Call for Papers: Economic Anthropology journal

The journal Economic Anthropology (Wiley Blackwell) is calling for open submissions for Volume 10, Number 1, which is to be published in January 2023. EA is a bi-annual refereed journal published by the Society for Economic Anthropology (SEA) to make available research that is innovative, interdisciplinary, and focused on economic and social life to serve scholars, practitioners, and general audiences. The journal has recorded the highest rate of readership growth and citations for all 34 American Anthropological Association journals. To further the goal of making the most current research available to a broad audience, EA emphasizes clear and accessible writing. We encourage authors to take advantage of the journal’s online format and incorporate photos, graphics, and links to videos or other related materials. The journal considers the work of scholars and practitioners from throughout the world and at all points in their careers, including advanced PhD students. 

Timeliness is an important consideration in the EA publication process. It is our goal to bring each issue to final publication within approximately one year from the date of submission. This ambitious deadline represents a big commitment to getting new work out quickly and serves everyone’s interests, including junior scholars who are especially pressed to publish in quality journals without long lead times. 

EA promotes inclusivity, diversity, antiracism, and anti-colonialism. We therefore encourage our potential contributors to cite relevant publications of members of historically marginalized groups and scholars from countries where the research was carried out.   

The open submission issue features articles spanning a wide array of topics and disciplines including: 

  • Sociocultural Anthropology 
  • Archaeology 
  • Sociology
