SITES Call for Papers, Special Sections, Special Issues

We are a peer reviewed, delayed open access journal. We publish 16-20 articles every year in both print and electronic format. Publishing frequency is twice yearly.

Our scope covers multidisciplinary perspectives on the study of societies and cultures of the wider Pacific region. We welcome work from authors in the fields of anthropology, cultural studies, indigenous studies, Māori studies, Pacific studies, sociology, history, gender, linguistics, and ethnomusicology.

We publish empirical studies and theoretical essays, methodological or pedagogical topics which fall within this broad purview. Our journal is trans- and multi-disciplinary and we invite submissions from scholars across a diverse array of disciplinary traditions.
