Anthropological Forum – an international journal of social and cultural anthropology and comparative sociology – is published four times a year. 

Founded in 1963, Anthropological Forum seeks to examine and advance disciplinary approaches in its publication of articles from a variety of anthropological and sociological perspectives, ranging from the established to the experimental. The editors welcome empirically based ethnographic studies and probing theoretical explorations dealing with global processes and local instantiations, particularly, but not exclusively, in the journal's traditional areas of focus: Aboriginal Australia, Australian culture and society, the Pacific and Southeast Asia. A special section entitled 'Involving Anthropology' (building upon our 'Applied Forum') periodically treats issues of professional and public interest in relation to theoretical paradigms, methodological approaches, interdisciplinary connections and ethical quandaries.

Forum is edited by Laurent Dousset, Katie Glaskin and Nicholas Harney.

Anthropological Forum gratefully acknowledges the assistance provided by the Professor Ronald M. and Dr Catherine H. Berndt Research Foundation.

Anthropological Forum's Impact Factor is 0.744 with an A ranking in the European Science Foundation's Reference Index.
