guidelines for contributors

Ankulegi welcomes all kinds of submissions, textual, visual, audiovisual and experimental documents and materials, insofar as they are related to the theory and/or practice of Social Anthropology and interlocked disciplines.

Originality of contents:

Ankulegi publishes original contributions which have been specifically created for this digital space, but it also accepts non-original texts and materials which have been previously published and subsequently adapted to its format and requirements. Previously published and adapted contributions must be properly referenced, and their original sources must be duly cited at the beginning of each piece; authors are responsible for complying with editorial guidelines for all sources involved, prior and present. Ankulegi has an informative vocation and aims to attract a wide audience, so we particularly invite contributions which are repurposed from previous work, or pieces that, due to their particular, hybrid character of format, have not been published in other venues. We hope these  special, distinct kind of pieces can contribute to the different thematic sections in our digital blog, and can help to foster debate among the readership.

Submission formats:

Contributions will be placed within different sections of Ankulegi’s digital space, and thus the following submission formats will be accepted:

  • Extended texts: articles, ethnographic narratives, interviews, and similar texts (up to 3,000 words; the word limit might be exceptionally extended to 4,000).
  • Brief texts: short reflective essays, reviews, reports, and similar texts (up to 1,500 words).
  • Graphic and audiovisual materials: artistic and photographic essays, documentaries, and similar materials (they must be preceded by a brief written presentation). They might be incorporated in Ankulegi’s digital space or might be lodged in other digital repositories. Extension limits will be advised for each particular submission.
  • Other materials for downloading: undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations, PhD theses, research reports, and similar materials (they must be preceded by a brief written presentation). They might be incorporated in Ankulegi’s digital space or might be lodged in other digital repositories.

Submissions must include:

  • A title
  • The name of the author or authors (authors can be represented by a collective name or a pseudonym)
  • An institutional affiliation (this is optional, as independent researchers and contributors are welcome)
  • Keywords: between two and four, for inclusion in the tag cloud

Citations and notes:

Formal citations will be kept to a minimum throughout the text, and will be avoided whenever possible. Bibliographic references are to be included in notes at the end of the document, following Chicago Manual of Style 17th edition (full note). We recommend the use of automated styling with CSL. Footnotes are also to be avoided as much as possible.

Submission procedure:

Contributions must be sent to the following E-mail address:

Suitability of submissions and selection criteria:

Ankulegi’s publication criteria are strongly aligned with a series of thematic priorities. These thematic priorities are collectively selected by the members of the association, and different chosen themes inform each one of the association’s annual conferences, thus updating the association’s interests year-on-year. Although it is not necessary to frame contributions within the given thematic priorities of Ankulegi, the editorial board will give preference to those submissions which enrich existing critical reflection and debate within the digital space.

Following the criteria described above, the editorial board will assess the quality and suitability of submissions. After decisions for publication are made, the editorial board will contact contributors in order to inform them of their decision, and to give them further instructions when necessary (about required changes, for instance).

Publication of contributions: requirements

Accepted submissions will be published on condition that authors register on Ankulegi´s digital space; they will be asked to provide names, surnames and E-mail addresses. This registration will guarantee that authors are indexed within Hypotheses, and will facilitate authors´ participation in other posts and debates. Registered authors will also be able to moderate their own post threads (and will share this moderating role with the editorial team).

Debate and comments

Ankulegi strives to be a dynamic, open to debate digital space, so all interested parties can leave comments about contributions or blog entries in different sections and post threads. All those wishing to comment must also register with their names and E-mails. The editorial team will be in charge of moderating comments, and will block any responses to posts or debates which are either offensive or irrelevant to the discussion.
