Indigenous Digital and Data Sovereignty

In December of this year, the second 2018 special edition of the Journal of indigenous Wellbeing: Te Mauri – Pimatisiwin centered around digital and data sovereignty for Indigenous people will be released.  The Editorial Team of the Journal strongly encourages all indigenous researchers and communities to share the work they are doing in this area.  The use of data by businesses, organisations, and governments is currently a huge area of exploration and equally an important area of debate. Included among the opportunities this special edition provides is an avenue for indigenous people to share their perspective, to highlight areas needing to be addressed, and examples of how indigenous people can use data for the benefit of their people.  

The Journal of Indigenous Wellbeing is a peer-reviewed, open-access, scholarly online journal that shares multi-disciplinary indigenous knowledge and research experience amongst indigenous health professionals, leaders, researchers, and community members.  Visit the Journal website today to learn how to submit an article for consideration. 

If you have any queries, please email the journal team jiw@teraumatatini.com.

EDITED: 29.03.2018
