About the Journal


The Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute was established in 1901 as Man and obtained its current title in 1995, with volume numbering restarting at 1. For first sixty-three volumes from its inception in 1901 up to 1963 it was issued on a monthly basis, moving to bimonthly issues for the years 1964–1965. From March 1966 until its last issue in December 1994, it was published quarterly as a “new series”, with a new sequence of volume numbers (1–29).
