IBAPA is a peer reviewed academic journal that publishes articles in the fields of Indigenous business and public administration. Our mission is to promote scholarship which advances our understanding of the creation and management of Indigenous (Native American, First Nation, Maori, Aboriginal) organizations with the intent of enhancing economic development in these communities.
Although our primary audience is the academic community, IBAPA encourages scholarly contributions which have the potential to directly impact practitioners, students, and leaders in the Indigenous private and public sectors, as well. We encourage contributions from multiple academic fields including, but not limited to: business, entrepreneurship, economics, public policy, and the social sciences. Empirical, qualitative, and theory-building studies are all encouraged.
In addition to original research articles, IBAPA also encourages contributions that highlight best practices from Indigenous organizations as well as pedagogical contributions that focus on best teaching practices for students studying Indigenous business and public administration.
We also seek to decolonize the academic space. It is important for Indigenous scholars to communicate in a manner that is culturally acceptable and effective for their own people. As such, IBAPA encourages a conversational tone with authors who are comfortable writing in such a manner.
Conceptualizing Scholarship around Indigenous Business and Public Administration
Indigenous Business & Public Administration (IBAPA) will publish a special issue of the journal on the subject of conceptualizing scholarship in the domain of Indigenous business and public administration.
