From the Alternatives Journal guidelines:

A\J is dedicated to in-depth analysis of environmental issues, including their ecological, social and economic dimensions. It combines the learned rigour of an academic journal with the accessible style and format of a general-interest magazine. This unique hybrid has proved itself by its staying power: A\J has been publishing continuously in Canada since 1971, making it the oldest environmental policy journal in the country.

A\J aims to publish the best environmental stories in the country. We seek written and visual contributions that are engaging and that provide a deeper level of analysis and insight than the mainstream media.

We invite proposals for investigative features, shorter reports and notes, interviews and profiles, resource guides, research findings, cultural commentary and compelling photography, illustration and graphics.
