Anthrōprospective is an online journal that focuses on the extensive field of anthropological research in Australia and beyond. Our primary objective is to make anthropology more accessible to a broad audience. We welcome a wide range of articles, including short and long-form pieces, concept and opinion pieces, essays, photo and fieldwork essays, and interviews with a specific focus on anthropology or related disciplines. Our goal is to explore what it means to be human in a constantly evolving world. We are seeking articles, essays, and opinion pieces that delve into vital social science research and current topics.

Our team is committed to providing a balanced and well-informed perspective that counters the polarizing nature of mainstream media. We welcome submissions that are thoughtful, rigorous, and of high literary standards. Our journal celebrates critical thought and objective research rigor. We aim for a level of writing that is just short of academic journal standards, but without the jargon. Our short and long-form articles use the APA referencing style to ensure consistency and accuracy.

We encourage new writers to submit their full articles for review and editing. Please note that all articles go through an editing process, and we strive to maintain a high degree of literary quality in our offerings. To get a better sense of our editorial style and aesthetic, we invite you to read our past articles. If you have any questions, we invite you to reach out to us.
