Acadiensis: Journal of the History of the Atlantic Region (fr: Acadiensis: Revue d'histoire de la région Atlantique) is a semi-annual peer-reviewed academic journal covering the history of Atlantic Canada. The current editors-in-chief are Suzanne Morton (McGill University) and Donald Wright (University of New Brunswick). It is published by the Department of History at the University of New Brunswick, with articles in either English or French. The name Acadiensis originated with an earlier periodical with the same name, a general interest quarterly magazine for the Maritime provinces, with an emphasis on local history. It was published in Saint John, New Brunswick by David Russell Jack from 1901 to 1908 but failed due to insufficient financial support.

Acadiensis was awarded the Clio Prize of the Canadian Historical Association in 1979 for its promotion of regional history. The journal has sponsored the biennial Atlantic Canada Studies Conference since 1974 and awards an annual David Alexander Prize for the best undergraduate essay on Atlantic Canada history. A weekly blog, edited by Corey Slumkoski (Mount Saint Vincent University), publishes current commentaries. A related organization, Acadiensis Press, was established in 1980 to publish books, mainly scholarly editions of documents and thematic collections of essays.
