Yearbook of Physical Anthropology
The Yearbook of Physical Anthropology is an annual supplement of the American Journal of Physical Anthropology, and both are publications of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists. The Yearbook provides broad but thorough coverage of developments within the discipline. Yearbook articles summarize and synthesize the state of the art in a particular subfield of physical anthropology and/or present new paradigms for addressing important issues of general interest in the field. In part, Yearbook articles serve as a literature review, but often go beyond this to provide new perspectives on a field, which may include the presentation of original data and analysis. Articles on the history of physical anthropology are also included. Most articles are solicited by the Editor and Editorial Board, although unsolicited articles are also welcome. Individuals wishing to submit an article should notify the Editor before submission. All manuscripts undergo external review before they are accepted. Suggestions for topics to include in future issues of the Yearbook are welcome, and may be made to the Editor or to any member of the Editorial Board.
Manuscripts submitted to the Yearbook must be written in English. The Yearbook follows the style guidelines set out in the Author Guidelines for the American Journal of Physical Anthropology. The Yearbook does not use the American Journal of Physical Anthropology electronic submission system. Two copies of the manuscript and an electronic version should be sent to the Editor at the address below. Manuscripts may be submitted at any time of the year but must be received by early spring for publication in that year's issue of the Yearbook. Specific dates for an article will be worked out between the Editor and the author.
The right to reject or request revision of a manuscript is reserved by the Editor. Authors are responsible for reading and prompt correction of proofs and submission dates must be honored. Manuscripts should normally be no longer than around 60 pages. Requests for information should be directed to the Editor.
