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.
