This site is our social space, where we showcase our outreach and public engagement ventures. If you would like to submit an article, or learn more about the submission process, please click here.

The New Florida Journal of Anthropology is an open access, peer-reviewed, graduate student-run academic journal housed in the Anthropology Department of the University of Florida. Submissions are not limited to the UF community or its affiliates. We encourage diversity of scholarship by publishing any anthropologically focused research with no geographic or temporal restrictions.  In the spirit of inclusion, we also welcome research from related subjects including linguistics, geography, history and other related fields. Our primary goal is the dissemination of knowledge. To attain this, NFJA issues are gold open access, meaning they are digital, and completely free of charge for both authors and readers. 

We accept submissions from established researchers who have either earned a graduate degree (MA, MS, PhD, etc) or are currently in graduate school. We accept submissions from undergraduates provided that at least one author has earned a graduate degree or is currently in graduate school. All research article submissions are subject to double-blind peer-review by experts in the field, while ethnographic film submissions undergo single-blind review.
