Section Policies


‘Articles’ are the most traditional section of the journal. Articles should comprise a maximum of 7.000 words (including abstract, notes and bibliography, notes) and may contain a maximum of 6 images and 3 short videos excerpts (with max. 3 minutes running time each).


Essays are textual contributions (that may also contain images) comprising discussions of a more reflexive nature, not always based on empirical research. As such, they are reviewed according to criteria that places emphasis on the state of the art of a given scientific area, and the contribution the author may make to the ongoing academic debates. A more personal style of writing, or even a more exploratory or speculative framework is acceptable, as long as it is rigorously sustained by a solid theoretical corpus and the research experience of the writer. Maximum of 5.000 words and 4 photos.

(Audio)visual essays

‘(Audio)visual essays’ are contributions which build upon an ample source of audiovisual material (photographs, videos, sounds, etc.), accompanied by a contextualizing text of no more than 3.000 words. Photo-essays should comprise a maximum of 20 photographs. Videos in this section are limited to 4 excerpts of 5 minutes running time each.


‘Ethno-arts’ are either (a) works which do not fit into the traditional social sciences framework but do seek to reflect on questions relevant to the social sciences by means of experimental approaches, or (b) artistic projects which in some way articulate with the objects and topoi of anthropology, sociology or ethnography.

Field diaries

‘Field diaries’ are extracts of notes from the ethnographic field. They should be accompanied by a text of contextualization of no more than 2.500 words.

‘Review essays’ are texts which critically examine other publications, like books, articles or films related to the social sciences, and which aim to assess those in respect to the “state of art” of its knowledge domain. They may comprise a maximum of 4.000 words, including notes and bibliography.
