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. The journal is also available at the following libraries :

  • National Library of Canada
  • University of British Columbia Library
  • Vancouver Public Library

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

Articles can be about anything and everything related to the outdoors or life in the VOC. They can be anywhere from 10 to ~2000 words long (if you go over by a bit, that shouldn't be a problem, but no 40-page epics please) and can take the form of a poem, song, list, dialogue, story or whatever else you can think of. Format should be Microsoft Word (.doc) or plain text (.TXT or .RTF). Please do not embed pictures, etc. in your article--this makes reformatting really annoying.

Photo submissions should be high quality (minimum resolution 720) 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. Please remember this when choosing which summit shot/picture of someone making a funny face in the car to send: guy in dark clothing+dark background+low lighting=a whole lot of blackness when converted to black and white=not ideal.

Illustrations, maps and recipes for yummy trail food are also happily accepted.

Note: all articles will be edited for length, spelling and general grammatical scariness. Horribly inappropriate content (angry personal attacks on your clubmates, racist/sexist/homophobic remarks, etc.) will not be printed.

Please send all submissions and questions to this year's editor

Deadline TBA

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