Call for Special Issue (spring 2025)

The special issue consists of 4 to 6 original research articles, and an introduction by the guest editors. All articles are subject to double-blind peer-review and published Open Access free of charge. The guest editors will work in collaboration with the editorial board in selecting, reviewing, and producing the special issue scheduled for publication in the spring of 2025.

Proposals for a special issue should have a unifying theme of anthropological relevance.
