Altérités is an academic journal that accepts
French and English articles, research notes, and book reviews from
Canadian and foreign M.A. and Ph.D. students and graduates in the
four sub-disciplines of anthropology (socio-cultural, archaeology,
linguistic, and biological).
Altérités Editorial Board has chosen a bi-annual
format for publication. In addition, the committee also encourages
theme-based issues that will appear as “Special Issues”.
Altérités invites M.A. and Ph.D. students and graduates to submit original texts for publication. The journal accepts scientific articles (theoretical and empirical), essays, research notes, critical reviews and (of books) and bibliographical essays. Submitted articles can vary in length, with a maximum of 5000 words (20 pages) for scientific articles, 3000 words (12 pages) for research notes, 1250 words (5 pages) for critical review of a book and 2000 words (8 pages) for bibliographic essays. An Altérités Editorial Board and a board of external evaluators review all texts submitted.
