Instructions for Authors

The Eurasian Journal of Anthropology (EJANTH)  has a fully online submission and online reviewing system. This system offers authors the option of tracking by online based review process of their manuscripts. All manuscripts must be submitted with online from the system by registering.


Manuscript Presentation

The journal's language is English. British English or American English spelling and terminology may be used, but either one should be followed consistently throughout the article. The manuscript should be written using APA Referencing System.

We highly recommend that non-native speakers of English have manuscripts proofread by a copy editor before submission. During submission, including a note from a copy editor may significantly reduce the review time of your manuscript. However, proof of copy editing does not guarantee acceptance of a manuscript for publication in the EJANTH Journal.

James Hostetter (jhost[at] is suggested as a copy editor for English Language proofreading including grammar, sentence structure, content clarity, formatting, punctuation, and spelling.

Alternatively, authors may also use services from the following companies:

EditageEnago, or Elsevier Language Services.

EJANTH Journal publishes only original scholarly works. We do not accept and will not publish manuscripts which are derivative of an author's previous work. Please do not submit your manuscripts simultaneously or separately to both EJANTH Journal and another journal. In such cases the responsibility solely rests with the author(s).

Papers should be prepared with Microsoft Word in .doc or .rtf file format. Format paragraph text using the 'Normal' style in the styles menu. This puts a space before each paragraph so that a blank line is not required to separate paragraphs and automatically sets the text to double line, full justified, 11 pt Times New Roman Font layout. Format the Title of the paper using the 'Title' style in the styles menu, use the 'Abstract' style for the abstract and the 'Quotation' style for paragraph quotes.


Quotations less than three lines long should be incorporated into the text using double quotation marks. For longer quotations (more than three lines or two sentences), use 'Quotation' style in the styles menu.
Number the pages consecutively with the first page containing;
· running head (shortened title)
· title
· author(s)
· affiliation(s)
full address for correspondence, including telephone and fax number, e-mail address and related subject area

Second page

Abstract: Please provide a short abstract of 100 to 250 words. The abstract should not contain any undefined abbreviations or unspecified references.

Key words: Please provide 3 to 5 key words or short phrases.

Third and following pages

Section Headings

First-, second-, third-, and fourth-order headings should be clearly distinguishable.


Please use endnotes rather than footnotes. Notes should be indicated by consecutive superscript numbers in the text and listed at the end of the article before the References. A source reference note should be indicated by means of an asterisk after the title. This note should be placed at the bottom of the first page.


Acknowledgements of people, grants, funds, etc. should be placed in a separate section before the References.


In the text, references to the literature should be cited by using the APA style. In the APA style, references to journals start with author's surname followed by year of publication. If there are multiple citations, present them chronologically. When references are made to more than one paper by the same author published in the same year, they should be designated in the text as (White, 1995a,b) and in the Literature Cited as follows:

Journal article:

Abbreviations of journal titles should follow those used in Index Medicus.


Each table should be numbered consecutively. In tables, footnotes are preferable to long explanatory material in either the heading or body of the table. Such explanatory footnotes, identified by superscript letters, should be placed immediately below the table. Please provide a caption (without abbreviations) to each table, refer to the table in the text and note its approximate location in the margin. Finally, please place the tables after the figure legends in the manuscript.


All photographs, graphs and diagrams should be referred to as a Figure and they should be numbered consecutively. Multi-part figures ought to be labeled with lower case letters (a, b, etc.). Please insert keys and scale bars directly in the figures. Relatively small text and great variation in text sizes within figures should be avoided as figures are often reduced in size. Figures may be sized to fit approximately within the column(s) of the journal. Provide a detailed legend (without abbreviations) to each figure, refer to the figure in the text and note its approximate location in the margin. Please place the legends in the manuscript after the references.


Proofs will be sent to the corresponding author. One corrected proof, together with the original, edited manuscript, should be returned to the Publisher within three days of receipt by e-mail (pdf version).

Line drawings are preferable to photographs. Scanned graphs are less preferred and acceptable only if adequately resolved. Inscriptions should be clearly legible. Letters 2–3 mm high are recommended in the desired final size. Half-tone illustrations, if any, should be well contrasted and trimmed at right angles in the desired final size. Graphs should not be present in large format (e. g. A4 full size), but rather in a typical size of 6—8 cm.
