Iranian Journal of Archaeological Studies
University of Sistan and Balouchestan
The Archaeological Sciences Research Centre (ASRC) of the University of Sistan and Baluchestan (USB) was founded in 2009, with the aim to ensure interaction between archaeology and scientific disciplines engaged in studies of the past. The centre is the first and only Archaeological Sciences Research Centre in the whole country. Research in archaeological science has greatly influenced modern archaeology. Archaeologists gain significant insight and interpretation of data using techniques borrowed from physical and biological sciences and earth sciences. It has the potential to alter our understanding of the past.
For this reason, the ASRC of the University of Sistan and Baluchestan aims to support scientific methods in
archaeology in order to have a better understanding of past societies. The Iranian Journal of Archaeological
Studies (IJAS), is the first Iranian English Language peer reviewed journal in archaeology and interdisciplinary studies, also aims to publish articles relating to the archaeology of Iran and neighboring areas, including Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, Central Asia, the southern part of the Oman Sea and the Persian Gulf, Mesopotamia and Asia Minor. The Editorial Board of IJAS includes scholars from multiple countries and of multiple disciplines.
