Download Notes to Contributors

Our aim is to build on our already well-established reputation for publishing and to become one of the top international journals in social and cultural anthropology. We encourage submissions from anthropologists without preference for any single region of the world. We do not restrict ourselves to any particular theoretical tradition. As a bilingual journal, we actively encourage submissions in both French and English from around the world.

A typical issue of Anthropologica contains a thematic section 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, Anthropological Reflections, and Practitioner’s Corner, book reviews and, from time to time, film reviews and reviews of museum exhibits.

The Ideas section was created by past-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. Normally Ideas are between 3500 and 5000 words in length.

Anthropological Reflections is a feature created by Jasmin Habib that invites anthropologists to reflect on their experiences in the field in autobiographical and auto-ethnographic pieces, photo-essays, poetry, travelogues, exchanges with interlocutors, experimental writing, etc. The point of our efforts is to broaden the scope of our anthropological writing, publishing and reception.

Practitioner’s Corner is the newest feature of the journal which invites anthropologists working outside of academia to share their experiences in their practice as public servants, human rights advocates, museum curators, NGO and INGO workers, lawyers, social workers, teachers, etc. These submissions are between 3500 to 5000 words in length.

ALL article submissions submitted to Anthropologica undergo double-blind review, including special features. Book Reviews are subject to review by the Anglophone and Francophone Book Review Editors as well as the Anglophone and Francophone Editors.

Our style for references and bibliography generally follows the Chicago Style with Canadian spelling.

Anthropologica appears twice a year, usually in Spring and Fall.
