AlterNative announces a general call for papers to be published in 2014
Deadline: 31st December 2013

AlterNative: An International Journal of Indigenous Peoples is a multidisciplinary, internationally peer-reviewed journal. It aims to present indigenous worldviews from native indigenous perspectives. It is dedicated to the analysis and dissemination of native indigenous knowledge that uniquely belongs to cultural, traditional, tribal and aboriginal peoples as well as first nations, from around the world.
AlterNative publishes papers that substantively address and critically engage with indigenous issues from a scholarly indigenous viewpoint. All papers must address and engage with current international and national literature and academic and/or indigenous theory and make a significant contribution to the field of indigenous studies.
Submissions responding to this general call for papers should relate to one or more of themes of the journal—origins, place, peoples, community, culture, history, heritage, colonialism, power, intervention, development and self-determination.
Submission and Deadline Details
AlterNative primarily accepts substantive articles (up to 7000 words) that address a particular indigenous topic or theme. We also publish short, timely commentaries which address a particular indigenous topic, theme, or contemporary issue affecting indigenous societies (up to 3000 words long) as well as book reviews of books that have been published in the preceding two years. Please visit our website for a list of books currently for review.
A sample article and author guidelines, including format and referencing styles, for submitting articles can be found on the AlterNative website.
We welcome submissions throughout the year but early submission is recommended.
