Article problems[edit]

I'm not sure what this article is trying to accomplish. Is this supposed to be a list-type article? In any case, it contains some inconsistencies/errors. For example, why is a journal on European cultures and edited by someone in Northern Ireland classed as an "American" journal? (Categorizing academic journals by "nationality" is a practice that has been abandoned for quite some time now). The classification seems rather haphazard anyway. There's a section named "four-field journals" (might be useful to explain this to non-specialist readers, because by implication only one field is mentioned: anthropology; and the following line suggests its not fields, but sub-fields), but the very first journal in the next section is also said to "incorporating all four sub-fields". --Randykitty (talk) 12:03, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

Agreed. This is a work in progress. Look for clean-up in the near future.

Added the journal Sites to the list[edit]

I have added the journal Sites: a Journal of Social Anthropology and Cultural Studies to the section listing journals by area of geographic coverage. I have also provided an external link to the journal's homepage. I am the current Secretary for this journal. I know that it's not normally the done thing to add information about your own organisation to Wikipedia, so I hope this is ok. This list article is a useful starting point for finding new journals to read and publish in, and it would be great to see it developed further.
