RAI Book Series

RAI Book Series

  1. The RAI Book Series in Anthropology is intended to cover anthropology in its widest sense. Proposals are therefore welcome from any anthropological field, whether historical or contemporary.
  2. At present, an arrangement has been made with Sean Kingston publishing to publish these volumes in association with the RAI.
  3. The series editor 2014-2017 is Professor Jeremy MacClancy.
  4. Single-author books are welcome. Edited volumes, coherently structured around a theme, are also eligible.
  5. Proposed manuscripts should be in English, no longer than 100,000 words. Though preliminary enquiries are welcome, any decision will only be made on the basis of a final manuscript.
  6. If found potentially suitable for publication, manuscripts received will be sent to referees. The decision of the RAI is final.
  7. The aim of the series is to provide a publishing outlet for work of the highest quality. Commercial considerations are therefore not paramount, but it is the aim to reinvest any surplus achieved in future projects.
  8. Authors are expected to cover any photographic reproduction costs, to correct the proofs, and to produce an index.
  9. Authors are welcome at any stage in their academic career.
  10. So that we can log all queries, expressions of interest should be made in the first instance to publications@therai.org.uk.
