CALL FOR PAPERS: Indiana Archaeology

Please consider submitting any qualified papers by Dec. 31, 2013. That's plenty of time to dig up some work!

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology (DHPA) is currently accepting article submissions for Volume 9 (1) of Indiana Archaeology. The target audience of the journal includes: the general public, professional archaeologists, avocational archaeologists, and anyone else interested in the history and prehistory of Indiana. This journal continues a tradition of scholarly research, and important contributions, in the science of archaeology. The topics are primarily specific to Indiana, but they also have importance in the broader context of Midwestern archaeology.

Edited by Indiana State Archaeologist Dr. Rick Jones and Amy Johnson, Senior Archaeologist and Archaeology Outreach Coordinator, the journal includes articles written for a broader audience, while still maintaining a high scholarly constitution. In order to share information regarding the archaeology which is being conducted using monies from the United States Department of the Interior, National Park Service’s Historic Preservation Fund (HPF), a requirement of each archaeology HPF grant in Indiana is to submit an article summarizing the goals and accomplishments of the project. Additional articles and features/reports on archaeological topics or projects which did not utilize HPF funds are also included. Although the title of the document is Indiana Archaeology, the editors also welcome articles on archaeological topics related to surrounding states. The journal is one that can incorporate information on a regional level, and the public and professionals both can benefit by having access to these types of articles on archaeology in our neighboring states.

If qualified professional archaeologists, professionals in fields related to archaeology, avocational archaeologists, and knowledgeable individuals with expertise in relevant topics wish to tender a credible submission, please contact the editors for consideration prior to submission.  If individuals or groups have particular topics or ideas they wish to offer, the editors welcome suggestions.  For those who are interested in submitting an article for consideration, please submit your draft to the DHPA no later than Dec. 31, 2013.

This online journal will be available on the DHPA website. For questions regarding Indiana Archaeology, submissions of articles, or article specifications, do not hesitate to contact Amy Johnson at ajohnson@dnr.IN.gov or Dr. Rick Jones at rjones@dnr.IN.gov.
