Our aim is to build on a good, established reputation and to become one of the top international journals in social anthropology. We encourage submissions from social anthropologists without preference for any single region of the world. Furthermore we do not restrict ourselves to any particular theoretical tradition. As a bilingual journal we actively encourage submissions in both French and English from scholars throughout the world. All our full-length articles are refereed. We endeavour to ensure that the review process is completed within a three-month period, and we usually succeed, because we realize that authors need to be notified as soon as possible.
Full details concerning the submission of papers are to be found in our “Notes to Contributors”. Our style for references and bibliography is very similar to that used by publications of the American Anthropological Association. We encourage electronic submission of papers, and no longer require, indeed discourage, printed copies of submissions.
A typical issue of Anthropologica contains a thematic section or collection of papers on a topic of interest to many of our readers, between three and five volunteered papers on a variety of themes, one or more special features, such Ideas and Anthropological Reflections, book reviews and, from time to time, film reviews and reviews of museum exhibits. Anthropologica appears twice a year, usually in May and November.
The Ideas section was created by our former editor, Winnie Lem. It consists of a brief, position paper by a well-known scholar concerning a key concept in anthropology and the social sciences such as “community” and “the state” and short responses by other scholars to that paper.
Anthropological Reflections is a feature created by Jasmin Habib, a member of our editorial board, who states that, “We shall welcome autobiographical and autoethnographic pieces, photo-essays, poetry, travelogues and experimental writing. The point of our efforts is to broaden the scope of our anthropological writing, publishing and reception.”
