Ethnic Studies Review is a peer-reviewed multi-disciplinary international journal devoted to the study of ethnicity, ethnic groups and their cultures, and inter-group relations. Since 1978, NAES has published the journal under three different imprints.  Every issue of the journal is accessible for electronic download:

Explorations in Sights and Sounds (Book Reviews, March 1981-Summer 1995)

Explorations in Ethnic Studies (January 1978-July 1995)

Ethnic Studies Review (February 1996-present)



The journal is published twice a year, although manuscripts are received on a rolling basis. All works are subjected to a double-blind, peer-review editorial process. We strive for the highest quality work from any discipline on topics relevant to an inter/multi-disciplinary readership.
