Fonds d'Archives logo






The Archives Society of Alberta is pleased to announce the launch of Fonds d'Archives, an online, open access, scholarly journal devoted to the archives profession. The journal will explore all aspects of archival practice, including but not limited to appraisal, arrangement, description, outreach and preservation. 

The ASA especially encourages submissions that explore archival issues from practical, working-level perspectives or theoretical explorations with demonstrated praxis. The journal is committed to presenting new voices and different perspectives and therefore welcome submissions from students, new professionals and working archivists who may not have published before.

The editors welcome submissions on the following topics:

  • Analyses of contemporary archival issues and trends, primarily in the Canadian context, but international perspectives are also welcome
  • Reviews of books, exhibitions, websites and multimedia projects with significant archival content
  • Reports on specific projects involving the acquisition, appraisal, arrangement and description of records
  • Studies of outreach and other public engagement initiatives
