About the magazine

Academic Matters is produced in the Dish With One Spoon Territory, which extends from the Great Lakes to Quebec and from Lake Simcoe into the United States. The territory exists as the result of a treaty between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas, and Haudenosaunee that bound them to protect and share the land and creatures within it. Subsequent Indigenous nations and peoples, Europeans, and all newcomers have been invited into this treaty in the spirit of peace, friendship, and respect. It is in this spirit that each issue of Academic Matters is produced.

Academic Matters explores issues of relevance to higher education in Ontario, other provinces in Canada, and globally. It is a forum for thoughtful and thought-provoking, original and engaging discussion of current trends in postsecondary education and consideration of academe’s future direction. The print version of Academic Matters is published two times a year and is mailed to 18,000 professors, academic librarians, and others interested in higher education issues across Canada.

The Academic Matters website, in addition to making the print version available online, features web-exclusive articles, film and book review essays, and blogs written by academic opinion leaders on the many issues facing the academy.

Reproduction of articles requires the permission of the author and publisher. Copyright in material accepted for publication remains with the author. The publisher may choose, however, to translate and/or reproduce material in print and electronic form. All published material reflects the views of the author and not the publisher.
