Global Ethnographic accepts articles with an ethnographic focus from a range of disciplines including social anthropology, cultural studies, philosophy, humanities, social psychology and area studies. Although GE normally fields articles from academics, submissions from postgraduate students, as well as submissions of exceptional papers by undergraduates, are also encouraged. GE employs professional practicing social anthropologists to review and edit articles--the peer review process is akin to an academic journal, and thus a publication in GE will count as a serious publication towards an academic career.
In general, we accept articles on any topic related to human social life. Articles must, however, be ethnographic in nature and be written in accessible language. Articles that feature verbose language or overly in-depth theoretical discussions are not normally considered, although if the ethnographic findings warrant such investigations then exceptions will be made. Writing clearly, simply and with the aim of gaining the interest of the general reader is a challenge which must be taken up if social research is to have an impact beyound the academy. Articles using photographs, creative writing styles, and any other novel approaches to involving the reader in the experience of the ethnographer are thus particularly welcome.
The maximum word limit for articles is 3000, (7 pages of 12 point text), and shorter articles still (between 1,000-2,000 words) are encouraged. Any references to other work must be complete and cited in an established format. You will need to submit your article as a word file to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org . Please include a brief summary of your status and affiliate university/institution (if appropriate). Following submission, you will receive confirmation that your paper has been received for review (usually within 7 days). You will then be notified of a decision on whether your paper is to be published on-line within 28 days of this confirmation. Please attach pictures in common formats (.jpg or .gif).
