RAL is a refereed series dedicated to the five subfields of Anthropology (Archaeology, Biological Anthropology, Ethnomusicology, Linguistics and Social Anthropology) with a regional focus on New Zealand, the Pacific, and Australasia. RAL was initially established in 1995, an outgrowth of Working Papers in Anthropology, Archaeology, Linguistics, Maori Studies (discontinued in 1990).
In 2005, two separate series were distinguished, RAL Monographs for longer contributions with significant theoretical and/or methodological contributions to the discipline and RAL-electronic with a focus on disseminating substantive results and technical data. Both series are peer-reviewed.
Preference is given to research undertaken by staff and students of the University of Auckland, Departments of Anthropology and Linguistics, but other manuscripts that deal with subjects of special interest to anthropologists are also considered. The issues in each series are numbered consecutively as independent contributions and appear at irregular intervals.
