New publications are available at the Scout Report!

Open Anthropology

Open Anthropology is the first digital-only, public journal of the American Anthropological Association. Each issue focuses on a “timely theme” and gathers anthropology articles, past and present, related to it. For instance, the October 2014 issue is titled, “World on the Move: Migration Stories.” Articles on the theme include a 1920 missive by the famed ethnologist Franz Boas, groundbreaking work about “How People Moved Among Ancient Societies” (2013), and a “Narrative of an Asylum Seeker” (2004), just to name a few. Each issue is offered free of charge, with an insightful Editor’s Note that describes the topic and the current articles.
