About Peer Review


The Canadian Journal of Film Studies / Revue canadienne d’études cinématographiques is Canada's leading peer-reviewed film journal. The peer review process allows for an unbiased evaluation of work, encourages scholarly rigor, fosters a generous scholarly community, and helps us create a journal that actively appraises the current state of Canadian and international film/media scholarship.

Articles are only published after they have been evaluated by a committee of peers. CJFS/RCEC uses a double-blind refereeing process. Suitable submissions are read by at least two anonymous referees. The referees are chosen by our editorial team, and are all noted experts in their fields. Referees are unpaid. CJFS/RCEC also publishes book reviews, cinédocuments, and other general interest works that are vetted and edited by our editorial staff exclusively.
