The Journal of Social Anthropology is a peer-reviewed journal. The Journal of Social Anthropology invites original papers theoretical as well as field/date oriented, from the scholars working in the different dimensions of social-cultural anthropology, sociology, folklore, sociolinguistics, tribal and rural studies, human ecology and environment together with the various facets of development of human communities. In addition to these thematic papers the journal will publish research news, book review reports, shorter notes and academic discussions as well as professional announcements of specific importance. The contributors are requested to send their manuscripts, written in English language, accompanied by an abstract of not more than 250 words which should reflect the specific mode of approach of the paper. The manuscript should be clearly typed double spaced, in good quality bond paper and must always be submitted in duplicate. Each paper should bear the name, official designation and addresses alongwith e-mail address of the author. The references in relation to any author pointed out in the body of the text should come in the following order-last name of the author, year of publication of the work and pages number. When the name of the author under references is already given in the text, then only the date of publication and page number are to be written. The words other than English uses in the article should be underlined which would be italicized in the printed form. The authors of the concerned papers are solely responsible for the opinions made therein and in no circumstances the editor/publisher would be liable for these comments. The authors may send their papers on floppy disk which should be accompanied by one hand copy. Notes and references should be given at the end of the paper and there must be an alphabetical order in the arrangement of the references cited.
