The Journal of Linguistic Anthropology is a publication of the Society for Linguistic Anthropology, a section of the American Anthropological Association. The journal is published three times annually, in May, August, and December.

Submissions to the journal should be based on original research and should engage substantively with contemporary issues (theoretical, analytical, methodological, etc.) in linguistic anthropology and allied fields of study. Submissions should not exceed 9,000–10,000 words (inclusive of notes but not bibliography). Other kinds of submissions, such as critical essays, interviews, and commentaries, may also be considered for publication.

All issues of the Journal of Linguistic Anthropology, from 1991 to the present, are available through AnthroSource and the Wiley Online Library.
