New in June 2017 and updated in July 2018, the Society for American Archaeology has released a fully revised and updated publication policy and style guide in English and Spanish. The new guide provides updated submission requirements and policies, as well as procedures as they relate to our new publishing partner, Cambridge University Press. In the new guide you will also find more robust guidance for citing various electronic sources (websites, blogs, etc.), updated protocols for certain formatting issues (e.g., use of % in text, removal of periods in BP/BC/AD, use of leading zeros), the requirement to document data availability, and more. The submission and style requirements are effective immediately, so please be sure to carefully review the new guide before you submit a manuscript.

The Society for American Archaeology (SAA) invites applications for the editorship of American Antiquity—the first journal published by the Society, currently in its 84th volume. The term is for three years and may be renewed once with the approval of the Publications Committee and Board. The editorship falls vacant on April 16, 2021, when the current editor, Lynn Gamble, completes her term. The editorship is preceded by a one-year transition with the current editor, beginning with the editor-designate’s appointment in Spring 2020 until the start of the new editor’s term in Spring 2021.
American Antiquity has now been joined by Latin American Antiquity and Advances in Archaeological Practice, and all three journals are part of what is offered to SAA members and institutional subscribers. The SAA published its journals from the Society’s founding until 2017, when it entered into a partnership agreement with Cambridge University Press (CUP). This partnership enhances the journals’ visibility and impact worldwide and streamlines the production process for the editors. CUP has enabled the journals to utilize FirstView, Altmetrics, and remain current with digital innovations in scholarly publishing. American Antiquity has an impact factor of 1.671 (in 2018) and is ranked 25th in impact among 90 Anthropology journals. The SAA continues to own its journals and licenses an online submission tool (Editorial Manager) to facilitate reviews. Journal editors implement their own editorial visions during their terms. The SAA Board is strongly committed to providing the means by which all of the Society’s journals will flourish in changing conditions for academic publishing.
Submit application materials electronically by no later than January 1, 2020, to Tim Kohler, Chair of the SAA American Antiquity Editorial Search Task Force and Regents Professor of Anthropology, Washington State University, (509) 335-2698 (after 12/1/2019); E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
