Journal of the Anthropological Society of Oxford online

Introduction

The Journal of the Anthropological society of Oxford (JASO) was originally launched in 1970 as a hard copy journal; it ceased publication in that form in publication year 2000 (actually in 2005). It was re-launched to coincide with the Centenary of the Oxford Anthropological Society in 2009. The new online journal, called JASO-Online, is a joint collaborative project between JASO, the Society, and the School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography, which is hosting the website. It is intended to appeal to all branches of the School, staff and students alike. We hope it will be an active forum open to all for the discussion of anthropology and issues of interest to anthropologists. JASO-Online is available as a free download. Contributors will not be paid for their contributions.

As with the original JASO, our policy will be to accept articles of interest to anthropologists from any discipline and any part of the world. We therefore invite contributions in the form of articles especially (see below for information on book reviews). Potential contributors should note that, although JASO-Online will not be a refereed journal, a strict quality threshold will apply (including the English language), and that we therefore cannot undertake in advance to accept papers or other items offered to us. All contributions should be in English. Information for contributors is on a separate page linked below.

Completed submissions should be sent as email attachments to the Editors at: jaso@anthro.ox.ac.uk. David Zeitlyn is the Web Editor for JASO-Online. Further queries regarding this aspect of the journal can be made to him at David.Zeitlyn@anthro.ox.ac.uk.

Potential Book Reviewers

The Editorial team are also seeking students in particular who would like to select a work from a broad range of anthropological texts and write a review of between five hundred and one thousand words in length (1.5-3 pp. preferably towards the lower end of this range). In return the reviewer may keep the book (which JASO will usually be able to provide), but we cannot, of course, guarantee acceptance of the review before having seen it.

If you wish to take a look at the list, please e-mail your request to OUAnthsoc@gmail.com or contact the editor (address above). The final review should be e-mailed to the e-mail address above for articles.
