Acadiensis Journal of the History of the Atlantic Region Revue d’histoire de la région Atlantique

Managing editor(s): Stephen Dutcher / Editor(s): Erin Morton, Peter L. Twohig


Acadiensis was established in 1971 in order to promote the study of the history of Atlantic Canada. From the beginning, the region and its history have been broadly defined. The scope includes not only the territory of Canada's four Atlantic Provinces but also northern New England, the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the North Atlantic as they impinge on the history of the region. Contributors have included historians (who account for the largest single group of authors) as well as specialists in historical geography, economic history, folklore, literature, political science, anthropology, sociology, law and other fields. Comparative studies dealing with more than one region are also welcome. Articles are accepted and published in either English or French.

This publication is published twice annually, in the Spring and Autumn.

Editorial Guidelines:

Acadiensis promotes the study of the history of Atlantic Canada, broadly defined to include the territory of Canada's four Atlantic Provinces, northern New England, the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the North Atlantic. Articles are published in either English or French.

Manuscripts submitted must be original, previously unpublished studies. Acadiensis policy asks for three double-blind peer review assessments for research essays and research notes.  Present and Past essays, forums and review essays undergo internal peer review within the editorial team. Reviews and review essays are normally commissioned by the Review Editor.

We prefer to receive electronic manuscripts that are about 30 pages in length and no longer than 50 pages in total, typewritten and double-spaced, including footnotes and any supplementary materials such as tables. When preparing a manuscript for consideration, please remove the author's name from the title page. Authors are encouraged to use the Acadiensis style in their submissions; authors will have to convert their submissions to the house style if and when their submission is accepted for publication. Please download a copy of our in-house style guide.

Authors wishing to submit a manuscript to Acadiensis are encouraged to do so through the Acadiensis Open Journal System (OJS) site.
