From the first Research Report introduction: "The University of Massachusetts Department of Anthropology Research Reports Series is designed to fill two specific publication needs. In the first place, it offers a means of rapid dissemination of significant datacollected by professional anthropologists (who are usually, but not necessarily affiliated with the University of Massachusetts).
These data are either the relatively "raw material" which will subsequently be further analyzed and refined in more formal publication, or data which are in a sense peripheral to the central research concern of the author and thus might otherwise not be published.
In either case the expeditious publicationof the data is warranted by their potential utility to scholars working on similar or related problems Journal of Anthropology Reports discusses the latest research innovations and important developments in this field..
The second aim of the Series is to provide a medium of publication for advanced graduate students in anthropology who have made a significant contribution to anthropological knowledge through independent research -- either in the literature or in the field - and whose lack of professional status largely precludes publication in more established series.
