Thanatos is a biannual open access multi-disciplinary peer-reviewed online journal published by the Finnish Death Studies Association (FDSA). Thanatos aspires to advance dialogue between scholars and professionals, and to broaden discussions about death and dying that cross traditional scientific boundaries. Thanatos welcomes all ideas for publications and for future theme issues.
Thanatos consists of research articles, long and short research reports, book reviews, columns, and seminar reports. The primary publication language is Finnish, but we accept manuscripts also in Swedish and English. Thanatos does not charge any publication fees, but all proofreading costs are the responsibility of the author(s).
Thanatos follows the guidelines of the Finnish Association of Scholarly Publishing and the Advisory Board on Research Integrity (TENK) and has been granted the right to use the label for peer-reviewed scholarly publications by the Federation of Finnish Learned Societies. Each research article marked with the peer-review label goes through a review process in which at least two external and independent experts evaluate the rigour and contribution of the article.
Abstracts, article submissions and suggestions for theme issues can be sent to the editors-in-chief: Ilona Pajari (kuolemantutkija[a]gmail.com) and Anna Ilona Rajala (anna.i.rajala[a]tuni.fi).
