In June 2009, AAA's Publishing Department began an initiative to reach out again to historically underserved and under-resourced institutions around the country. As part of the AnthroSource Philanthropic Initiative over 120 Tribal Colleges, First Nations Colleges and Historically Black Colleges and Universities were individually re-invited to activate a free subscription to AnthroSource. After the initial push for the initiative in the summer of 2009, we are thrilled that AnthroSource access has been established in almost a dozen more institutions.
In January 2011, the publishing department again reached out and is pleased to say the students and communities served by another 9 Tribal Colleges can benefit from more than a century of full-text anthropological knowledge.
AAA is very excited to make the cutting-edge research published in our journals available to the widest audience, to engage source communities in anthropological information, and provide a resource at no cost to communities that may not have had access otherwise. We can only do this with the support of our publishing partner, Wiley-Blackwell, who administers the fulfillment of AnthroSource.
In addition to the AnthroSource Philanthropic Initiative, AAA and Wiley-Blackwell also participates in a number of philanthropic programs to provide broader access at the journal level. Learn more at the AAA blog!
