The Canadian Society of Soil Science sponsored the first edition of Soil Sampling and Methods of Analysis (Lewis Publishers, CRC Press, 1993), the updated second edition of the same book (published by CRC Press and Taylor & Francis Group, 2008), and promoted the publication of the popular reference book Soil and Environmental Science Dictionary (CRC Press, 2001).
Digging Into Canadian Soils: An Introduction to Soil Science
Written entirely by members of the CSSS, Digging into Canadian Soils: An Introduction to Soil Science is an open access textbook that provides an introduction to the core disciplines of soil science, and introduces the concepts and vocabulary needed by students just beginning their soil science journey. The textbook provides supplementary materials that are specific to regions in Canada, or may be of specific interest beyond what might be considered introductory soil science material. Importantly, the textbook also is intended to introduce students to the Canadian System of Soil Classification by providing examples from across the length and breadth of the world’s second largest country, and to the Canadian Society of Soil Science, whose members share a common passion for soil science and are keen to share and instill this passion with students across Canada.
The Canadian Journal of Soil Science
The Canadian Journal of Soil Science (CJSS) is published quarterly by Canadian Science Publishing (CSP), and is the official technical publication of the Society. It is recognized internationally and contains approximately 70 papers and 800 pages annually. Submitted manuscripts undergo peer review prior to publication, and members of the Society are invited to participate in this process. Members are offered a half-price subscription, enjoy a liberal copyright policy with their papers, and open access fees at $750 CDN!.
CSP is Canada’s not-for-profit leader in mobilizing science, making it easy to discover, use, and share. Please consider supporting not-for-profit publishing and consider the Canadian Journal of Soil Science as home for your research, including review papers, commentaries, and short pieces. Together, we can make CJSS a strong journal and a valuable source of education and information in the field of Soil Science in Canada and abroad!
