Advances in Anthropology


Advances in Anthropology (AA) is an international peer reviewed journal dedicated to reporting on the latest advances in anthropology and related disciplines. The goal of this journal is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians worldwide to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and perspectives in diverse areas of anthropology and to keep a record of the newest methodological and theoretical developments in the discipline.

Historical Anthropology: compound umbrella term (history from Greek iστορiα, historia, for inquiry, knowledge gained through investigation; and anthropology from Greek anthrōpos (ανθρωποc), for human being, meaning humankind/humanity, and -λογια, -logia, for study). Here understood as modern definition of Science of History based on a comprehensive concept of culture, going back not only to earliest forms of writing (written history), including prehistory for sources and events prior to written records, and using inter/trans disciplinary testable, repeatable, observable, and falsifiable methods of various academic disciplines with the general aim to explain how the study of the past specifically relates to humans.

All submitted manuscripts should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere or at any time during AA's review period. Manuscripts must be prepared in English and will be subject to a rigorous and fair peer‐review process. Generally, accepted papers will appear online within 3 weeks followed by printed hard copy. The journal publishes original papers including, but not limited to, the following subfields of anthropology:

· Anthropometry and anthroposcopy · Bioarchaeology · Cultural anthropology · DNA genealogy · Educational anthropology · Ethnography · Forensic anthropology · Historical archaeology · Human ecology and adaptation · Human epigenetics and epigenomics · Human genetics and genomics · Human origins and evolution · Medical anthropology · Molecular anthropology · Paleoanthropology · Psychological anthropology · Social anthropology

We are also interested in: 1) Short Reports - 2 to 5 page papers that report on preliminary research results; 2) Book Reviews - comments and critiques on recently published books on relevant topics; 3) Letters to the Editor - responses to previously published articles; 4) Conference Proceedings - please contact the Editor-in-Chief with a 2 page proposal.
