Focus and Scope

Journal of Extreme Anthropology is an international, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary, open-access and indexed journal that publishes articles written in the fields of anthropology, social sciences, humanities, philosophy and critical theory specializing on extreme subjects, practices and theory. The journal publishes primarily monothematic issues, however, articles, essays and book reviews beyond the scope of the special issues are also welcome at any time.

The Journal of Extreme Anthropology is connected to the Extreme Anthropology Research Network which brings together researchers working on extreme, dangerous, obscene, controversial and unconventional subjects and increases public visibility of their research. 

Interested contributors are encouraged to get in touch with the editor-in-chief, Tereza Kuldova, at: tereza.kuldova@oslomet.no prior to submission, in order to discuss the relevance of the proposed contribution to the journal. 

Peer Review Process

Editors acknowledge receipt of all submissions. Prior to submitting to the journal, authors are encouraged to contact the editor-in-chief (tereza.kuldova@iakh.uio.no) in order to discuss their submission. Submissions that do not correspond to the rationale of the journal, are insufficiently original, seriously flawed, or with poor English language may be rejected at this stage. Suitable papers are passed on to the relevant journal editors who then pass the piece on to no more than two reviewers, selected for their interest and competence in the area of the submitted paper. Authors can suggest potential reviewers, however, the final selection of reviewers is at the discretion of editors.

We aim to return reviews within four weeks. A decision on whether to accept or reject the paper, along with any recommendations and comments from the referee(s) will be sent to the author by the Editors, who hold the final decision on accepting or rejecting papers. The articles appear online immediately following copy-editing and typesetting. 

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
