The Human Voyage: Undergraduate Research in Biological Anthropology is a journal that publishes outstanding student articles in all areas of biological anthropology, including primatology, palaeoanthropology, bioarchaeology and human behavioural ecology. Submissions may take any of the following formats:

  • Essays: Papers of up to 5,000 words that make a significant contribution to scholarship through the complete and thorough analysis of the literature on a relevant topic.
  • Research papers: Papers of up to 5,000 words that use original research to answer a novel research question.
  • Student experience pieces: Papers of up to 2,000 words that outline a student research experience gained during undergraduate training at ANU. This can be based on participation in a field school, intensive or lab-based course.

While the primary goal of this journal is to publish work of the highest quality authored by undergraduate students, it will also educate students in regards to publishing in academia. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and edited by ANU academic staff.
