"The Journal of World Anthropology (JWA) is a scholarly journal. Our goal is to be the general, broad-based anthropology journal of the internet. JWA covers all aspects of anthropology (physical, social, cultural, linguistic, applied anthropology, archaeometry, and archaeology) and related disciplines of the hard and soft sciences, and the humanities. We publish articles, research updates, reviews, and editorial commentary." This onliine full text journal is going to be shelved and replaced by "The Anthropological Review Databse" (ARD). However the online full text issues of JWA have been archived since 1994 to the present are accessible and contain articles that wouild be of interest to anthropologists and other social scientists.
