JOURNAL OF COMPARATIVE FAMILY STUDIES

IMPORTANT NOTICE JUNE 1 2016

The University of Calgary is currently experiencing a major issue with email and file systems. Due to this problem, we have not had access to email since May 27th. We were just advised that this situation may persist for several days. As well, some email may be permanently lost between May 27th and the resumption of service. I will post here once service resumes. Please wait until that time to email the office. We appreciate your patience and will reply to emails as soon as service is restored. If you do not receive a reply within the next 2 weeks, please call the office at 403-220-7317. Thank you. 

Updated: June 9 2016: There are still issues with email. If you are concerned your letter did not reach the office please telephone, or wait until this notice is updated that the problem is resolved. Thank you, and we apologize for this disruption. 

JCFS was established in 1970 to publish high quality articles based on research in comparative and cross cultural family studies. The journal promotes a better understanding of both intra- and inter-ethnic family interaction that is essential for all multicultural societies. It draws articles from social science researchers around the world and contains valuable material for Sociologists, Anthropologists, Family counselors and Social Psychologists.

THE JOURNAL PUBLISHES PEER-REVIEWED ARTICLES, RESEARCH NOTES AND BOOK REVIEWS.
