Aims: Kōtuitui aims to showcase the increasing number of collaborative research endeavours across the social sciences. Although of particular relevance to New Zealand, the journal’s subject matter is of worldwide relevance and interest to researchers in universities, research institutes, and other centres. The Māori name ‘Kōtuitui’ means ‘interweaving’, and reflects the interdisciplinary nature of the journal.

Scope of submissions: Kōtuitui publishes original research papers and book reviews. We welcome submissions from across the social sciences and we encourage submissions from authors addressing questions of relevance to national policy and communities and wanting to reach a broad social science audience. Although the journal highlights research in the New Zealand context, international submissions of relevance to New Zealand are welcome. The journal’s subject matter includes: sociology, political science, anthropology, human geography, demographics and statistics, education, health, public policy, welfare, social work, families and parenting, children and young people, ethnicity, gender studies, cultural studies, discrimination, refugees and immigration. The journal has a particular strength in issues relating to Māori and Pacific peoples, and in research that seeks to bridge the policy-community-scholarly divides.
