The University of Alberta Libraries is pleased to welcome three new Open Access publications to our journal publishing program:

International Kimberlite Conference Extended Abstracts

The International Kimberlite Conference is dedicated to research on diamonds, diamond deposits, diamond-bearing rocks, and the Earth’s upper mantle. These conferences have been held all over the world since 1973, bridging the gap between academic research in the field of geological science and the diamond industry. The research presented at IKC contributes significantly to our understanding of the Earth and its composition; however, many of the older abstracts have become very difficult to locate over time. Dr. Graham Pearson and his team in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences have been working with the UofA Libraries to digitize and publish the extended abstracts from 1973 to 1998, providing convenient and open access to valuable, oft-cited research in the field. This project will continue into the 2019 to include all of the extended abstracts available, including those for the most recent conference.

The Political Science Undergraduate Review is published by the University of Alberta’s Political Science Undergraduate Association, providing a venue for undergraduates involved in the field of political science to get involved in the peer-review process and the opportunity to have their work published. The journal covers a wide range of topics, looking at political concerns both worldwide and local through a multiplicity of perspectives. The PSUR welcomes those of all experience levels and encourages first-timers to submit their best work for the chance to develop their CVs and prepare themselves for grad school or other research opportunities!

Intonations is the graduate student journal of the University of Alberta’s Department of Music, slated to launch in 2019. The journal aims to take an interdisciplinary approach to music study, encompassing diverse areas of research including: ethnomusicology, musicology, music theory, composition, performance, philosophy of music, music technology, music pedagogy, music cognition, and interdisciplinary studies, and more. Authors, performers, and composers are encouraged to be experimental and to embrace the multi-media capabilities of Intonations in their submissions to foster creativity in music research.
