The Canadian Philatelist (TCP), the official journal of The Royal Philatelic Society of Canada, is Canada’s official national stamp magazine for philatelists.
Articles in either of Canada’s two official languages will be considered for publication. Manuscripts received in either of the two aforementioned languages will be printed in whichever one they are received. If you are able to provide a translated article for publication on The RPSC website, that would be most appreciated.
Articles of specific interest may be published in both official languages at the discretion of the editor.
We prefer that articles be written by our members, but will accept single submissions from non-members.
Material reflecting negatively on The RPSC, its members, or philately in general, will not be published.
Articles on any aspect of philately will be considered for publication.
Original and never-before-published material will be given preference.
No fee, compensation, or honorarium will be paid for submissions, solicited or unsolicited, accepted for publication.
Authors may be reimbursed for nominal out-of-pocket expenses for extraordinary items such as photos or other illustrations specifically requested by the editor. Such amounts must be agreed upon in advance by both parties.
Every effort will be made to publish accepted submissions in a timely manner but delays must be expected unless otherwise agreed to by the editor who has sole discretion when specific manuscripts will be published.
Articles deemed to be of a controversial nature will be referred to the editorial committee at the discretion of the editor for an opinion on their suitability for publication in TCP.
