archaeological heritage is under threat. Illicit trafficking and the trade
of objects from European sites is recognised as an urgent matter. European
regulations are not strict enough or leave only small timeslices for reaction.

New Publisher for the
Journal of Archaeology
I am pleased to announce
that the EAA's Executive Board, at its recent Board Meeting in Frankfurt,
selected Maney to become our new publisher for the European Journal of
Archaeology. Our President, Fritz Lueth, consequently signed a publishing
contract with Maney last Thursday, witnessed by our Secretary, Mark Pearce,
and myself, as General Editor of the EJA. Amongst the various publishers
who submitted proposals to become our new publisher, Maney stood out for
sharing most convincingly our ambition to enhance further the quality,
reputation, readership and impact of our international peer-reviewed Journal.
Maney Publishing is based in the UK and specialises in publishing academic
journals, both in print and - importantly - online. They have a particular
strength in publishing archaeology journals, such as the Journal of Field
Archaeology, Environmental Archaeology and Public Archaeology. Maney will
be writing to you in due course about the new EJA for 2012, the first issue
of which will be published in April 2012, including details of how to access
the Journal online.
As for 2011, the print version
of the first two issues of EJA 14 (1-2) was distributed to Members attending
the Oslo meeting. The print version of EJA 14.3 (which is currently at
the printers) will be sent to you by post in late December, along with
a copy of EJA 14.1-2 for those of you who were unable to attend the Olso
meeting. The entire volume of EJA 14 will also be published online by Maney
before the end of December, and made available to you.
I believe that we have now
opened an exciting new chapter in the history of our Journal. Please remember,
it is your Journal. Its success depends upon a regular flow of new, high
quality submissions of articles on all aspects of European archaeology,
irrespective of period, region or topic. Both I and the Journal's dynamic
Editorial Board therefore look forward to receiving, and working with you
on the publication of, your next major article. With Maney's help, we can
guarantee that your work receives the widespread international recognition
that it deserves.
Do please write to me at
the following email address if you have any questions regarding the Journal
or ideas for new articles: Robin.Skeates@durham.ac.uk.
With best wishes,
General Editor, EJA
||The Archaeological Institute
of America (AIA) creates partnership with EAA
In September 2011, representatives
from the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) attended the 17th Annual
Meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists (EAA) in Oslo. Although
individual members from both the AIA and EAA have attended and presented
at each other's' annual meetings over the years, this was the first time
that the AIA was formally represented at an EAA Annual Meeting. AIA representatives
met with several members of the EAA Executive Committee and discussed the
possibility of greater cooperation and joint programming between the two
organizations. The AIA would like to see this as the beginning of a long
and mutually beneficial partnership that will allow for a greater and more
efficient exchange of ideas and scholarship between the two groups.
To mark the formal start
of this relationship, the AIA and EAA are embarking on several joint initiatives.
These include publicizing each other's events to their respective memberships,
encouraging members to submit papers and participate in each other's conferences,
and sending materials for publication and making announcements in each
other's newsletters. For immediate consideration by EAA members, the AIA
is happy to announce that EAA members who wish to attend the AIA Annual
Meeting in Philadelphia from 5-8 January 2012 will be able to do so at
the discounted rate generally reserved for AIA members.
Representatives of the AIA
look forward to attending the EAA meeting in 2012 and welcome EAA members
to all Institute events and programs.
