Archivaria, the journal of the Association of Canadian Archivists (ACA), is devoted to the scholarly investigation of archives in Canada and internationally.
The journal welcomes articles and other submissions exploring the history, nature, and theory of archives or the use of archives. The journal aims to be a bridge of communication among archivists, and between archivists and users of archives. The various issues serve well to indicate the breadth of possible subjects relating to archives: various media and their evolution and characteristics; theoretical problems; practical solutions; new fields of history (and related disciplines), and new kinds of documentation being explored by users; new technological developments; legal and ethical concerns; the history of archives, individual archivists, and archival trends; the analysis of record-keeping practices over time and space; the relationship of archivists to other information management professionals; and much else.
Archivaria is published semi-annually in spring and fall with grateful acknowledgement for assistance provided by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and by York University.
Archivaria is available by print or online subscription. Reprints of published articles as well as back issues are available. Individual and institutional members of ACA receive Archivaria as part of their membership.
Call for Papers for a Special Issue of Archivaria (Fall 2013)“From Paper Savers to Wired Lives: Archivists’ Perspectives on Personal Archives.”
