Submit to the SSAC Journal

Authors should send a copy of their manuscript, prepared according to the guidelines of the Journal of the Society for the Study of Architecture in Canada (JSSAC). “Essays” can comprise 2500 to 3500 words and five to ten illustrations. “Analyses” usually comprise around 7000 words and fifteen to twenty illustrations. Shorter or longer articles can be considered, and reviews are also accepted. Reports may vary in length as they are preferably published integrally. The necessary permission to publish must have been secured from the organization for which reports were intended.

Authors must submit their article in an electronic medium or by email. Illustrations should accompany the manuscript. These consist of digital files (360 dpi, TIFF or EPS format), sent to the editor via file-sharing service (Dropbox, Google Drive, WeTransfer, etc.), or photographic prints or slides. Photocopies or facsimiles are acceptable only for line drawings. It is the responsibility of the author to obtain the required reproduction authorizations for the illustrations and to pay copyright fees when necessary. The SSAC and the editor of the JSSAC decline responsibility in that matter. All illustrations should be numbered and have captions, including, where applicable, subject, date, and name of architect, author or source.

All manuscripts are submitted for review to the SSAC’s Editorial Review Panel who report to the editor. The editor informs authors of the decision, no later than sixty days after initial submission; the editor also ensures that the requested modifications have been made before the final acceptance and proposition of the publication date.
