Author Guidelines

I. TYPES OF ARTICLES

a) Research articles are comprehensive descriptions of original research and include author's own ethnographic study and/or a theoretical survey of a topic, critical evaluation of existing literature, new insights and arguments, a detailed presentation of results with discussion and conclusion. The editors welcome full-length articles up to 10,000 words. Research articles are peer-reviewed. Reviewers' comments are passed on anonymously to the authors. Final responsibility for acceptance rests with the editorial board.

b) Review articles provide a critical and constructive analysis of existing published literature in a field, through summary, analysis, and comparison, often identifying specific gaps or problems and providing recommendations for future research. Review articles include literature reviews, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses. Typically they should not exceed 10,000 words and are subject to peer review.

c) Perspective articles are scholarly reviews of fundamental concepts or prevalent ideas in a field. These are usually essays that present a personal point of view critiquing widespread notions pertaining to a field. A perspective piece can be a review of a single concept or a few related concepts, and are subject to peer review. They should typically not exceed 5,000 words.

d) Short reports are original articles from various anthropological fields that do not include a detailed theoretical discussion. Their aim is to acquaint readers with preliminary or partial results of research. They should not exceed 3,000 words. Brief notes are subject to peer review.
