Author Guidelines

Anthropology Book Forum invites scholars to critically review books. Book review manuscripts should be between 1,000-1,250 words in length, typed 1.5-spaced and in a 12-point font, preferably Times New Roman or equivalent, including quotations and excerpts, notes, references, tables, and figure captions. Position the notes at the end and the list of references after the notes. In addition, authors are asked to include a short bio at the end of their review. 

ABF follows the Chicago Manual of Style (16th ed., University of Chicago Press, 2010) for most matters of style, including hyphenation, capitalization, punctuation, abbreviations, and grammar, and follows Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary (11th edition, 2003) for spelling.

Please include: the review author(s) name and short biography; full book citation; five keywords; the review text including notes, references, and figure captions. All pages of the manuscript should be numbered consecutively in the bottom right corner. Please do not use inserted page breaks.

Full book citations should be listed at the top of the page as such:
