The Canadian Journal of Program Evaluation seeks to promote the theory and practice of program evaluation. To this end CJPE publishes full-length articles on all aspects of the theory and practice of evaluation and shorter Evaluation Practice Notes which share practical knowledge, experiences and lessons learned. A third section of the journal, Addressing Challenges in Evaluation Practice, presents real-life cases written by evaluation practitioners. The journal has a particular interest in articles reporting original empirical research on evaluation. CJPE is a completely bilingual journal, publishing in both English and French. Readership includes academics, practitioners and policymakers. CJPE attracts authors and readers internationally.
