Mission: 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 tangential subjects including linguistics, geography, history and other related fields. Our primary goal is the dissemination of knowledge. To attain this, we provide all NFJA editions in a fully open access digital format, free of charge for both authors and readers.
We support scholarship from all degree levels, in that we accept submissions ranging from established researchers and academic staff to students. All professional or graduate student submissions are subject to double-blind peer-review by existing, PhD level experts in that field. We also encourage undergraduate scholarship by including original work in our “Undergraduate Research” section of the NFJA. These are also subject to the peer-review process by reviewers holding a minimum of a Master’s degree. Therefore allowing graduate students the opportunity to gain experience as reviewers.
