The Applied Anthropologist
The High Plains Society for Applied Anthropologist has published some version of a professional journal almost since its inception. For many years the journal was called The High Plains Applied Anthropologist
; in 2005 this was changed to simply The Applied Anthropologist
, recognizing its appeal to academics and practitioners both within and beyond the High Plains region. In fact, the journal publishes articles from authors throughout the U.S. and beyond, on many aspects of applied anthropology and related fields. In addition to research articles, we publish shorter notes describing research projects; book reviews (including multiple reviews with author responses); and commentaries. For more information on the journal, please contact the Editor-in-Chief, Stephen O. Stewart (firstname.lastname@example.org

It is peer-reviewed and professionally edited and produced. The Editor-in-Chief and two anonymous peers review each submission prior to its acceptance for publication.
In addition to research and thematic articles, we feature commentaries and reviews, including invited book reviews in which several individuals review a book and the author responds to those reviews.
