The JIHR is a peer-reviewed journal which welcomes contributions from any author. Priority however, may be given to an author of Indigenous ancestry/background, should manuscripts of comparable quality be available. First consideration will be given to innovative articles covering areas identified as HIV/AIDS research-intensive which demonstrates the use of community-based research (CBR) methods and/or philosophy.

Articles published in the JIHR are directed toward several audiences. The primary audience is Indigenous HIV/AIDS service organizations and Indigenous people living with HIV and AIDS (IPHAs). The JIHR secondary audiences include community leaders, policy and decision- makers, and anyone with an interest in HIV/AIDS, particularly within Indigenous populations and communities.

Published annually by CAAN/AHA Centre since 2006
Articles go through a double-blinded peer review process
