The Department of Anthropology publishes two series in anthropology. The University of Montana Anthropology Papers publishes articles in ethnohistory, archaeology, ethnography, and physical anthropology. Outstanding student research is often solicited by faculty for publication. The series date to 1950 and are available as a research source. Contributions to Anthropology are longer, more comprehensive works by students, faculty, and other scholars. The monograph series began in 1967. This series is distributed internationally. Students also may use past issues for research.
