The VOC Journal has been published annually by the club since 1958. A free copy of the journal is provided to members at the end of the academic year. A complete collection is available in the VOC clubroom or online here. The journal is also available at the following libraries :

  • National Library of Canada
  • University of British Columbia Library
  • Vancouver Public Library
  • Alpine Club of Canada (Canmore)

Specific details of interest to the club exec on how/who to send the journal to each year is available on the VOCJ exchange page.

The International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) for the VOC Journal is 0524-5613.

Submission Guidelines

Do:

  • Read past journals for inspiration and to get an idea of how an article is formatted.
  • Keep things relatively short. Articles should not go far over 2000 words (as a rough guide, you can fit about 350 words on a page of the journal).
  • Be creative. Submissions can be about anything and everything related to the outdoors, and can come in any style you desire (prose, poetry, song, art, etc.)
  • Send photos along with your article.
  • Submit high-quality photos. Colour shots should have a resolution of about 720dpi and be large enough to fill a 5.5 x 8.5 inch space. Black and white shots can be as low as 150dpi, but they should have enough contrast that the subject is visible: a guy in dark clothing + a dark background + low lighting = a whole lot of blackness when converted to black and white = not ideal.
  • Edit.

Don't:

  • Be offensive. Any angry personal attacks on your clubmates, racist/sexist/homophobic remarks, etc. will not be printed, and your article may be rejected altogether.
  • Embed images in your article. A page of text in the journal will not be the same size or have the same format as your Word document, so you are not doing the editor any favours by forcing them to pull everything back out of your article and rearrange it. Please submit your photos as separate files.
  • Write your entire article in the passive voice. Although "it was decided that the south ridge should be climbed" may work in a lab report, it makes for rather dull reading.

Formatting

Articles should be written in Microsoft Word (.DOC or .DOCX) or plain text (.TXT or .RTF). They should not contain any embedded images or files.

Photo submissions should be high quality (minimum resolution 720dpi for colour, 150dpi for b&w) and in .JPEG or .TIFF format. There will be room for 10-30 colour photos, plus the front and back covers. All photos accompanying articles will be printed in black and white.

Note: all articles will be edited for length, spelling and general grammatical scariness. Offensive remarks will not be printed.

Deadlines

All trip reports for the Journal are due on or before January 15th each year. Articles should be related to trips that happened over the previous year from January to December. Other articles relating to club life, or poetry or even lyrical compositions are also welcome and encouraged! Early submissions are highly recommended for high quality proofreading and editing from the editors. Submit your articles and ask your questions to: [email protected]

And remember: submitting an article to the VOCJ counts as a workhike, and it's never too late to start working on one....

Note: In the numbers columns, when a + appears beside a number, that means that one book from that location is being moved to another location (indicated by the - symbol). For example, 40++ in the clubroom and 3-- at Burton indicates that 40 books are at the clubroom, 2 books are in transit to Burton Hut and 1 Book is currently at Burton. When the books reach their destination the symbols can be removed.

Note: Three completion statuses for the Index column, Incomplete, Tagged, Indexed

VOC Newsletter

Before the VOCJ, the club published the "VOC Newsletter". It's like the VOCJ, without the fancy paperback format. PDFs copies will soon be available online...
