About the Journal

Focus and Scope

The goal of this journal is to provide undergraduate students of history and archaeology with an outlet to publish their work. Works completed on any topics within archaeology and history will be considered, although interdisciplinary works which can be considered archaeological or historical in nature can also be considered (for example, a folkloric work focused on material culture can be considered archaeological, as could an analysis of domesticated species and their evolution in relation to humans completed for a biology course).

Peer Review Process

All submissions will be submitted for peer-review at least once before being accepted or rejected for the benefit of the author. This journal aims to be beneficial and instructive to all submitors, even those unsuccessful. 

Successful submissions will be returned to the authors with either major or minor revisions and will be edited until it has reached satisfactory quality. 

Publication Frequency

This journal is published annually.

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
