This year, POLAR: Political and Legal Anthropology Review made its debut on the prestigious ISI Impact Factors ranking of anthropology journals. Not only did POLAR make its debut, the journal is in the top half of the Anthropology list!
Other notable rankings of AAA Journals are:
While many humanities scholars and cultural anthropologists correctly point to shortcomings of the Impact Factor, university deans and personnel committees often use the impact factor heavily in assessing the publications of candidates. For more advice on publishing, see AAA’s webpage on publishing research articles or look at the book How to Get Published in Anthropology, which covers all different kinds of publications.

The Anthropology and Environment Society (formerly the Anthropology and Environment Section of the AAA) seeks participants for a new mentoring event, which will take place during the 2012 AAA Annual Meeting in San Francisco. We will select students to meet in small groups with A&E faculty members to workshop their dissertation projects (or pieces of them). We aim for this program to not only build graduate student networks within Environmental Anthropology, but also to provide a constructive space to share dissertations-in-progress. Ph.D. students in any stage of their program are welcome to apply. For consideration for this year’s mentoring event, please send the following documents to Sarah Besky (firstname.lastname@example.org) by September 15:
• A 500 word abstract of a dissertation (for students who have not yet begun writing-up) or dissertation chapter (for students writing-up). This abstract should indicate the student’s stage in her program as well as describe: 1) particular questions or concerns the student has with the piece; and 2) why the student is interested in participation. (If the student is submitting a chapter, please describe of how the chapter fits into the larger dissertation.)
• The full-length version of the student’s dissertation proposal or chapter.
Given time constraints, A&E faculty members will only be able to comment on the dissertation’s overall conceptualization (i.e. the dissertation proposal) or the contents of one dissertation chapter. Please do not submit complete dissertation drafts.
The A&E Mentoring Program is separate from the Rappaport Prize, which is given for article length and breadth writing. Together with the Rappaport Prize, the A&E Mentoring Program is aimed at creating a supportive and inclusive intellectual community within the Anthropology and the Environment Society.
