Canadian Biosystems Engineering provides a platform for rapid dissemination of novel and high impact research in engineering and biological sciences. The journal interfaces engineering with the biological world and covers wide range of fields including energy, soil and water, power and machinery, bioprocess, information and electrical technologies, food processing, forestry, agricultural structures, bio-nanotechnology and environment with focus on key issues such as environmental sustainability, food security and safety.

The first volume of the journal was published in 1959.  The journal was developed to bring all sectors of sciences and engineering and create a truly international platform to share and discuss significant, novel and high impact research.

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's practice, profession, and solutions. 

Canadian Physician Assistants are academically and clinically educated medical generalist who practice medicine. PA education prepares a medical generalist adaptable to any clinical environment including primary health care, specialty practice, consulting or hospital-based roles.  PAs will over time develop an increased knowledge of a medical or surgical specialty.  The PAs’ scope of practice mirrors that of the physicians, within a trust-centred relationship formailed in practice descriptions and formailzed 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 the lay-public or our patients with directions for self-care and treatment. When it comes to health, direct communication with qualified and knowledgeable medical providers makes a difference.

An Inukshuk in the shape of a person signifies safety, hope and friendship.

Prairie Fire Review of Books publishes reviews of new releases from the literary presses of (primarily Western) Canada. Most of the reviews cannot be found in the printed version of Prairie Fire.

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.

The CJHR is published by Robson Hall, Faculty of Law at the University of Manitoba. The journal is a peer-reviewed forum for scholars to explore concerns in human rights and humanitarian law and policy relevant to Canadian society.

In addition to traditional legal scholarship, the CJHR welcomes submissions from varying disciplines, including the liberal arts and social sciences. Articles are published both online and in print
