Mind, Culture, and Activity (MCA) is an international forum for the publication of peer-reviewed articles that examine the way that mind and culture are constituted in a wide variety of human activities. We seek to promote dialogue among different schools of thought theorizing relationships between the human mind and the sociocultural environments it inhabits. We place emphasis upon research that takes a critical stance towards questions of human praxis and development, including a reflexive stance towards the researchers' own practices. In particular, authors are advised to critically scrutinize their research practices and categories to avoid characterizing psychological and cultural diversity in terms of deficits. Studies that deal with cultural historical phenomena, such as emergent forms of mediation, relationality, ethical practice, power relations, politics of learning, or social justice, are encouraged. We especially encourage work that situates the studies of mind, culture, and activity in the Anthropocene epoch, attending to the challenges and issues that it brings forth.

We encourage interdisciplinary contributions—including, but not limited to, anthropology, psychology, sociology, history, philosophy, education, linguistics, critical race theory, media studies, queer studies, disability studies, and performance studies. We particularly encourage reports of research which have engaged partnerships reflecting a diversity of cultures, nationalities, and perspectives, especially which engage those that have been traditionally marginalised in the field. We invite authors to read the articles published in MCA in order to get a better sense of the journal's scope, as well as encourage them to engage in dialogue with prior relevant scholarship published in the journal.

Empirical and theoretical research is welcomed. When empirical results are part of a submission, the journal typically publishes research that is primarily qualitative, but quantitative and mixed research methods are encouraged as well.

We consider several types of articles: substantial contributions that present theoretical research or syntheses of theoretical and empirical research devoted to a significant topic (up to 8,000 words); commentaries responding to articles published in MCA (up to 2,500 words); and works written in alternative, creative formats (up to 2,500 words). We also include book reviews (up to 2,000 words), book review essays (up to 4,000 words) and shorter book notes, as well as retrospective narratives of one's own work (up to 8,000 words). If you would like submit a book review, please contact the Book Review Editor first.

Please keep in mind when you are preparing a manuscript that our readership includes a broad range of scholarship from the social sciences and humanities. Please avoid jargon that is familiar only to researchers in one field. We use APA (6th ed.) as reference style. Refer to Instruction for Authors to prepare your manuscript for submission.
