[Internet Archaeology]

Advertising Guidelines

Internet Archaeology (IA) accepts advertising from commercial, not-for-profit and academic institutions. Our main criteria is that that what is being advertised should be of archaeological relevance and therefore of interest to our readers (We retain the right to refuse any banner which we deem unsuitable).

IA Reader/Subscriber Profile

Since switching to open access in September 2014, Internet Archaeology has never been busier. Readers are coming from right across the globe, but a substantial proportion come from high profile UK, USA and European universities.

Internet Archaeology receives around 200 individual visitors per day (averaging almost 3 minutes per visit per page). Unsurprisingly, the journal homepage sees the greatest amount of traffic. Traffic flow has always been consistent and has shown a steady upward trend since the journal started publishing in 1996.

As an academic research journal, Internet Archaeology mainly caters to an academically-minded audience, but this means that we can more effectively target this specific demographic. Advertising in IA should especially appeal to academic institutions and academic publishers.

Banner delivery
