Journal overview

Aims: Kōtuitui: New Zealand Journal of Social Sciences Online aims to showcase the increasing number of individual and collaborative research endeavours across the social sciences. The Māori name ‘Kōtuitui’ means ‘interweaving’, and reflects the interdisciplinary nature of the journal. Although it is of particular relevance to New Zealand, and its social research community, as a multidisciplinary social sciences journal, Kōtuitui covers subject matter of widespread relevance and interest to social researchers across the globe.

Scope of submissions: Kōtuitui publishes original research papers, review articles, short communications on topical issues. We encourage quality submissions addressing questions of pertinence to national policy and communities in the New Zealand context. International submissions of relevance to New Zealand are also welcome. The journal’s subject matter ranges across the social sciences. Kōtuitui also publishes special sections on matters of major New Zealand and international interest from time to time.
