From the American Anthropological Association blog we learn that the Top 100 AAA Articles of 2012, the articles most downloaded from Anthrosource during that year, will be ungated for the summer. Anyone interested can read the articles on the Wiley Online Library during this period.

The Top 100 list includes a number of terrific articles related to linguistic anthropology.
