AlterNative regularly publishes themed supplements or issues that span a specific topic or theme of international interest to, for or by indigenous peoples.
From 2011, these will be typically a collection of 5-8 articles, and around 50,000 words in total. We are actively commissioning themed supplements and if you have an idea of a topic and would like to take on the role of theme guest editor, consider submitting a proposal for consideration. Being a theme guest editor carries with it the responsibility of meeting all the issue deadlines, commissioning and collecting articles, as well as liaison with authors at all stages of the process, soliciting and collecting peer reviews, and providing assessments of each paper for the Editors of AlterNative. In return we offer a publication that highlights an indigenous topic, issue or group, distributed internationally and reviewed, edited and produced to international scholarly standards.
All proposals will be assessed for suitability, and please be aware that there are only a limited number of publication dates available.
If you are interested in becoming a guest editor of a themed supplement or issue, please first download the guidelines for theme guest editors (available below). We encourage that you also read about the themes of the journal if you are not already familiar with AlterNative. Then approach potential authors for their agreement, and complete a proposal form (also available below).
Submit this form to editors [at] alternative [dot] ac [dot] nz.
For any queries or more information, please contact Dr Dominic Andrae, on editors [at] alternative [dot] ac [dot] nz or (+64) 9 923 5371.
