession, and solutions. 

    Canadian Physician Assistants are academically and clinically educated medical generalists who practice medicine within a formalized and collaborative partnership with physicians. PA education prepares medical clinicians who can adapt to their clinical environments which may include primary health care, specialty practice, surgery, emergency or hospital-based roles.  PAs over time develop an increased knowledge of a medical or surgical specialty.  The PAs’ scope of practice mirrors that of the physicians, and practice within trust-centred relationships and formalized contracts of supervision.

    Visit your Physician Assistant, Nurse Practitioner, or Physician to discuss your health and medical concerns. This journal is not intended to provide directions for self-care and treatment. When it comes to health, direct communication with qualified and knowledgeable medical providers makes a difference.

    Respectfully used to symbolize our Journal's values, hopes, and purpose, an Inukshuk in the shape of a person signifies safety, hope and friendship. Used as a directional marker in Canada's North, the Inukshuk is an Inuit symbol of communication.  From the Inuktitut, ᐃᓄᒃᓱᒃ, plural ᐃᓄᒃᓱᐃᑦ; alternatively, inukshuk in Inuinnaqtun, iñuksuk in Iñupiaq, or inukshuk in English.  

  • Proceedings of Manitoba's Undergraduate Science and Engineering Research

    The Proceedings of Manitoba’s Undergraduate Science and Engineering Research journal is a peer-reviewed undergraduate journal. Students receive recognition for their research in a wide range of scientific disciplines. The undertaking of writing a journal manuscript will enhance understandings of the significance of their respective projects in a broader context. This, in turn, will foster a tremendous growth in their intellectual development outside of the classroom setting, and serves as preparation for a career in research.

    Submissions must be APA, 12 font, line numbers on, and no personal information in the actual document that is submitted.

    This ensures a double blind peer-review process.
