INDIGENOUS POLICY PLANS FOR 2009-10 – WE INVITE YOUR HELP AND INPUT
We hope that you are having a fine spring. This journal is available on the web with e-mail notification of new issues at no charge. Indigenous Policy puts out two regular issues a year (Spring and Fall), and beginning summer 2006, a summer issue serving as the Proceedings of the Western Social Science Association Meeting American Indian Studies Section. We are seeking additional editors, columnists and commentators for regular issues, and editors or editorial groups for special issues, and short articles for each issue.
Jeff Corntassel and colleagues put together a special winter 2002 issue with a focus on “federal recognition and Indian Sovereignty at the turn of the century.” We had a special issue on international indigenous affairs summer 2004. We invite short articles, reports, announcements and reviews of meetings, media and media, programs and events, and short reports of news, commentary and exchange of views, as well as willingness to put together special issues.
Send us your thoughts and queries about issues and interests and replies can be printed in the next issue and/or made by e-mail. In addition, we will carry ISN news and business so that these pages can be a source of ISN communication and dialoguing in addition to circular letters and annual meetings at APSA. In addition to being the newsletter/journal of the Indigenous Studies Network, we collaborate with the Native American Studies Section of the Western Social Science Association (WSSA) and provide a dialoguing vehicle for all our readers. This is your publication. Please let us know if you would like to see more, additional, different, or less coverage of certain topics, or a different approach or format.
IPJ is now a refereed journal. Submissions of articles should go to Phil Bellfy. firstname.lastname@example.org, who will send them out for review. Our process is for non-article submissions to go to Steve Sachs, who drafts each regular issue. Unsigned items are by Steve. Paula Mohan, Phil Bellfy, Ignacio Ochoa and Michael Posluns then make editing suggestions to Steve. Phil puts this Journal on the web,
GUIDE TO SUBMITTING WRITINGS TO IPJ
We most welcome submissions of articles, commentary, news, media notes and announcements in some way relating to American Indian or international indigenous policy issues, broadly defined. Please send article submissions electronically attached to E-mail to Phil Bellfy, email@example.com, who will send them out for review. All non-article submissions go via e-mail to Steve Sachs: firstname.lastname@example.org, or on disk, at: 1916 San Pedro, NE, Albuquerque, NM, 87110. If you send writings in Word format, we know we can work with them. We can translate some, but not all other formats into word. If you have notes in your submission, please put them in manually, as end notes as part of the text. Do not use an automated foot/end note system that numbers the notes as you go and put them in a footer. (such automated notes are often lost, and if not, may appear elsewhere in the journal, and not in your article, as several writings are posted together in the same file. The one exception is the Proceedings of the AIS section at the WSSA meeting, in summer issues, where each article is kept in its own file, and it is O.K to use an automated note system. If you use any tables in a submission, please send a separate file(s) for them, as it is impossible to work with them to put on the web when they are an integral part of a Word text. Some other format/style things are helpful to us, and appreciated, but not an absolute requirement. As we publish in 12 point Times font, with single spacing, and a space between paragraphs, it saves us work if we receive writings that way. Many thanks. We look forward to seeing what you send us.
