  • Worldwide List of Open Access Journals in Anthropology
    Posted on Sun, 07/25/2010 - 12:26pm

    Because of the historical and contemporary overlap between the fields of folkloristics and ethnology, visitors to the Open Folklore site may have a special interest in the worldwide list of gold open access journals in anthropology and neighboring fields that has been compiled by the website antropologi.info. Many folklore and ethnology titles are included. In addition to listing known journals with links, a search utility has been set up on the site. Find the OA anthropology journal list here: http://www.antropologi.info/links/Main/Journals . This is a great resource for a number of reasons, including the presence here of titles such that have not been included in the Directory of Open Access Journals. The listing should be of special value to higher education librarians and the students and faculty that they support.
    Antropologi.info had already established itself as the best blogroll in anthropology ( http://www.antropologi.info/blog/ ), so this was a logical and wonderful next step.
