Focus and Scope

Established in 1969, BC Studies, a quarterly devoted to the understanding of British Columbia, has played a unique role in the intellectual life of the province of British Columbia ever since. Housed at the University of British Columbia from its inception, BC Studies is a well-respected peer reviewed journal, an important publishing venue of original research from a diverse group of scholars, and a training ground for students. Through it's focus on British Columbia, BC Studies provides a regional link between disciplines in the social sciences, and between the scholarly community and passionate generalists. A typical issue contains three or, increasingly, four articles, book reviews by authorities in the field, and an ongoing bibliography of books, articles and government publications on BC.
