Left Coast Press announces a new journal:
ETHNOARCHAEOLOGY: Journal of Archaeological, Ethnographic, and Experimental Studies welcomes submission of original manuscripts of no more than 30 double spaced pages that advance aspects of ethnoarchaeological and experimental research as well as furthering the professional interests by showcasing our contribution to our discipline.
All manuscripts are subject to anonymous peer review by knowledgeable scholars and, if accepted, may be subject to revision.
The first issue of this new peer-reviewed journal is in press and will be released April 2009 with articles by Michael B. Schiffer, Margaret Beck, James Skibo, and Hetty Jo Brumbach and Robert Jarvenpa.

This new journal, Ethnoarchaeology, a cross-cultural peer-reviewed journal, will focus on the present position, impact of, and future prospects of ethnoarchaeological and experimental studies approaches to anthropological research. The primary goal of this journal is to provide practitioners with an intellectual platform in which we may showcase and appraise current research as well as foreground theoretical and methodological directions for the 21st century. One need that Ethnoarchaeology addresses is that there is little that unifies or defines our subdiscipline, although there has been an exponential increase in ethnoarchaeological and experimental research in the past thirty years. With such growth we must explore what distinguishes these approaches as a subdiscipline, what methods connect practitioners, and what unique suite of research attributes we contribute to the better understanding of the human condition. The journal should be of interest to archaeologists, other anthropologists, historians, and specialists in pre-modern and contemporary technologies. In addition to research articles, the journal will contain book and other media reviews, periodic theme issues, and position statements by noted scholars.
Correspondence concerning article submissions should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Suggestions for book and media reviews should be sent directly to: email@example.com
We sincerely hope that you select our journal to publish your important research.
