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

For the current issue, visit the Fonds d'Archives website. 

Please note that Fonds d'Archives is currently in hiatus.


Fonds d'Archives commits to  presenting new voices and different perspectives and therefore welcome submissions from students, new professionals and working archivists who may not have published before. Submissions that explore archival issues from practical, working-level perspectives or theoretical explorations with demonstrated praxis are particularly encouraged.

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
