Focus and Scope
Journal of the Polynesian Society welcomes papers from a wide range of social, cultural, indigenous and historical disciplines on topics related to the past and present lives and cultures of peoples of Pacific/Oceanic heritage, including those of the traditional cultural areas of Polynesia, Melanesia and Micronesia. This includes submissions in the areas of social anthropology, archaeology, ethnology, history, museum and material culture studies, Māori and Pacific Studies, linguistics and biological anthropology. The Journal is published quarterly and includes main articles (typically between 7000-10,000 words), shorter communications (4000 words or less), correspondence and book reviews. Book reviews are solicited by the Book Review Editor.
