(Native Teaching & Helping)

The Board of the Native Social Work Journal, a scholarly and community based publication, is pleased to announce a Call for Papers for Volume 8 of the Native Social Work Journal. The focus for this issue is “Indigenous Social Work Practices and Theories”.

This edition of the journal recognizes that many Aboriginal and Indigenous practitioners, teachers and researchers are engaging in Indigenous practices that draw from Indigenous worldviews and which have been incorporated as best practice models in their various fields. Likewise, there is a revitalization of Indigenous theories that reflect Indigenous worldviews and contemporary contexts. It is therefore timely to invite writers to share their experiences, research and expertise in the area of Indigenous practices and theories.

Authors must submit their articles under the A.P.A. (American Psychological Association) style format. Please follow manual guidelines. Articles should normally be no longer than 5000 words, 20 pages. Papers accepted for publication will have copyright assigned to the Native Social Work Journal; articles previously published or under current consideration for publication elsewhere shall not be considered for publication. Please provide an abstract, double space all material and submit four copies for consideration as well as a memory stick copy using MS Word. An email version may also be requested.

The Native Social Work Journal utilizes a peer reviewed process in the selection of articles and is a registered member of the Canadian Association of Learned Journals.

Deadline date for submission of articles is July 31st, 2011.
