ABOUT

The aim of the journal ARWA (Archaeological Research in Western & Central Asia) is to promote interdisciplinary and cross-regional research on the past human groups living in the cultural zone extending from the Mediterranean Sea to the Indus Valley, linking archaeology with history, philology, art history, cultural anthropology, heritage studies, biology, geology and applied sciences. This is a full Open Access journal that focuses on transregional research on any period from the Palaeolithic to the end of the Achaemenid period.

The journal will be comprised of:

1. Perspective papers that offer a comprehensive review of the most important current problems in the archaeology of the region. After peer review, these papers will be made available online for a few months before final publication and in that time other authors may send comments / replies that will be published together with the original perspective paper.
2. Original research papers of no more than 8.000 words. Research papers should follow the standard format of an archaeological paper, with relatively high limit of figures and/or tables. Papers will be submitted to a double-blind peer review process.
