The American Journal of Physical Anthropology (soon to be named American Journal of Biological Anthropology in January 2022) is the official journal of the AABA. Started as a quarterly in 1918 by the AAPA/AABA's founding organizer, Ales Hrdlicka, the AJPA is currently published monthly by John Wiley & Sons. It prints over a hundred original scientific papers each year, as well as the abstracts and proceedings from the AABA's annual meetings and other official AABA documents and notices. To submit a manuscript online, authors can visit the Wiley site: AJPA Online Manuscript Submissions.
AJPA celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2018. A complete table of contents of articles published from its inception in 1918 to the present is available here.
The Yearbook of Physical Anthropology (soon to be named Yearbook of Biological Anthropology in January 2022) is an open-access annual publication. It provides broad but thorough coverage of developments within the field of biological anthropology through summarizing and synthesizing the state of the art in a particular subfield, presenting new paradigms for addressing important issues of general interest, detailing new technologies that are vital to advancing the discipline, or providing historical perspectives on the field. More information about the Yearbook and how to submit a manuscript can be found here.
