      Mathematical Anthropology and Cultural Theory,
      or MACT

      MACT is a refereed technical journal for the cultural
      sciences. We especially want to publish original research on mathematical
      anthropology, cultural theory, cognitive theory, the philosophy of science
      as applied to those topics, and related areas. Papers can be mathematical,
      or formal models, or (sometimes) just good reasoning. We particularly want
      to publish new papers using or at least directly appealing to and underlain
      by algebras, computational theory, logics, lattices, "finite methods",
      combinatorics or similar techniques. Innovative ideas will be favored.
      Likely to be rejected: papers which are simply statistical studies or
      applied text book methods, and papers using standard analysis and/or
      standard simulations - it may be good research but there are many other
      places for those papers.

      Our international Board of Editors are: Ubiratan D'Ambrosio,
      Emeritus Professor of Mathematics, Universidade Estadual de Campinas
      (Brazil); Irina V. Ezhkova, Professor of Artificial Intelligence and
      Cognition, International Institute of Applied Technology, (Brussels);
      Richard Greechie, Professor of Mathematics, Louisiana Technical University;
      F.K. Lehman (F.K.L. Chit Hlaing), Professor of Anthropology and Cognitive
      Science, University of Illinois (Urbana); Martin Ottenheimer, Professor of
      Anthropology, Kansas State University; Dwight Read, Professor of
      Anthropology and Professor of Statistics, University of California at Los
      Angeles; and Senior Editor Paul Ballonoff of Ballonoff Consulting.

      A consensus of the Board of Editor that the paper is worth
      publishing is required to be published in MACT; when necessary, peer review
      by outside readers will be used - MACT is a Refereed Journal. Please allow
      us up to six months to consider a proposed paper. After suitable papers are
      accepted and revised if and as required, we post them in Adobe Acrobat, with
      a publication date including volume number, calendar year, and month. As an
      on-line journal we are not restrained by the elements that confine
      traditional journals. Deadlines don't force us to publish unsuitable papers.
      There is therefore also no mandated minimum nor maximum size.

      We prefer that the authors take a copyright on their own
      work. However, by submitting a paper to MACT you grant us a license to
      publish the paper in electronic form, and at our option in printed or other
      forms. Once accepted and published, you also grant a license to any user of
      the journal to download and print the paper, and to cite from it subject to
      normal standards for reasonable scientific use. No fees are charged for
      access to the site or for publication.

      In summary, if we think it is a useful new contribution to
      cultural science, and we can put it in an Acrobat file, we can publish it
      here. MACT is an SBBay.com Publication. Log in at:

          Anthropologists and sociologists (including students, both graduate and
          undergraduate) are invited to submit manuscripts for consideration in an
          expanded edition of the book "Landscapes of the Heart" -- one that will
          cross the boundaries of ecology, culture, health, the social sciences
          the humanities. Individuals already involved include E.O. Wilson
          Harvard; winner of two Pulitzers), Noam Chomsky (MIT), David Cash
          School of Government, Harvard), Maurice Strong (2003 Recipient of
          Academy of Sciences's highest award), Stephen Schneider (Biological
          Sciences, Stanford), Lee Gass (Sculptor and Professor, UBC; recent
          of National 3M Award as "Professor of the Year"), and Stephen Kellert
          (Forestry and Environmental Studies, Yale). Guidelines for the new
          can be found at:


          There is a strong need to have women correct the very unfortunate and
          highly undesirable preponderance of men in this project so far. Please
          forward this CALL FOR PAPERS to women's groups/lists/newsletters of
          you are a part. I want to ensure that at least 50% of the authors in the
          expanded edition are women.
