Contributions include working papers from senior academic staff, post-docs, visiting researchers and guest lecturers and revised versions of excellent bachelor and master theses.

ZANTHRO is peer reviewed by the Department’s editorial board and invites contributions throughout the year. The ZANTHRO working papers are available in electronic format through the Department's public website.
