Its looking great Les. I am impressed by the fact that there is such a wide range of topics covered and that they are not all limited to only one discipline. I am even more impressed to hear that there were over 14,000 hits on the site for the month of April. Well done!

The articles that are featured in Mai Review are extremely relevant to the students here at our organisation, especially those that relate to Maori education. On behalf of our students I wish to express appreciation in having free access to Mai Review and to having permission to download selected articles which are made available for reference in the library collection.

Kia ora. Congratulations on the MAI review 2007 a fantastic array of writing that is certainly inspiring to those of us yet to contribute.
Cheryl Stephens, Te Wananga o Awanuiarangi

just wanted to say how much I really enjoyed your article entitled "Ask the Professor about...Good academic writing". I have waited along time for someone to write about research in a way that speaks to me in a language we can all understand. Is there such thing as a research vernacular?? It's been long overdue Id say. Amazing what 2 pages of succinct, clear and concise writing can achieve. It certainly has encouraged me to study these two pages them and consider how I can write even better. Kia ora ra,

Aloha kaua e Alison Jones, My name is Konia Freitas and I am faculty at the Kamakakuokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa. I've read your article entitled, "Ask the Professor about...Good Academic Writing" in the on-line version of the MAI review 2006, Issue 1. Here at the Center, we are organizing a series of workshops for our undergraduate and graduate students. I am writing to ask your permission to use your two page article listed above as a hand in our writing workshop. Prof.Jon Osorio and Prof. Kanalu Young will be leading the workshops, thus, introducing your piece to our students. We have found it to be clear, concise and to the point. Me ka mahalo 'oia'i'o.

Aloha, I sincerely wish to support your effort because it, in turn, supports all of us working in the area of indigenous research. Even though we have time, everything seems to happen at once perpetually!

Congratulations on the launch of MAI Review. I can only guess how much work it has taken. The web site has a classic and classy look about it
John Sullivan, University of Otago

The MAI Review website is an excellent initiative. It is an accessible website that has a variety of articles of interest for me both professionally and personally. The site is simple to navigate and find information. The fact that the Review is online means that it is a cost effective way to disseminate the knowledge being generated by both the MAI programme and Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga. I am also pleased that the Review allows for researchers at all levels to submit and have their information disseminated.

Congratulations - what an undertaking! Well done.
