[Internet Archaeology]

About Us

Internet Archaeology is an 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 and was awarded the Directory of Open Access Journals Seal in recognition of our high standards in publishing best practice, preservation and openness in 2015.

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.

Code of Conduct: Internet Archaeology adheres to OASPA's code of conduct.

Copyright/Licencing policy: IA disseminates content under a Creative Commons Attribution licence (CC-BY) 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: 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. Authors should include a budget for article processing charges (APCs) where this is an allowable expense. Fees vary by article (based on a combination of article length and technical requirements which in our case can of course vary significantly, but see our editorial policy for an illustration). Fees are payable only after a successful referee stage. We also offer discounts to authors from member institutions (see below).

Fee waivers: We are investigating alternative means to fund the publications of the significant numbers of unfunded archaeological researchers but in the meantime, Internet Archaeology can offer a discount or full waiver to authors in case of economic hardship or to those who do not have access to publication funds. 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. As an open access journal, Internet Archaeology creates more value than it did as a closed version. Internet Archaeology has been awarded the Directory of Open Access Journals Seal in recognition of our high standards in publishing best practice, preservation and openness.

Open Badges: Internet Archaeology supports open practices and recognizes the value of researchers sharing their research results in ways that allow others to reproduce their findings and reuse their methods and data. Open Badges are awarded in in recognition of authors' open scientific practices.

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.
