Suomen Antropologi: Journal of the Finnish Anthropological Society welcomes contributions from the field of anthropology as well as from other related disciplines. Please submit your manuscript to the Editor-in-Chief or the Editorial Secretary as an email attachment, RTF or Word format (1.5 line spacing; Times New Roman 12-point font; alignment left). If access to electronic mail is not available, the submission may be sent on a CD. Divide paragraphs with a double space, do not indent; do not format headings or the body of the text unless a word needs to be italicized (foreign language or emphasis); indent long quotations but do not otherwise format.
Each article-length manuscript must begin with an abstract of approximately 150 words, ending with a list of up to seven key words. Approximate manuscript lengths (including the abstract, reference list and endnotes) are as follows: articles 8-11,000 words; research reports and essays 3-5,000 words; book reviews and news items 1,500 words. We welcome illustrations, charts, drawings and photographs, which should be sent as separate, numbered and titled files, not embedded in the article text file. References (including archival references) must be indicated within the text, for instance (Boas 1928: 75) and not appear as foot or endnotes. Endnotes may be used for additional comments. References are listed in full at the end of the text in the following manner:
