The WINHEC: International Journal of Indigenous Education Scholarship was created to support Indigenous-led research and scholarly excellence in Indigenous education. The Journal is published by the University of Victoria, Victoria, BC. This journal publishes peer-reviewed Indigenous educational scholarship that are central to the lives of WINHEC Nations and members. The Journal recognises Indigenous knowledge as dynamic, and welcomes papers that critically analyse and address educational issues that impact or improve Indigenous people’s educational experience, engagement and enthusiasm for learning.

WINHEC: International Journal of Indigenous Education Scholarship welcomes all forms of scholarly writing and all methodologies. The Journal publishes articles in English but also welcomes submissions in Indigenous languages, as well as ones that have been previously published in an Indigenous language and are translated into English. The article will be developed from the author’s area(s) of expertise but should be written in accessible language in order to ensure the knowledge mobilization in the field of ILR.


The Peer Review Process

The WINHEC Journal is an international peer-reviewed publication. Every article that appears in the Journal is appraised by two peer reviewers. The peer review process is confidential and double-blind. Double-blind means the author’s identity is not revealed to the reviewers, and the reviewers name and affiliation are not revealed to the authors.
