Submission Information

The editors of Australasian Historical Archaeology accept submissions of original articles relevant to the research and practice of Historical Archaeology in Australasia and the wider region.

Editorial Process

Papers submitted to the editors will typically be sent to two independent referees. The editors will undertake to ensure that both author and referee remain anonymous. The referee will be asked to provide comments on the scholarly quality of the content of the paper, and on its suitability for publication in AHA. If necessary, they will be asked to recommend revisions required to make the paper acceptable for publication. The editors will then forward these comments to the author.

Once the author has addressed these comments, they will submit an electronic version of the final paper. This will be reviewed by the Editorial Assistant for stylistic consistency before the copy is type-set.

Authors will receive page proofs of their articles as a PDF, and are asked to return the corrected proofs promptly. No substantive changes can be made at that time.

Authors will receive a pdf copy of their paper.

Prospective authors should refer to the journal style guide, which can be downloaded here.
