Peer Review Process

Articles submitted to Anthropology Matters undergo double blind peer-review. A submission may be rejected for specified reasons without review if it is deemed unsuitable or inappropriate for inclusion in the journal. The editing process often requires several rounds of work and authors are expected to respond to queries from editors and copyeditors in a timely and respectful manner. The Editors reserve the right to decide at any point not to publish a manuscript.

The views expressed in articles belong to their authors rather than to Anthropology Matters or the ASA. Authors are responsible for securing permissions for all images and any other types of materials of which they are not the owner.

 

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
