EDITOR'S REPORT

Bryan Palmer reported that Labour/Le Travail will be moving to Athabasca University. The reasons for leaving Memorial University have been discussed at the last two or three CCLH meetings. The Director of the Faculty of Arts publication unit at MUN resigned May 1. The journal has been paying a fee for service recently. In October, that fee was increased to $45 000 effective 1 April 2007. Bryan Palmer had last year's fee for service reduced by $5 000 to $20 000 and began looking for a new location for the journal. The impact on staff at MUN was a consideration: Irene and Josephine have seniority and will not be affected by the departure of Labour/Le Travail. Had the journal stayed at MUN, CCLH would have been paying $70,000 to $80 000 per year. Given our finances (which, compared to similar journals, are in very good shape), CCLH would be bankrupt in 3 to 5 years, particularly given the decline in SSHRC grants due to the emergence of online journals. Athabasca University is positive and enthusiastic. They have made a concession to L/LT in that their policy with respect to journals is that they be strictly online and open access. Expenses at Athabasca are estimated at $40 000 per year. Royalties, copyright, SSHRC grants, and subscriptions will sustain this expense. The editor has signed a two year agreement (the basis of which will extend beyond two years, though the details may change): Athabasca will provide (unionized) printing and copyediting. There will be a new process for submissions, reviews, and editing, all of which will be done online. There will be a six month transition as work is moved from MUN to AU. It is unclear what the fee for service at MUN will be until the departure for AU in October--at worst, the $45 000/year will be pro-rated. Labour/Le Travail flyers prepared by Athabasca University Press were distributed at the meeting.

The spring 2007 issue of Labour/Le Travail is completed and at the printer, somewhat later than usual due to the circumstances outlined above. The next issue will be produced at Athabasca. Jeff Taylor and Alvin Finkel will provide assistance at Athabasca. If any contributors have difficulties regarding the new process, they should contact the editor, Bryan Palmer, at bpalmer@ trentu.ca.

CCLH book publications will be stocked, orders processed, and assistance with SSHRC applications will be provided by Athabasca. Fee for this service will be assessed on an ad hoc basis. This situation should not be problematic, as CCLH publications usually pay for themselves.

The decision to move to Athabasca was made with the advice and input of CCLH executive and the Labour/Le Travail editorial board. There is some sadness in leaving MUN, in light of a 26 year relationship that often has been good and productive.

A recent workshop of editors of international labour journals revealed that Labour/Le Travail has a good profile internationally. …
