Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As Editors-in-Chief of Humans, we are delighted and excited to announce the call for papers for the upcoming Special Issue Defining Humans. This Special Issue of the journal Humans will consider high-quality articles from all subfields of Anthropology. The goal is to present cutting-edge research that will define the current scope of the discipline and possible paths forward.

We welcome submissions from Editorial Board Members and outstanding scholars invited by the Editorial Board and the Editorial Office.

All of the accepted papers in this Special Issue will be published free of charge in open access. You are welcome to send short proposals for submissions of feature papers to our Editorial Office ([email protected]) or to contact Dr. Kevin M. Kelly, Humans Co-Editor-in-Chief ([email protected]) to discuss and/or to comment.

We believe that we can make a great contribution to the academic community and our discipline by presenting our own research together in a single volume. Submissions will first be evaluated by academic editors. Subsequently, selected papers will be thoroughly and rigorously peer reviewed. The entire issue will be published in book format after the call for papers has closed and the collection has been thoughtfully vetted.
