Author Guidelines

Indigenous Policy Journal (IPJ) publishes articles, commentary, reviews, news, and announcements concerning Native American and international Indigenous affairs, issues, events, nations, groups and media. We invite commentary and dialogue in and between issues: if you are interested in contributing to the journal, please take the time to create a user account on our website and see our Submission Guidelines.

Articles: As IPJ is now a refereed journal, articles may be posted on a different schedule from the rest of the journal. We will send out an e-mail announcement when the next set of articles are posted, and can be downloaded as a pdf file.

We welcome any discipline-appropriate citation format, but we request that you do not use automated footnotes or endnotes as they do not always translate for accessibility.

Please be aware that both refereed and non-refereed submissions will be visually re-formatted in order to fit the journal's format.

 

Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  1. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  2. The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, RTF, or WordPerfect document file format.
  3. Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  4. The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end. Alternatively, these elements may be submitted separately from the manuscript, with references along the text.
  5. The text adheres to any stylistic and bibliographic standard appropriate to the author's discipline.
