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).
