Student Anthropologist is the flagship peer-reviewed journal of the National Association of Student Anthropologists, the largest organization of student anthropologists in the world. It is an annual digital publication. We encourage students from all levels and disciplines to contribute to the journal.

Aim and Scope
We aim to provide students with an opportunity to present their research and voice their perspectives through our annual publication, Student Anthropologist.With each issue we explore new directions in anthropology, allowing student interests to guide our selection of thematic and theoretical avenues of inquiry. We seek a plurality of voices from all subfields and levels within the discipline.Student Anthropologist welcomes not only original research addressing anthropological issues and problems but also submissions that examine how anthropological skills, ideas, and ethnography can shed light on contemporary social issues. The journal is committed to guiding students through the peer review and revision process to publish innovative and high-quality articles.

Submission Guidelines
We seek scholarly submissions from undergraduate and graduate students worldwide, in particular those emphasizing anthropology’s capacity to inform public issues, social problems, and global realities. These submissions should contain original research or commentary.

Any student currently enrolled in a BA, MA, or PhD program is welcome to submit original research to be considered for publication. While this is an anthropology journal, students do not need to be enrolled in an anthropology program.

We accept two types of scholarly submissions:

  1. Research Articles: based on the author’s original research; under 6,000 words in length.
  1. Commentary Submissions: opinion, theory, or “think” pieces that are the original work of the author. Submissions might include such mediums as written pieces (approx. 2,000 words in length), photo essays (10 photos + 1,000 words of commentary in length) and videos/YouTube© clips (10-minute maximum in duration + 1,000 words of commentary in length).
