[Internet Archaeology]

About Us

Internet Archaeology is an open access, independent, not-for-profit, peer-reviewed journal for archaeology. The journal is open access and operates only to sustain itself. IA publishes articles of a high academic standing while also exploring the potential of electronic publication. The journal was established in 1995 and has been publishing online since 1996. IA was a subscription journal between 2000-2014, but completed the transition to open access in September 2014.

Internet Archaeology is hosted by the Department of Archaeology at the University of York and published by the Council for British Archaeology. It is produced, managed and edited by Judith Winters, who is supported by co-directors Prof. Julian Richards (York) and Dr Michael Heyworth (CBA). A team of advisory editors assist by commenting and advising on submitted proposals and potential referees. The contents of the journal are archived with the Archaeology Data Service whose remit is the long-term preservation of digital research materials.

Our Policies

Advertising policy: Internet Archaeology accepts advertising from commercial, not-for-profit and academic institutions as long as the service being advertised is of archaeological relevance and will be of interest to our readership.

Archive policy: Internet Archaeology is archived by the Archaeology Data Service, the national digital archive for archaeology in the UK.

Author information: View our author guidelines here including editorial policy.

Copyright/Licencing policy: IA disseminates content under a Creative Commons Attribution licence (CC-BY 3.0) licence. Under this licence, authors do not assign their copyright to Internet Archaeology but instead retain ownership of the copyright for their content, and allow anyone to download, reuse, reprint, modify, distribute, and/or copy the content as long as the original authors and the source are cited with re-users making clear the licence terms under which the work was published.

Data papers: view our guidelines on data papers.

Editorial policy (aims and scope): Internet Archaeology is broad in scope, accepting all manner of research and method articles, data papers, reviews through to e-monographs. IA aims to publish articles of a high academic standing using the strengths and potential of the digital medium.

Fees and waivers: The decision to publish an article in Internet Archaeology is wholly independent of payment or ability to pay the author charge (APC). Authors (or in most cases, their research funding bodies, affiliated institutions and/or other supporters) pay for APCs so that content is free to access. Fees vary by article (based on a combination of article length and technical requirements) but are payable only after a successful referee stage. We offer discounts to authors from member institutions (see below).
We are investigating alternative means to fund the publications of the significant numbers of unfunded archaeological researchers, but in the meantime, IA can offer a discount or full waiver to authors who do not have access to funds (including authors from developing countries). Please indicate in your initial proposal or contact us should you need to discuss waiver options, which will be negotiated individually with the corresponding author.

Institutional membership (for librarians): Institutional membership is optional and enables libraries to support the journal while also securing a discount on APCs.

Open access policy: Internet Archaeology believes that open access to archaeological research offers significant academic, professional and social benefits. Providing free, immediate, online access is the most effective way of ensuring that research can be read, integrated and built upon.

Peer review: Internet Archaeology usually operates double-blind peer review following initial screening (at the proposal stage) but we are open to experimentation e.g. open peer review. The journal uses anti-plagiarism software to ensure academic integrity.

Self-archiving policy: Internet Archaeology is a RoMEO Green publisher.
