Journal of Contemporary Ethnography
JCE is a flagship journal in ethnography, guiding qualitative research in the social sciences since 1972. Published six times per year, it provides an international and interdisciplinary forum for research that uses ethnographic methods to investigate human behavior in natural settings. JCE is peer reviewed.
JCE seeks empirical papers using ethnographic methods such as participant-observation, unobtrusive observation, intensive interviewing, contextualized discourse analysis, narrative analysis, and qualitative feminist analysis.
We welcome submissions from the social sciences, including Anthropology, Communication Studies, Criminology and Criminal Justice, Education, Gender Studies, Gerontology, Health Studies, Leisure Studies, Management, Marketing, Race & Ethnic Studies, Religion Studies, Sociology, and Women’s Studies.
