Article Submission Deadlines:

Issue Theme Submission Deadline
Issue 1, Vol.44 During the CPA convention this past summer, students, researchers and practitioners held a virtual panel addressing, Reclaiming Power and Place: The Final Report of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (2019). The upcoming issue of Psynopsis takes inspiration from that presentation. We invite submissions reflecting on the Final Report into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls and the Calls to Justice. Topics for this edition may include: understanding violence against Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA People, colonization as gendered oppression, wellness and healing, right to culture, health, security and justice, and resources to support the Report’s 231 Calls to Justice and the National Inquiry’s guiding principle: “Our Women and Girls are Sacred.” October 8, 2021 extended to November 1, 2021
Issue 2, Vol.44 TBA January 20, 2022
Issue 3, Vol.43 Education, Schools, and Schooling: Looking to the Future
Psynopsis is calling for articles highlighting contemporary issues, innovations, and practices in education, schools, and schooling. Given that education is life long and schooling may occur in both traditional and not traditional school settings practices may reflect a wide array of ages from the early years into adulthood that address the learning needs of our diverse Canadian context. Articles should describe research, service initiative, and/or other educational strategies, successes, and lessons learned.

Issue 4, Vol.43 Public Policy
Psychology is the study, practice and science of how people think, feel and behave. Be it human rights, health care innovation, access to mental health care, climate change, or medical assistance in dying, how people think, feel and behave is directly relevant to almost any issue, policy, funding decision, or regulation facing individuals, families, workplaces and society. In this issue we invite researchers, educators, consultants and practitioners of psychology, as well as organizations of psychology, to submit articles that describe how the science and practice of psychology impacts legislation, regulation or policy at an institutional (e.g. school, hospital, university, corporation), municipal, provincial/territorial, or national level. You can describe an impact already achieved or a policy gap that you think psychology can fill.
