Aim and Scope
Student Anthropologist (SA) is the flagship peer-reviewed journal of the National Association of Student Anthropologists (the largest organization of anthropologist students in the world). It is an annual digital publication. Students from all levels and disciplines are encouraged to contribute.
With each issue, Student Anthropologist will explore thematic areas and new directions in anthropology from the perspective of the best young anthropologists. We seek a plurality of voices from all subfields in each issue. Student Anthropologist welcomes not only original research addressing anthropological issues and problems but also submissions that explore how anthropological skills, ideas, and ethnography can have an impact on contemporary social issues.
Deadline: April 15, 2012
We seek scholarly submissions from undergraduate and graduate students worldwide, in particular those emphasizing anthropology’s capacity to shape public issues, social problems, and global realities. These submissions should contain original research.
The two types of submissions accepted include:
1. Scholarly articles: under 4,000 words in length, subject to a peer review process.
2. Commentary submissions: opinion or theory pieces that are the original work of the author. Commentary submissions might include such mediums as written pieces (approx. 1,000 words in length), photo essays (10 photos + 1,000 words of commentary in length) and videos/YouTube© clips (10-minute maximum in duration + 1,000 words of commentary in length).
Any student currently enrolled in a BA, MA, or PhD program is welcome to submit original research to be considered for publication. While this is an anthropology journal, students do not need to be enrolled in an anthropology program.
All submissions should be sent as attachments and saved in Microsoft Office Word (.doc or .docx) or Mac Pages (.pages) format and conform to AAA style (http://www.aaanet.org/publications/style_guide.pdf). Submissions should be double spaced and adhere to the word limits outlined in this CFP. Rarely, we consider longer submissions or those of an irregular nature. Manuscripts should include a 200 word abstract.
Send submissions, as well as any questions, to email@example.com
Student Anthropologist is pleased to announce the introduction of a regular book review section. Beginning with our next issue, Student Anthropologist will feature a selection of reviews of recently published work (last five years).
Student Anthropologist is interested in three types of book reviews:
We request that you summarize the text and offer substantive commentary on the quality of the theory, methodology, writing style, relevance, innovation, connection to other published work, and pedagogical value. Please avoid lengthy quotations and minimize outside references. We will accept reviews of non-English books. Manuscripts should not be longer than 1,000 words. Authors will be provided copies of books to be reviewed through the generous support of the Department of Anthropology at Brandeis University.
If you are interested in writing a book review please contact the Student Anthropologist Editor, Jessica Hardin and Fabienne Labbe, SA Book Review Editor (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a brief description of why you are an appropriate reviewer and the text you wish to review. The Editors will also contact students directly inviting them to contribute a book review.
Publishers are invited to send review copies to the address below. The Student Anthropologist editor would also consider suggestions for works to be reviewed in future issues.
