International Indigenous Policy Journal: 2013New features developed in 2012
The year 2012 was an important one for the Journal. We introduced our new additions to our web-based activities with Facebook, Twitter, and other social media. We have continued to fine tune the website, and readers, authors, and reviewers have praised the efficient and effective system we have in place.In 2012, we had over 25,000 full-text downloads of articles published in the Journal.
We plan to continue building on our success in 2013 and have a goal of 40,000 active, full-text downloads of IIPJ. Our readership has continued to grow over 2012. We thank you for your interest and support.
In 2012, we published three regular editions of the Journal. We also published a special edition on water and Indigenous peoples. The number of submissions to the journal has risen dramatically.Looking ahead to 2013
We have under development a special edition on early parenting, which we will launch in February, as well we will putting out a call for papers on the burning issue of Governance of Indigenous Information in the 21st Century. More information will be posted in the next edition of the Journal.
We continue to offer authors exceptional service, including a turnaround of less than 60 days for new submissions and posting of accepted articles within very reasonable time frames.Indigenous Research Social Networking is coming!
Of very special interest is our development of IndigiLink. This social networking site will be launched this year and it will help Indigenous and non-Indigenous researchers, policy-makers, community leaders, and service providers find and work with each other. This worldwide, free service will facilitate the development of research groups, teams, conferences, advice forums, and the many other joint ventures you may need. More information will be posted in our next edition.All the best in 2013!
