Now, after more than 50 volumes, Abstracts in Anthropology has evolved into an eclectic overview of the many-faceted realms of anthropology and established itself as an indispensable reference and research tool for the international community of anthropologists. The Journal covers a broad spectrum of significant, current anthropological topics from several hundred periodicals. Man's speech, physiology, artifacts, history, environment, and social relations are described, analyzed, interpreted, and compared within the human and animal realms.
Because the traditional focus of anthropology has changed from Third World societies to subcultures within industrialized nations, the Journal tracks social welfare issues, drug abuse programs, geriatric caregiver issues, and applied anthropology. Physical anthropology is becoming increasingly a sub-area of medical intervention, techniques and ethics of genetic engineering, and societal factors in disease transmission. Archaeologists are focusing on environmental issues, geographical overviews, and ecological factors in prehistoric site selection.
Abstracts in Anthropology is the only comprehensive abstracting journal in the field of anthropology, publishing three thousand abstracts per volume which provide a thorough coverage of anthropological scholarship in all its subfields:
- Cultural Anthropology
- Physical Anthropology
In addition, Abstracts in Anthropology makes finding information easier by including a cumulative index of author and subject listings in the fourth and final issue of each volume. Browse through the Journal-in print or online-and marvel at human diversity, ingenuity, and creativity.
