Basic information

Horizontes Antropológicos is published twice yearly by the Department of Post-Graduate Studies in Social Anthropology at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS). Initiated in 1995, it represents the Department's constant efforts to publish a high-quality academic journal of international reach.

Each volume is organized around a theme, open to the plurality of interpretations and subjects of interest to anthropologists for the study of sociocultural phenomena. Each issue also includes a section entitled Espaço Aberto (Open Space), allowing space for works that are not directly related to the central theme. The articles should be previously unedited and can be submitted in Portuguese, Spanish, French and English. Subject fields include anthropology, archeology and related areas. In general, articles should be presented to the consideration of the editors, who will then submit the material to external reviewers. However, in exceptional cases, authors of wide renown in the thematic area in question may be invited to contribute to a specific issue.

The abbreviated title of the journal is Horiz. antropol., -- form which should be used in bibliographies, footnotes, references and bibliographic notes.
