Archaeological sciences are now more than ever a fully integrated aspect within the field of archaeology. With the enormous wealth of techniques, methodologies, theoretical approaches, and regional case studies that have been published over the past two decades, it is time that a journal dedicated to reporting the "state of the field" of various archaeometric sub-disciplines be issued. For example, review articles can cover the use of a specific technique or methodology within a class or type of materials, a region, or some combination thereof that reports on a body of scientific approaches to the materiality of the past. Beyond excavation, it is these techniques that have delivered some of the greatest archaeological discoveries in the past two decades, and regional or methodological syntheses stand to greatly enhance the dissemination of cutting edge case studies within a broader context. Additionally, Advances in Archaeomaterials will also welcome original research, as long as it is contextualized within an expanded introductory framework, in the fields of archaeological science, cultural and industrial heritage, science and technology studies including history of science, and conservation science-as long as the focus is archaeometric research on human-made materials. Finally, special issues can be published in certain circumstances (contact the editors with queries), and manuscripts of interest to a broad audience published in Chinese can be translated into English and published as an article.

This will be the only journal dedicated to:
  • Articles synthesizing archaeological science research results in a region
  • Articles synthesizing archaeological science research results for a method or technique
  • Articles synthesizing archaeological science research results of specific ancient material classes (organic and inorganic)
  • Original research in the fields of archaeological science, cultural and industrial heritage, science and technology studies including history of science, and conservation science
  • Publishing English translations of Chinese scholarship to make it available to non-Chinese audiences.
  • Special issues can be published in certain circumstances (contact the editors with queries).
