The journal of Economic Anthropology (Wiley Blackwell) is calling for open submissions for Volume 6, Number 1, which is to be published in January 2019. EA is a bi-annual refereed journal published by the Society for Economic Anthropology (SEA) to make available research that is innovative and interdisciplinary and focused on economic and social life to serve scholars, practitioners, and general audiences. The journal has recorded the highest rate of growth for readership for all 33 American Anthropological Association journals for the last two years. To further the goal of making the most current research available to a broad audience, EA emphasizes clear and accessible writing. The editors encourage authors to take advantage of the journal’s online format and incorporate photos, graphics, and links to videos or other related materials. The journal considers the work of scholars and practitioners at all points in their careers, including advanced PhD students.

Timeliness is an important consideration in the EA process. It is the goal to bring each issue to final publication within approximately one year from the date of submission. This ambitious deadline represents a big commitment to getting new work out quickly and serves everyone’s interests, including junior scholars who are especially pressed to publish in quality journals without long lead times.
