Aims & Scope

The Cambridge Journal of Anthropology is an international, peer-reviewed journal that publishes ambitious and rigorous scholarship in contemporary social and cultural anthropology. The journal draws on a range of theoretical and political traditions to provide original insights into human social life and to critically interrogate the terms of the anthropological endeavour.

The journal encourages the submission of ethnographic research articles that generate new ideas and aspire to encourage readers across different topical, regional and theoretical fields.

The journal is published twice a year (spring and autumn) and features original peer-reviewed research articles and book reviews. In addition the journal publishes occasional collections of essays and commentaries that debate issues of significant, topical interest.
