Atlantic Indigenous Mentorship Network
and Healthy Populations Journal
Special Issue on Indigenous Health and Health Equity
We are very excited to announce that we are partnering with the Healthy Populations Journal (HPJ) to facilitate a special issue on Indigenous health. This special issue is anticipated to be released in the Spring of 2023.
The Healthy Populations Journal (HPJ) is a multi-faculty, student-led, open-access, peer-reviewed journal housed at the Healthy Populations Institute (HPI) at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Their mission is to identify and disseminate research that mobilizes evidence to improve population health and global health equity.
For this partnership, we are adopting a mentorship model of peer review. Mentor reviewers with experience conducting peer-review will provide mentorship to student reviewers, enabling students to provide robust and thoughtful reviews for student submissions while building capacity for peer review.
We are accepting submissions for this special issue beginning March 4th, 2022. Visit here to access the submission portal and for more details regarding submission guidelines.
As part of this partnership, we are offering events targeted to support individuals who want to submit a piece of work to this special issue. We have two events confirmed right now, with more in the works, so stay tuned!
