In addition to general papers, the Journal of Indigenous Wellbeing also publishes other works including commentaries, knowledge transfer articles, creative works, editorials, book reviews, extended abstracts, research briefs and paper reviews. For more information regarding submission in these areas please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The guidelines here will help you to develop an article for submission. For further detail please see our Submission Guidelines. Once the editors review your article and decide that it is within the realm of the Te Mauri: Pimatisiwin, the paper is sent out for peer review. If you have any questions about the format and structure of your article, please contact us. Articles should be addressed to the Managing Editor at email@example.com
Articles will be sent out to at least one academic reviewer and one community reviewer. Reviewers are selected on the basis of their knowledge in the research and health area, with expertise in the topic of the submitted article.
The Journal of Indigenous Wellbeing follows a blind peer-review process. Authors suggest reviewers, whom the Journal contact and invite to peer-review manuscripts. All identifying information is removed from manuscripts prior to sending them to reviewers and all identifying information is removed from reviews before being sent to authors.
Articles are edited for clarity, grammar, punctuation, spelling and proper citation. The Copy Editor may contact the author for clarification.
The edited article is then sent back to the author to confirm that meanings have not been changed in the copy editing process. This is also a chance for the author to verify details such as the accuracy of references, name spelling, data in tables, and that picture captions are with the right picture.
Shortly after the author returns the verified article, it will be scheduled for publication.
The web-based publication will be available twice a year. Submissions are accepted year-round however timing of a submission may influence which issue an article is scheduled within.
