Sponsoring Organizations:

Until now, this journal has not a real sponsor. It receives a very limited material help from the Tunisian Association of Anthropology (TAA). This situation was compensated thanks to the willingness of the Editors who have sacrificed to develop this journal and manage to maintain its stability, the quality of the articles, its technical quality, its internationalization, standardization and transparency. Therefore this journal could represent a model of volunteering or rather of voluntarism.

However, the ‘Centre National Universitaire de Documentation Scientifique et Technique’ in Tunisia, has just begun to plan to encourage international scientific journals developed in Tunisia.
