Anthrologia accepts submissions for publications. Anthrologia publishes academic work which has significance in society, and which has been produced by academics of high standing.

All submissions will be considered and reviewed by a board of reviewers. The response period is approximately one month, after which, the editors will inform the submitters as to the feasibility and quality of the submission.

The peer review process is final, and, the chronicle editors must respect the decisions of the review board. However, Anthrologia does welcome any appeals, and also considers these seriously.

Author Guidelines

Online submission and review of manuscripts is mandatory for all submissions. Prepare manuscripts adhering to the following guidelines prior to submitting online at https://anthrologia.net/information/submission/. Following successful submission, you will receive an e-mail acknowledging successful submission. Direct any correspondence to the Editor in Chief, Michael Hadzantonis, at editor@anthrologia.net.

Sections for publication


Editorial Policy

Due to the very broad scope of Anthrologia across the soft sciences, contributions must be of high quality. We encourage submissions that stimulate dialogue across the soft sciences and beyond. Submissions must focus on their respective fields at which they are directed. Hence the submission must address any of the above categories.

Submissions for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, must either be documented on video by Anthrologiamedia unit, or must be accompanied by a video recording, for which, Anthrologia will notify the submitter.

Welfare and Publication Ethics

Social research should follow the highest standards of research ethics and we ask that authors ensure that submissions conform to guidelines set by reputable sources such as the British Sociological Association https://www.britsoc.co.uk/about/equality/statement-of-ethical-practice.aspx and the Association of Social Anthropologists of the UK and Commonwealth https://www.theasa.org/ethics.shtml

Editors may and at times of doubt, should seek advice from referees on ethical matters, where editors will have final decision. The Journal subscribes to the principles of the Committee on Publication Ethics.

During submission, authors must agree to the Author’s Declaration confirming that

  • the work as submitted has not been published or accepted for publication.
  • the work as submitted is not being considered for publication elsewhere, either in whole or significant part.
  • the work as submitted is original and all necessary acknowledgements have been made.
  • all authors and respective parties have read the submitted manuscript and approve its submission.
  • all persons entitled to authorship have been so included.
  • all work conforms to appropriate legalities, policies and ethics.

Submission, initial assessment and peer review

All submissions to Anthrologia undergo an initial assessment to check whether the submission is in scope. If the editors judge the submission to be more appropriate for a publication with a different scope, they will contact the submitter as such.

Anthrologia has a web-based system for submissions and their review. Submissions should be prepared in accordance with the Author Guidelines and uploaded to https://anthrologia.net/submissions. Subsequent correspondence should be routed via the Editor in chief, Dr. Michael Hadzantonis, at editor@anthrologia.net. Manuscripts may be returned to authors without an extensive assessment if they fail to meet submission requirements, or format requirements.

Submissions must represent original and copyright satisfying work of authors / contributors.

One or more editors assesses each submission so to determine its appropriateness to Anthrologia.

Manuscripts that pass the initial assessment are assigned to a subject expert in our team of Associate Editors to oversee the review process. Authors are asked to provide the names and emails of at least 5 potential referees working outside their home institution(s) and qualified to provide an independent assessment of the work. Authors may also identify referees they would prefer not to review the manuscript. These suggestions will be used as a guide although Editors are not obliged to follow them.

All submissions are subject to peer review and authors can expect a decision, or an explanation for the delay, within 3 months of receipt. If a revision is invited, the corresponding author should submit the revised manuscript within 3 weeks. Otherwise, revisions may be treated as new submissions and sent for further evaluation by new referees unless an extension to the revision period has been agreed with the editor.

Types of decisions

  • Immediate Reject after pre-review screening
    After submission, all submissions undergo a pre-review assessment by members of the editorial team based on numerous criteria.
  • Initial pass
  • If a submission is not rejected at the pre-review stage it goes forward for peer-review. Typically, each paper is reviewed by two independent referees and an assessment is made by one of the Journal’s associate editors. The final decision is taken by one of the senior editors based on the information gained through the peer review process.
  • Reject
  • Resubmit
  • Revision
  • Provisional accept
  • Final accept

LANGUAGE. Manuscripts must be written in English. They should be clear, concise and grammatically correct. Spelling should conform to the Concise Dictionary of Current English. Journal style is not to use the serial comma (also known as the Oxford or Harvard comma) before and/or/nor unless meaning would otherwise be obscured. Editors reserve the right to modify accepted manuscripts that do not conform to scientific, technical, stylistic or grammatical standards, and minor alterations of this nature may not be seen by authors until the proof stage.

PRE-SUBMISSION ENGLISH-LANGUAGE EDITING. Authors for whom English is a second language should have their manuscript corrected by a competent English speaker prior to submission where necessary. Alternatively, authors may wish to consider having their manuscript professionally edited before submission to improve the English. Anthrologia’s editing services can be found by emailing info@anthrologia.net. All services are paid for and arranged by the author, and use of one of these services does not guarantee acceptance or preference for publication.

UNITS, SYMBOLS AND ABBREVIATIONS. Authors should use the International System of Units (S.I., Systeme International d’Unités; see Quantities, Units and Symbols, 2nd edn (1975) The Royal Society, London). Mathematical expressions should contain symbols not abbreviations. If the paper contains many symbols, they should be defined as early in the text as possible, or within the Materials and methods section. Journal style for time units are: s, min, h, days, weeks, months, years. Use ‘L’ for litre not ‘l’ to avoid confusion with ‘one’. Use the negative index for units, e.g. number of insects g-1 dry wt (also note there is no period for wt).

MATHEMATICAL MATERIAL. Mathematical expressions should be carefully represented. Wherever possible, mathematical equations and symbols should be typed in-line by keyboard entry (using Symbol font for Greek characters, and superscript options where applicable). Do not embed equations or symbols using Equation Editor or Math Type, or equivalents, when simple in-line, keyboard entry is possible. Equation software should be used only for displayed multi-line equations, and equations and symbols that cannot be typed. Suffixes and operators such as d, log, ln and exp will be set in Roman type: matrices and vectors will be set in italic. Make sure that there is no confusion between similar characters like l (‘ell’) and 1 (‘one’). Ensure that expressions are spaced as they should appear. If there are several equations they should be identified by an equation number (i.e. ‘eqn 1’ after the equation, and cited in the text as ‘equation 1’).

NUMBER CONVENTIONS. Text: Numbers from one to nine should be spelled out except when used with units, e.g. two eyes but 10 stomata; 5 °C, 3 years and 5 kg. Tables: Do not use excessive numbers of digits when writing a decimal number to represent the mean of a set of measurements. The level of significance implied by numbers based on experimental measurements should reflect, and not exceed, their precision; only rarely can more than 3 figures be justified. Be consistent within tables.

File formats. At the time of submission, or after acceptance of the manuscript for publication, figure files should be supplied as follows. Photographic figures should be saved in tif format at 300 d.p.i. (or failing that in jpg format with low compression) and should have good contrast. Line figures should be saved as vector graphics (i.e. composed of lines, curves, points and fonts; not pixels) in pdf, eps, ai, svg or wmf format, or embedded as such in Word, as this enhances their display when published online. Combination figures (those composed of vector and pixel/raster elements) should also be saved in pdf, eps, ai, svg or wmf format where possible (or embedded as such in Word). If line figures and combination figures cannot be saved in vector graphics format, they should be saved in tif format at high resolution (i.e. 600 d.p.i.) (do not save them in jpg format as this will cause blurring). If you are unsure about the quality of your figures, please inspect a small portion by zooming in to check that fonts, curves and diagonal lines are smooth-edged and do not appear unduly blocky or burred when viewed at high magnification. Note that line and combination figures supplied in tif format are downsampled for online publication, authors should therefore preferentially opt for vector graphic formats for these figure types (note, however, that for print publication full resolution files will be used).
