Published jointly by the Council for the Advancement of Native Development Officers (CANDO) and Captus Press, the Journal of Aboriginal Economic Development (JAED) features academic articles, examples from economic practitioners, and book reviews. Published twice yearly, the Journal is a unique resource for anyone interested in Aboriginal community economic development.This call is for the next two issues (6.1 and 6.2). Issue 6.1 of JAED will be published in September 2007 in preparation for the CANDO14th Annual National Conference & AGM (Kamloops, British Columbia). Issue 6.2 will be published early in 2008.

Papers should relate to one of the following areas:

We invite papers and case studies from academics and practitioners that address these issues. Academic papers will be subject to the usual double-blind peer-review process. Please note that we are not just looking for academic papers; we are also looking for interviews, case studies, and other practitioner views and perspectives. Submissions from practitioners will be reviewed by the co-editors. We believe such submissions will be particularly valuable, and it is our objective to publish as many as possible, if not in this issue then in subsequent issues of the JAED and/or in CANDO N-Side News. We want to know what people are doing, what is working, what is not working, and why.

Academic and Practitioner papers (double spaced, 12 point font, and 1 inch margins) should not exceed 25 pages in length, including appendices. Length can vary – 1 to 25 pages. The preferred format style is APA.
