Proceeding of the Pierre Savard Conference submissions

Guidelines to submit a contribution

All the articles submitted to Strata must be original work that has not yet been published. They must also be the work of graduate students and should enrich historical research. Articles can discuss all historical periods, geographical zones, and historical themes, so long as the methodological and conceptual approaches are clearly articulated. By publishing articles promoting a wide variety of approaches and themes, we hope to shed light upon the current dynamism of the field of history in Canada.

The contributions will undergo blind reviews by a scientific committee composed of PhD students and professors who will base their recommendations based on the originality of the study, the value of the publication, and the quality of the writing. The articles will then be revised by Strata’s Editorial Committee. We ask authors to send their contributions by email to, accompanied by an abstract (maximum of 125 words), and a short biography (maximum of 75 words). Confirmation that contributions have been received will be sent via email within a week.

It should be noted that the prizewinner of the best communication contribution for the Pierre Savard Conference 2018 will be exempted of the review’s evaluation process and will be directly qualified to be published in our next issue as part of the conference proceedings. However, the prizewinner contribution will be subject to revision by our Editorial Committee in order to be published.
