Exploring Human Experience in the North

The Northern Review is a multidisciplinary journal exploring human experience in the Circumpolar North. It is the only peer-reviewed journal in Canada devoted exclusively to northern issues and published north of 60. Since 1988, it has published articles covering a broad range of circumpolar human issues and topics in the social sciences & humanities. The journal publishes two issues a year, in spring and fall.

The editors invite scholarly articles and book reviews relating to human experience in and thought about the Circumpolar North.
