Indigenous Social Work Journal

Description: 

Launched in 1997, the Indigenous Social Work Journal (formerly the Native Social Work Journal) is a scholarly and community-based publication committed to the preservation, revitalization and promotion of the expanding field of Indigenous social work knowledge, theories and practices. Both academic and community-based researchers and practitioners have contributed articles representative of their communities, their research and frameworks for best practice with Indigenous, Aboriginal, First Nations, Metis and Inuit groups as well as other International Indigenous groups. This journal aims to increase the volume and dissemination of mainly Indigenous authorship and to increase the accessibility of Indigenous social work scholarship. This journal provides tools for practitioners, academics, social workers, communities and others engaged in Indigenous social work activities.  As well, Laurentian University, Sudbury, Ontario where the Board of the Journal of Indigenous Social Development (JISD) and its members are based, has a repository for all the Indigenous social work journals both print-based and online.
