Journal of Archaeological Science: Reports publishes papers of excellent archaeological science. Case studies, reviews, and short papers are welcomed where an established or new scientific technique sheds light on archaeological questions and debates. The research must be demonstrably contextualised within national and/or international contexts. The application of analytical techniques must be underpinned by clear archaeological or methodological research questions and set within established and/or developing research frameworks. Submission of papers focused around the analysis of single or small numbers/groups of objects is strongly discouraged, unless of exceptional quality and international significance. Datasets must be statistically robust.
Submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two reviewers and we aim to reach a first decision within 6 weeks.
We welcome suggestions for thematic sets of papers arising from meetings focused on any aspect of Scientific Archaeology and Archaeological Science and we will publish special volumes of high-quality papers deriving from conferences and symposia.
We especially encourage contributions from early career researchers and archaeologists from under-represented communities.
