South Asian Anthropology is interested in original contributions. This is a peer-reviewed journal and articles and essays are published only after the author(s) has/have resubmitted the article in compliance with reviewer's suggestions and recommendations, if there be any.
The manuscripts must be submitted by e-mail attachment to: A covering letter giving a short biographical note on the author(s) along with a declaration as to the originality of the work and the non-submission thereof to anywhere else must accompany the manuscripts.
There should be an Abstract given on the top of the text. The text should be organized under appropriate headings and sub-headings. A quotation that will run more than fifty words should be set off as a single-spaced, double-indented paragraph. Tables should be given separate numbers in the manuscript such as Table- 01, Table- 02 etc. with appropriate headings. Illustrations, graphs and charts should be drawn in deep blue ink on thick drawing papers clearly and legibly within the printing area with appropriate legends. The contributions must be in the style outlined below.
Conditions of publication in the Journal are:
(a) that the paper has not already been published elsewhere;
(b) that it is not currently being considered for publication elsewhere;
(c) that, once published in the Journal, it will not be reprinted without permission from the Editors;
(d) all persons designated as authors should qualify for authorship, and all those who qualify should be listed.
The Dhaka University Journal of Anthropology uses Cross Check plagiarism software as part of the editorial process. Cross Check is an initiative started by Cross Ref to help its members actively engage in efforts to prevent scholarly and professional plagiarism. The software identifies matching text in different documents, which can highlight possible cases of plagiarism for the editorial office to investigate further. By submitting your manuscript to this journal you accept that your manuscript may be screened for plagiarism against previously published works.
Articles, research papers and essays (5000-7000 words); Book review and review articles (1000-1200 words), Opinions/debates (1500-2000 words) and a photo-essay (visual-anthropological account subject to a maximum of 12 photos in colour or black and white preceded by brief contextualization (400-600 words).
Abstracts and keywords should be carefully thought out and precise. Abstracts will be used to draw in potential reviewers and readers. Keywords have a significant impact on how widely read your article will be when electronic searches are done.
Besides personal acknowledgements, sources of financial support should be mentioned in this smaller-type section, if desired.
We recommend the use of a software such as EndNote or Reference Manager for reference management and formatting.

All subsequent lines should be indented beyond the date. No underlining or boldface should be used in the reference list. Thus, the style should be as follows:
