Australian Aboriginal Studies (AAS) is inviting papers for coming issues.

AAS is a quality multidisciplinary journal that exemplifies the vision where the world’s Indigenous knowledge and cultures are recognised, respected and valued. AAS encourages contributions that articulate the ways in which research approaches and methodologies are underpinned by ethical decision-making. Please refer to the Guidelines for Ethical Research.

Since 1983 AAS has published interdisciplinary research in Australian Indigenous studies with a focus on the humanities and social sciences. It is published twice a year for a wide audience in a plain English style and visual content is encouraged. Each edition includes a thought-provoking article by a leading Indigenous thinker about the importance of Indigenous knowledge to wellbeing, as well as Indigenous ways of living in and engaging with the world.

AAS publishes blind peer-reviewed articles, book reviews and review essays that contribute to a transformative discourse about indigeneity, both within the Academy and within Indigenous communities. New voices are encouraged to contribute to the conversations.

AAS is published (in print) by the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS). With direction and support from a distinguished editorial board, it contributes to the Institute’s work of building pathways to share and grow Indigenous knowledge.

AAS is abstracted in the following databases: AIATSIS Indigenous Studies Bibliography, Informit APAFT (Australian Public Affairs Full Text) database and Indigenous Collection, EBSCO Academic Search Complete and Australia/New Zealand Reference Centre and ProQuest. It is also comprehensively indexed with full text in the Informit APAFT database and Indigenous Collection, EBSCO Academic Search Complete and Australia/New Zealand Reference Centre databases and ProQuest.

Early submissions will be given preference in the case of review and publication process.
