The Canadian Journal of Autism Equity provides immediate open access to its content on the principle of equitable access to knowledge, research and stories freely available to the public.


The Canadian Journal of Autism Equity along with McMaster University Library Press will endeavour to support authors who wish to submit content to the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) and other relevant sources for indexing.


Editors, authors and reviewers are required to keep all details of the editorial and peer review process on submitted manuscripts confidential.

If a reviewer wishes to seek advice from colleagues while assessing a manuscript, the reviewer must consult with the editor and should ensure that confidentiality is maintained and that the names of any such colleagues are provided to the journal within the final report. Regardless of whether a submission is eventually published, correspondence with the journal, referees’ reports and other confidential material must not be published, disclosed or otherwise publicized without prior written consent. 

The Canadian Journal of Autism equity reserves the right to contact funders, regulatory bodies, journals and the authors’ institutions in cases of suspected research or publishing misconduct.


Articles published in this journal represent the opinions of the authors and do not necessarily represent the opinions of the Canadian Journal of Autism Equity. The use of trade names is for identification purposes only and does not constitute an endorsement by CJAE.
