Readers interested in anthropological research conducted by scholars worldwide should check out Deja Lu ("Already read"), an initiative of the World Council of Anthropological Associations. This open-access journal is effectively an anthology of scholarship curated by the editors of peer-reviewed anthropology journals published around the world, with the aim of "pluralizing the dissemination of anthropological knowledge on a global level." Launched in 2013 and currently in its sixth issue, Deja Lu republishes scholarly articles on any anthropological topic, giving its readers a unique opportunity to access a cross-section of diverse research in one place. While many of the articles are fully available in English and most have had their abstracts translated into English, some are only available in their original language of publication. Articles that have been fully translated into English can be found in the Translations section. One example of a translated article is a study originally published in the Japanese Journal of Cultural Anthropology examining how the Boorana, a society in Ethiopia, preserve and construct their own history without a written language.
