The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s (2015) Report, Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future, attests to the practices of cultural genocide that characterized the residential school experience for many of the Aboriginal children who were removed from their homes and sent to residential schools across the country. The history, legacy and policy context of the residential school era is well documented in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Report. The reader is privy to the activities of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission as they evolved and were implemented throughout the country, as well as to the various detailed calls to action that serve as an outcome of the Report. It provides a comprehensive picture of the realities, turmoil, and harsh consequences that were a product of imperial policies meant to assimilate Aboriginal children and communities. One cannot help but be curious, however, about the extent to which the general public will embrace the calls to action set out in the Report since it was not the general public that brought the issue of residential schools to the public agenda to begin with. This is not to suggest that the response on the part of mainstream Canadians will be less than acceptable; instead, it serves to inquire about the ways the general public will frame their responses in light of what they value.

For a peer-reviewed journal, the publication of articles plays an essential role in the development of a coherent network of knowledge. It is, therefore, essential that all publishers, editors, authors, and reviewers, in the process of publishing the journals, conduct themselves in accordance with the highest level of professional ethics and standards. The publisher is dedicated to supporting the vast efforts of the editors, the academic contributions of authors, and the respected volunteer work undertaken by reviewers. The publisher is also responsible for ensuring that the publication system works smoothly, and that ethical guidelines are applied to assist the editor, author, and reviewer in performing their ethical duties.
The editor has the following responsibilities:
1.The editor should acknowledge receipt of submitted manuscripts within two working days of receipt and ensure an efficient, fair, and timely review process.
2.The editor should ensure that submitted manuscripts are processed in a confidential manner, and that no content of the manuscripts will be disclosed to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, and the publisher, as appropriate.
3.The editor should recuse himself or herself from processing manuscripts if he or she has any conflict of interest with any of the authors or institutions related to the manuscripts.
4.The editor should not disclose the names and other details of the reviewers to a third party without the permission of the reviewers.
5.The editor has the right to make the final decision on whether to accept or reject a manuscript with reference to the significance, originality, and clarity of the manuscript and its relevance to the journal.
6.The editor should by no means make any effort to oblige the authors to cite his or her journal either as an implied or explicit condition of accepting their manuscripts for publication.
7.The editor should not use for his or her own research any part of any data or work reported in submitted and as yet unpublished articles.
8.The editor should respond promptly and take reasonable measures when an ethical complaint occurs concerning a submitted manuscript or a published paper, and the editor should immediately contact and consult with the author. In this case, a written formal retraction or correction may also be required.
