The Journal of Northwest Anthropology (JONA) is a peer-reviewed scholarly, biannual publication. We welcome contributions of professional quality concerning anthropological research in northwestern North America. Theoretical and interpretive studies and bibliographic works are preferred, although highly descriptive studies will be considered if they are theoretically significant. The primary criterion guiding selection of papers will be how much new research the contribution can be expected to stimulate or facilitate.

In our Memoir Series, we publish works of a thematic nature. Past memoirs include the collected works of distinguished anthropologists in the Pacific Northwest, Native American language dictionaries, reprints of historical anthropological material, and efforts of Native American and academic collaboration.

JONA aims to be a resource for those within the anthropological fields looking for information about the Pacific Northwest by spotlighting underrepresented individuals and groups, providing information about museum collections and field schools to subscribers, and keeping a running list of books, researchers, and northwest anthropologists.
