About us

Chungara Revista de Antropología Chilena (The Journal of Chilean Anthropology, printed ISSN 0716-1182; online ISSN 0717-7356) was founded in 1972 by the Departamento de Antropología of Universidad del Norte and has been systematically published since then. Currently, it is printed in four issues per volume annually by the Departamento de Antropología, Universidad de Tarapacá, Arica Chile. Chungara publishes original articles in the different fields of anthropology and other associated sciences that include cultural or social anthropology, archaeology, bioarchaeology, ethnobotany, ethnohistory, geography, geology, geoarchaeology, history, linguistics, paleoecology, semiotics, zooarchaeology, conservation of cultural materials, and museology. The geographic scope of the journal does not focus exclusively on Andean studies, as we accept manuscripts from other regions with comparative theoretical and methodological aims. The editorial structure of the journal includes the following sections: Editorial, Obituaries and In Memoriam, Scientific Articles in the form of Synthetic Manuscripts, Monographic Reports, Essays, Scientific Notes, Letters to the Editors, Debates, Comments on Articles published in Chungara, and Book Reviews, both in Spanish and English. Manuscripts should be uploaded through the Web page or may be submitted in electronic form and sent at any time.
