Basic Information


  • Founded in 1997, Etnográfica is the only Portuguese journal exclusively dedicated to Social and Cultural Anthropology. It is published by CRIA tree times a year and is now a dynamic and consolidated project, well established as a high-standard scientific publication that deserves vast international acknowledgement.

    Diversity and Pluralism
    Etnográfica reflects the diversity of theoretical perspectives, fields of study and loci if the production of contemporary anthropological knowledge, and also the variety and richness of the social and geopolitical contexts studied by anthropologists. Is publishes regularly articles resulting from innovative and up-to-date researches, sometimes presented in thematic dossiers, besides other contributions such as reflections on the anthropological practice itself, interviews with renowned anthropologists, book reviews, commentaries on exhibitions, and so on. Accepting manuscripts in four languages – Portuguese, English, Spanish and French –, Etnográfica is able to broaden its scope, both in terms of what is published and of the public that has access to them.

    A networking journal
    Currently having Miguel Vale de Almeida as its editor-in-chief, Etnográfica brings together anthropologists from several institutions in its editorial board and counts on an international advisory board including about forty researchers from universities in different European, American and African countries. Furthermore, the rigorous refereeing system adopted in the journal’s production provides it with a vast network of external collaborators.

    Visibility and internationalization
    Etnográfica is available online at SciELO and is indexed in EBSCO’s databases, Anthropological Index Online and Latindex. This grants a permanent widening of the universe of its readers and published authors, thus establishing the journal as a relevant conveyor for the promotion of research results and international scientific debates, as shown by the excellent scores attained in the Qualis program (CAPES, Brazil) and the European Reference Index for the Humanities (European Science Foundation).
