aboriginal policy studies


aboriginal policy studies is a new online, peer-reviewed and multidisciplinary journal that, on a bi-annual basis, publishes original, scholarly, and policy relevant research on issues relevant to Métis, non-status Indians and urban Aboriginal peoples in Canada. We encourage the submission of articles by and for a wide audience of scholars, researchers, community activists, and policymakers. Though focused on the Canadian milieu, we welcome comparative work from an international Indigenous context pertinent to Canadian readers. A similarly broad scope of methodological approaches is encouraged.

La revue Études des politiques des Autochtones est une publication en ligne pluridisciplinaire et évaluée par les pairs qui, deux fois par année, publie des recherches originales, érudites et relatives à la politique sur des sujets touchant les Métis, les Indiens non inscrits et les peuples autochtones vivants en milieu urbain au Canada. Nous invitons la soumission d’articles par et pour un vaste public d’érudits et d’érudites, de chercheurs et chercheuses, d’activistes communautaire et de décisionnaires. Bien que nous nous concentrions sur le milieu canadien, nous acceptons avec plaisir la proposition d’études comparatives provenant d’un contexte autochtone international et intéressantes pour le contexte canadien. Nous encourageons également un large éventail d’approches méthodologiques.
