The Australian Journal of Anthropology (TAJA) publishes scholarly papers and book reviews in anthropology and related disciplines. Though wide ranging in its areas of interest, the journal especially welcomes theoretically focused analyses and ethnographic reports based on fieldwork carried out in Australia and neighbouring countries in the Pacific and Asian regions.

It appears three times a year (April, August and December) and at least one issue per annum is devoted to a specific topic under the direction of a guest editor. Each issue contains approximately 125 pages.
