Frequently Asked Questions
We are currently seeking manuscripts, 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.
APUA editors are currently accepting original monographs or special issues (e.g., conference proceedings). 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.
