MAI Journal is an open access journal that publishes multidisciplinary peer-reviewed articles that critically analyse and address indigenous and Pacific issues in the context of Aotearoa New Zealand. We aim to publish scholarly articles that substantively engage with intellectual indigenous scholarship. MAI Journal reflects developments in the vision and mission of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga, within the landscape of indigenous research in Aotearoa New Zealand, and builds on the legacy of MAI Review.
MAI Journal recognises that indigenous knowledge is dynamic, and welcomes papers that critically analyse and address all indigenous issues in the context of Aotearoa New Zealand. We have an enthusiastic Editorial Board that is composed of highly respected academic/researchers in indigenous research from a wide range of disciplines. Our Editorial office is committed to MAI Journal and its unique positioning with regard to its wider definition of scholarship, extending beyond that of the standard Western academic knowledge.
