The Anthropology Undergraduate Journal (AUJ) is now taking submissions for our 2019-2020 edition to be published in April 2020. We encourage you to submit a paper you’re particularly proud of from any of the four sub-fields of anthropology or any related disciplines that use anthropological methods or insights. These papers can be essays written for classes at the 300-400 levels and that have received a mark of 80 or higher, or independent undergrad research!

Publishing your work in the AUJ is a rewarding opportunity to showcase your work to the anthropology community and other scholarly communities here at U of T. It also has the added benefit of looking great on your C.V.!

If you would like to submit a paper, please fill out the submission form (linked below). Write an abstract and remove any identifying markers from all pages of your paper (i.e. name, student number, etc.) and send both the submission form and paper (including an abstract) to We won’t be able to accept papers without abstracts.

Further information/submission guidelines can be found at the bottom of the post. The deadline to submit is January 17, 2020. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at

We hope you submit and look forward to reading your submissions!

  1. where can I download the PDF for the 2015/2016 journal? My son is published in it and the EPUB file I’ve downloaded doesn’t display properly on my device, so I’d like the PDF instead… thanks!

  2. Hi Paul,

    The PDF for the 2015/2016 AUJ should be up at some point today! I’m sorry for the wait; we’ve been having some technical difficulties with it. If you have any trouble with it, feel free to either comment again or send us an email.

  3. Hello Wilson,

    Sorry for the late reply, but I hope your semester has been well.

    Our Editor in Chief of the AUJ has confirmed that students registered at the other UofT
    campuses are encouraged to make submissions!

    Thanks for your interest, and good luck with your submission.

    All the best,

  4. Hi Madison, 15 pages excluding references is fine. Though we may ask you to reduce it a bit during the editing process, should it be accepted!
