New journal from SAA

From the editor:

NOTE: First two issues are free.

On behalf of the Society for American Archaeology (SAA), I am pleased to announce Volume 1, Number 1 of Advances in Archaeological Practice: A Journal of the Society for American Archaeology!

Launching a new SAA journal has happened only three times in the past: 1935 with American Antiquity, 1990 with Latin American Antiquity, and 2002 with E-tiquity (no longer published). This new journal pushes SAA into the future. Not only is the digital format changing the way SAA publishes scholarly peer-reviewed articles, it will allow for the inclusion of exciting new data, faster time to publication, and instant global distribution. The content, too, is progressive and you finally have a forum to publish your innovative research on how we do archaeology: how we learn about the past, how we convey our findings in the present, and how we manage resources for the future.

The first two issues are completely free and open to all, but starting with the February 2014 issue, subscriptions will be available for $199 per year for non-member individuals, but if you join SAA, you may choose to receive it for FREE!. Until then, we invite you to download Volume 1, Number 1 of our journal here. I hope that you enjoy it.

Editor, Advances in Archaeological Practice: A Journal of the Society for American Archaeology

P.S. I invite you to engage our new journal as an author, reviewer, and reader. I encourage you to think in new ways about what can be published as well as how to take full advantage of the digital format. As the inaugural editor of the journal, I’m open and available to help you brainstorm ideas, answer your questions, and hear your suggestions on how to improve the journal as a resource and tool for the practice of archaeology.
