Anthropology is the study of humankind and the behavior of humans according to the diversity of societies from the origin to the present day. Anthropology explains both biological and Sociocultural aspects of humans and related species like primates throughout the evolutionary period.
The journal is using Editorial Manager System for quality in peer review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking systems. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of ANTP or outside experts; at least two independent reviewers approval followed by editor approval is required for acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system, hopefully to publication. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.

Anthropology is a social science that deals with the origins, physical and cultural development, biological characteristics, social customs, and beliefs of humankind. It has origins in the humanities, the natural sciences, and the social sciences. Anthropologists’ realized the need to get involved in development paradigm as development initiatives focused to economic assistance or economic expansion.
Traditionally, the significance of archaeological sites has been determined primarily via consideration of scientific value. In recent decades, more humanistic concerns related to history and cultural heritage have received increased attention. A particular site may be considered significant because it can tell us scientifically useful things we don’t know about the past, or because of an association with a person or event of historical note, or because it is a place of spiritual importance to a descendant group.
The Engagement Theory is a framework for technology-based teaching and learning. Its fundamental underlying idea is that students must be meaningfully engaged in learning activities through interaction with others and worthwhile tasks. While in principle, such engagement could occur without the use of technology, Kearsley and Schneiderman believe that technology can facilitate engagement in ways which are difficult to achieve otherwise.
Ethnobiology is the scientific study of dynamic relationships among peoples, biota, and environments. As a multidisciplinary field, ethnobiology integrates archaeology, geography, systematics, population biology, ecology, mathematical biology, cultural anthropology, ethnography, pharmacology, nutrition, conservation, and sustainable development.
A Community lab was conducted by the central university of Himachal Pradesh for the study of the demographic and ethnology of the nearby community. A field survey was conducted by the students with an efficient set of questionnaires which pertains the following contents i.e. a brief family introduction, demography of the family with land inventory, farm buildings and implements, cropping pattern, input and labor use, consumer durables, consumption of cereals, borrowing and repayment, problem and sources of information.
Folklore and traditional knowledge is in the process of degeneration due to disruption of forest covers, uprooting of tribal population due to industrialization. So there is urgent need to document the available information in detail for future application and scientific investigation
Human ethology, which was established on the basis of classical zooethology, can be an inspirational contribution to the study of human behavior. The study of behavior in natural conditions is stimulating as well as the primary interest of ethologists in such behavioral patterns showing evolutionary success and benefits and which are called inborn or innate.
The adaptive strategies that allow them to survive and thrive in environments atypical for primates is a topic of great interest in itself, but also has implications for human evolution by offering novel insights into the factors driving the evolution of terrestriality and bipedality in hominins and semi-nomadic behaviour in hunter-gatherers.
Human geography is one of the two major branches of geography and is often called cultural geography. Human geography is the study of the many cultural aspects found throughout the world and how they relate to the spaces and places where they originate and then travel as people continually move across various areas.
The Human Relations Area Files (HRAF), a microfiche collection of information on more than 330 different ethnic, cultural, religious, and national groups worldwide, is used by social scientists and students studying a particular culture or cultural trait or for making cross-cultural analyses. Included are more than 750,000 pages of text from books, articles, and unpublished manuscripts as well as English translations of foreign texts available exclusively in HRAF.
Intangible cultural heritage is an important factor in maintaining cultural diversity in the face of growing globalization. An understanding of the intangible cultural heritage of different communities helps with intercultural dialogue, and encourages mutual respect for other ways of life.
Memetics is the study of ideas and concepts viewed as "living" organisms, capable of reproduction and evolution in an "Ideosphere" (similar to the Biosphere) consisting of the collective of human minds. Memes reproduce by spreading to new hosts, who will spread them further (typical examples are jokes, catchphrases or politicial ideas).
The origin of society in general, that is, of association among animals, and of human society in particular, can no longer be regarded as purely a speculative question. During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries social philosophers gave so many and so varied answers to this question, from the supernatural to the contract theory, that it deservedly fell into disrepute.
Philosophical Anthropology in this sense comprises of philosophy of the human; i.e. critical reflection upon questions concerning the human being as such. Philosophy of anthropology; i.e. critical reflection upon methods and theories within anthropology and anthropological research. Anthropological philosophy; i.e. critical reflection upon the impact of anthropological approaches and their findings on philosophical conceptions of human affairs.
Philosophy is the academic discipline concerned with making explicit the nature and significance of ordinary and scientific beliefs and investigating the intelligibility of concepts by means of rational argument concerning their presuppositions, implications, and interrelationships; in particular, the rational investigation of the nature and structure of reality (metaphysics), the resources and limits of knowledge (epistemology), the principles and import of moral judgment (ethics), and the relationship between language and reality (semantics).
Prehistoric medicine refers to medicine before humans were to read and write. It covers a vast period, which varies according to regions and cultures. Anthropologists, people who study the history of humanity, can only make calculated guesses at what prehistoric medicine was like by collecting and studying human remains and artifacts.
Qualitative research is aimed at gaining a deep understanding of a specific organization or event, rather than surface description of a large sample of a population. It aims to provide an explicit rendering of the structure, order, and broad patterns found among a group of participants. It is also called ethnomethodology or field research. It generates data about human groups in social settings.
Sociology is the study of human social relationships and institutions. Sociology’s subject matter is diverse, ranging from crime to religion, from the family to the state, from the divisions of race and social class to the shared beliefs of a common culture, and from social stability to radical change in whole societies. Unifying the study of these diverse subjects of study is sociology’s purpose of understanding how human action and consciousness both shape and are shaped by surrounding cultural and social structures.
Theological anthropology is a study of the human person in conversation with the doctrinal framework of particular religious traditions – is by no means a new discipline. If anything, it has fallen from favour and a regular, or easily recognizable, place on theological curricula over the last four decades, despite the efforts of scholars such as Karl Rahner and Hans Urs von Balthassar in the 1960s.
