When an article is received by AlterNative, we first assess its general suitability for publication against the themes and ethos of the journal and, if successful, the article is submitted for peer review.
All peer reviewers are asked to address the following questions:
1. Most importantly, does the article present fresh perspectives or new insights or analyses on questions of current interest in the field of indigenous scholarship?
2. AlterNative seeks to build bridges between the academic study of indigenous affairs and theory and practical or empirical issues in the modern world. Assess how successfully the article links theory and practice in a way that sheds light on the present state of indigenous theory, thinking and practice, and makes sense out of concrete issues, whether they are local, national or global levels.
3. Please make a critical, but constructive evaluation of the manuscript, and provide informative comments to the authors that point them in the right direction.
Further guidelines and evaluation forms are provided to all reviewers, and we aks that all reviews are returned to the editorial office within a given timeframe (usually less than 4 weeks).
