The International Journal of Indigenous Health is published bi-annually by the Aboriginal Health Research Networks Secretariat (AHRNetS) at the University of Victoria. This peer-reviewed, online, open-access Journal was established to advance knowledge and understanding to improve Indigenous health. The Journal seeks to bring knowledge from diverse intellectual traditions together with a focus on culturally diverse Indigenous voices, methodologies and epistemology.
The International Journal of Indigenous Health (IJIH) was re-named from its original name to reflect its growing international readership: it has been known as the National Aboriginal Health Organization (NAHO) Journal of Aboriginal Health from 2004-2012. NAHO transferred the Journal to AHRNetS at the University of Victoria in 2012.
Volume 9(1) was released in December 2012 by NAHO. Volume 9(2) a Special Issue in Inuit Health published by NAHO Inuit Tuttarvingat and NASIVVIK Centre for Inuit Health and Changing Environments, Network Environments for Aboriginal Health Research, will be available on the IJIH website once released. Volume 9(1) is available on the IJIH homepage. Past editions of the Journal are available for download in PDF under Archives on top menu bar.
Submissions are currently being accepted for Volume 10(1) of the International Journal of Indigenous Health: Deadline is December 15, 2013. Please see the Call for Papers for more information.
