Submit/Request Guest Post

Guest posts are a great way to connect with new readers, if you are an anthropologist or have ideas that relate to anthropology then submitting or requesting content from this site could help you grow your name and expand your audience.

Submissions: What guest posts are we looking for?

HJA is aimed at providing quality content or resources in the fields of social and biological anthropology and archaeology (with lots of wiggle room for related subjects), so content should be centred around these topics. I am not currently looking for anything specific within these subjects, so as long as your submission is good, it has a chance of being published here.

However there are some rules to follow:
  • There are no minimum or maximum word limits, but I usually like posts no shorter than 700 words and no longer than a few thousand words.
  • You should submit an author bio of around 100 to 200 words so that readers can see you are a real person, try and make it fun or entertaining! Of course you can add links to your Facebook or Twitter here too.
  • Links within guest posts should be limited to one or two (links to your own articles, bio etc.), and these links will be checked.
  • Your guest posts must not be published elsewhere on the internet or in physical print, including your own site. This is to make sure that all content on HJA is fresh and unique. I will take steps to check that the post is unique, and if I find that this agreement has been disregarded after the content has been posted, then it will be removed without notice and your details blacklisted. You may of course link back to your post on HJA, just not duplicate it.
  • You must be willing and able to respond to any comments or feedback you may receive from readers.

I will personally make editorial adjustments to your guest posts (images, spelling/grammar checks, formatting) and may contact you with ideas of visual details which could be improved or changed to suit the audience and/or copyright laws.

If you think you have ideas for a guest post that follows these rules and would like it submitted to HJA for review, then please use the contact form at the bottom of this page to send some information about your ideas. Try to be as detailed as possible about your submission and use the subject heading ‘Guest Post Submission’, thank you!
