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. 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.  Respectfully used to symbolise our Journal's values, hopes, and purpose.

The University of Manitoba Journal of Medicine (UMJM) is looking for pieces relating to medical science, clinical or surgical medicine, technology in medicine, medical ethics, medical humanities, narrative medicine, history of medicine, epidemiology, healthcare, social determinants of health, and global health.

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.
