Frequently Asked Questions

1) When is the next issue of the APUA going to be available?

We are currently collecting articles, and do not have a release date of the next volume. When we have a release date, we will update our front page to reflect this; alternatively, if you would like to be notified when we have a release date, please go to our Subscriptions page and sign up for updates.

2) I would like to submit an article for the APUA; how can I do so?

APUA editors are currently accepting original manuscripts, including monographs, special issues (e.g., conference proceedings), and research articles. For discipline-specific multi-authored editions (e.g., Dene-Yeniseian Connection), the APUA style guide can be modified, but we generally recommend Chicago Style for cultural and linguistic anthropology, and American Antiquity style for archaeology and physical anthropology. Contact the appropriate Associate or General Editor for specific questions regarding submissions.

Ben Potter, General Editor

Jamie Clark, Associate Editor (Archaeology)

Kara Hoover, Associate Editor (Biological Anthropology)

Patrick Plattet, Associate Editor (Cultural Anthropology)
