Those of our readers engaging with the anthropology of extractive industries such as oil, gas and mining in the Arctic will be pleased to see that a recently established journal is up, running and already indexed in the scopus citation database.
The journal is interdisciplinary in scope, but rooted in social science for sure. This is what the scope says:
“The Extractive Industries and Society” is the one journal devoted to disseminating in-depth analysis of the socio-economic and environmental impacts of mining and oil and gas production on societies, both past and present. It provides a platform for the exchange of ideas on a wide range of issues and debates on the extractive industries and development, bringing together research undertaken by an interdisciplinary group of social scientists in academia, government, the NGO community and industry.
I think this journal is a good one for many of us to keep track of, because it allows us to place our own research from the Arctic within broader debates on the topic that stem from cases worldwide.
