Non-technical, indigenous journal solicits manuscripts

By C. Brandon Chapman, College of Education

PULLMAN, Wash. – A native education group at Washington State University is issuing a call for manuscripts for the new Journal of Mestizo and Indigenous Voices, the first online journal for the College of Education’s Center for Mestizo and Indigenous Research and Engagement.

It’s the second publication for the center, which earlier released its first Issues and Policy Brief. This journal will be a tad different, though.

“We want to use this as a vehicle to ‘translate’ academic research findings into brief, easy-to-understand synopses for the non-academic audiences,” said Brian McNeill, center co-director.  “This is important information, and writing it in non-technical language to share with the communities we serve is important.”

He encourages anyone to submit articles about indigenous or Mestizo populations, especially concerning the areas of psychology, education, cultural and ethnic studies and healthcare.

McNeill said the center’s objectives of strong research, service and outreach – in this case to the Latino/Mestizo and indigenous communities – is consistent with WSU’s land-grant mission.

“I’m very excited to have this journal fill a special niche,” he said. “I think it will show that we’re committed to helping the Mestizo and indigenous communities we serve.”
