  • Anthropological Review (formerly Przegląd Antropologiczny and Przegląd Antropologiczny - Anthropological Review) is the official publication of the Polish Anthropological Society.
  • It has had a long tradition of publication since its founding, in 1926, by Adam Wrzosek, an eminent Polish physical anthropologists and physician.
  • The journal, appearing semi-annually, publishes (since 1997) in English, and is a scientific journal devoted to issues in physical anthropology (including human biological variation, human growth and development, paleoanthropology, skeletal biology, dental anthropology) and related fields of science (including health sciences, evolutionary psychology, theoretical biology, demography). The journal, therefore, attempts to promote an interdisciplinary view of the human being.
