|J. Roy. Anthropol. Inst.|
The Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute is a quarterly peer-reviewed academic journal published by Wiley-Blackwell on behalf of the Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland. The journal covers anthropological topics such as archaeology, civilisation, ritual, mythology, religion, society, and ethnography and includes a book review section.
The journal 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).
In 1965, Man absorbed The Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland, which was known as The Journal of the Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland from 1872 to 1906.
