  European Journal of  Archaeology (EJA) 

Aims and Scope 
.. ....
The European Journal of Archaeology - the international, peer-reviewed journal of the European Association of Archaeologists - aims to publish the best new archaeological research undertaken in and around Europe.

Articles cover a wealth of topics, ranging from major reviews of the prehistoric and historic archaeology of Europe and neighbouring regions, to reports on key archaeological discoveries set within a European context, to cutting-edge research and debates on science-based archaeology, archaeological method and theory, public archaeology and the history of archaeology, to interviews reflecting upon the life and work of significant European archaeologists. All articles are published with short, accessible abstracts in English, French and German. 

Thought-provoking reviews are also a key feature of the Journal, including: commissioned book reviews that summarize and assess new publications, evaluations of museum exhibitions and archaeological films, and critical commentaries accompanying articles published in the Journal.

Special issues or sections of the Journal are sometimes also published, comprising collections of articles relating to topics of broad interest to European archaeologists.

The design and management of Journal was significantly enhanced in 2011, with a revised format, higher quality paper and colour illustrations, an energized Editorial Board, and a timely publication schedule, which now includes rapid online publication ahead of print issues.

At the same time, the Journal still adheres to its founding principles. It seeks to promote open debate amongst archaeologists committed to an idea of Europe in which there is more communication across national frontiers and more interest in interpretation. And it publishes not only new data and interpretations, but also encourages debate about the role archaeology plays in society, how archaeology should be organized in a changing Europe, and about the ethics of archaeological practice.
