Irish Journal of Anthropology

The Irish Journal of Anthropology is the official publication of the Anthropological Association of Ireland. It is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal, published once per year. The IJA aims to promote the discipline of anthropology on the island of Ireland, North and South. It seeks to provide coverage of Irish-related matters and issues in general anthropology, and to be of interest to anthropologists inside and outside academia, as well as to colleagues in a range of other disciplines, such as archaeology, cultural studies, development studies, ethnomusicology, ethnology and folk studies, Gaeilge, Irish studies, and sociology.

Members of the AAI receive the journal as part of their membership subscription. Information on joining the AAI can be found here.
