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.  MAI Journal publishes two issues per year, June and December.  MAI Journal is only published online. 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.

This journal has evolved from MAI Review and complements AlterNative: An International Journal of Indigenous Peoples. We welcome submissions all year round!

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 academics and 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. We are proud to publish in both te reo Māori and English. 

You can engage with the MAI Journal online community via its Facebook page, and find out more about submitting a paper to the journal here.

MAI Journal is supported by Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM), New Zealand's Māori Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE) which is a non-profit organisation funded by the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) and hosted by The University of Auckland.
