Economic Anthropology is the Society for Economic Anthropology’s influential and interdisciplinary forum for research on economic and social life. The journal reports the findings of scholars from a range of disciplines including cultural anthropology, archaeology, demography, economics, ecology, geography, and history.

Economic Anthropology publishes two issues per year. Of the two issues, one allows “open submissions” of papers and features both regular-length papers and the “Symposium,” short essays by high-profile economic anthropologists responding to timely topics.  Another, guest-edited issue focuses on a topic of current debate and significance, following the thematic format of the Society’s Annual Meetings. Themed issues have addressed Greed, Landscapes of Value, Economies of Convenience, and Wealth-in-People, and other topics.
