  • bio-medical anthropology: auxology, behavioural ecology, epidemiology, nutrition, sexual-reproductive health, population biology, psychology, psychiatry, etc.
  • socio-cultural anthropology: ethics and anthropological methodology, urban anthropology, anthropology of religion, symbolic anthropology (including symbolic anthropology of modern and contemporary art), philosophical anthropology, psychological anthropology, etc.
  • paleoanthropology: human osteology, bio-archaeology, forensic anthropology, paleopathology, etc.


Priority will be given to articles that explore medical topics, or highlight aspects related to human physical and mental health. ARS encourages its contributors to emphasize the impact that main topic presented in their papers could have on physical and mental health at individual and/or social scale. As regards the domain of paleoanthropology, the articles focused on paleopathology and the comparative studies on the diseases in ancient times have increased chances to be accepted.


Keywords: anthropology, medicine, psychology, sociology, paleoanthropology.
