The Canadian Journal of Hospital Pharmacy

The Canadian Journal of Hospital Pharmacy (ISSN: 1920-2903) is available electronically at!

CSHP members and subscribers to the Canadian Journal of Hospital Pharmacy (CJHP) have made it clear that an easy-to-use, fully searchable, electronic version of the CJHP is important to them. The CJHP website uses Open Journal Systems (OJS) software to bring you each issue in a clear, readable electronic format.

The intuitive OJS platform offers full searching of the CJHP archives that are available to date (currently, the CJHP online has a complete archive of issues from 2000 to present).

The online version of the CJHP ( was introduced in 2009.


  • Full text of all CJHP articles, with the exception of the Editorial, Point Counterpoint, and Executive Commentary sections, are open access beginning 6 months after publication (a pay per-view system for embargoed articles is in place). CSHP members will continue to have free, immediate access to the CJHP, one of the many benefits of CSHP membership.

  • Authors who wish to have their articles immediately open access can do so by paying a $100 fee to forgo the embargo period. Simply complete the CSHP Authorship Fee Form

  • In 2015, we moved to an online only version of the CJHP and introduced the institutional online subscription tier system option in 2017. More details with rates are available here   .

All users will need to register to use the OJS system using the "Register" link in the top menu bar.
