Editorial

The inauguration of International Journal of Modern Anthropology coincides with a time when some findings from anthropological research provide new conclusions against some classic questionable considerations and / or show a tendency to do some syntheses of multidisciplinary data. The revelation of these two events marks the birth of a modern anthropology. The principal aim of this journal is to contribute to the development of this modern anthropology.

In fact, the traditional break between different specialities of biological anthropology and those of cultural anthropology led to a smash of the man study. In addition, the persistence of some classic questionable considerations even in some recent publications would have somewhat restrained the progression of the anthropological science. Modern anthropology comes to head all anthropological specialities and to permit the confrontation of knowledge, which will stimulate researchers to start real grand syntheses from multidisciplinary data. In addition, it comes to encourage anthropologists to get rid of questionable considerations.

Description of the journal & Instructions for authors
It is a peer-reviewed journal, which publishes papers aiming to extend our understanding of the humankind in all its aspects. It concentrates on topics, which need syntheses of multidisciplinary data from different specialities of Biological and Cultural Anthropology:

- Human origins and evolution
- Genetic Anthropology
- Forensic anthropology
- Paleo-Anthropology
- Medical Anthropology
- Health and Population Sciences
- Human Biology
- Formation of the basic structure of the first bio-molecules common to humans and all living beings: Origins of life on Earth
- Psychological anthropology
- Anthropological linguistics
- Anthropology of religion
- Historical archaeology
- Ethnography

- Social Anthropology

It publishes papers following several formats:

Original Synthesis Articles presenting grand syntheses of analysed data from biological anthropology specialties and those linked up from cultural anthropology specialties or vice versa. Syntheses must be original and provide new important conclusions, new theories or new methods and / or lead to resolutions to old questions or to convincing critic and review of questionable considerations (presented in about 26 to 35 pages of manuscript double-spaced).

Original Synthesis Reports or Research Reports presenting new experimental and / or theoretical results on interesting anthropological subjects (presented in about 13 to 24 pages).

Original Discovery Reports (do not exceed 6 pages) are papers, which provide only the first information of discoveries in Biological Anthropology and in all aspects of basic Human Biology or in Medical Anthropology such as discoveries expanded from popular traditional medicine. Thus, authors could publish the corresponding detailed results in a second original article or in a patent.

Review Synthesis Articles or Review Synthesis Reports reflect current interests on all aspects of Biological Anthropology and related aspects of Cultural Anthropology (articles presented in about 26 to 35 pages, while reports in about 10 to 20 pages).

Critical Reports or Critical Short Reports, in which modern anthropologists can bring out general ambiguities and classic or new questionable considerations in any anthropological subject. They can also criticize data and conclusions provided by recent original paper.

Thought Reports or Thought Short Reports, Editorials, Perspectives and Book Reviews are welcome

Citations (IF) and h5 index

JCR®JIF is the proprietary journal impact factor from Thomson Reuters calculated based on the Web of Science (WOS) and published in the Journal Citation Reports® (JCR). International Journal of Modern Anthropology has not yet a JCR®JIF, but it has an alternative impact factor based on Google Scholar's citation count as follows:

 

Google-based Impact Factor (2008-2015): 1.66
Corresponding h5 index: 3

 

This alternative impact factor was calculated by adding up all quotations of articles published in IJMA during indicated years; this number was divided by total number of articles published in IJMA during indicated years.

 

Corresponding h5 index was calculated by counting all articles published in the IJMA during indicated years; all articles must be ordered by number of total quotations during indicted years from the most quoted one to the least quoted one. By going down the papers, stop should be done before counting order number is going to be higher than the next ordered paper, i.e.: The order number counted must be always higher than number of found quotations.
