Alaska Journal of Anthropology

Mission Statement

Established in 2000, the Alaska Journal of Anthropology is a peer-reviewed publication of the Alaska Anthropological Association. AJA publishes articles and reports from all four fields of anthropology and related disciplines, including history, geography, linguistics, and indigenous languages. AJA also provides a forum for ethnographic and ethnohistoric narratives and translations. Publication emphasis is on Alaska and adjacent regions of Canada and Russia; however, AJA also publishes on issues of broader interest to Northern and Arctic researchers.
