How to submit an article to “Archaeology in Jordan”
November 2, 2019
Dear former and future “Archaeology in Jordan” contributors,
Following the success of the Archaeology in Jordan (AIJ) Newsletter for 2016 and 2017 Seasons, published in November 2018, ACOR is continuing in its efforts to produce its next online edition.
The next edition of “Archaeology in Jordan” will continue to present short reports of the highlights of your fieldwork projects in Jordan. Your submissions should cover the highlights of your 2018 and/or 2019 fieldwork seasons; if you had seasons in both years, then you should report concisely on the results from the two seasons in one short submission. These reports should be on fieldwork projects only, such as excavations, surveys, onsite conservation/preservation/cultural resource management efforts, etc., which were conducted between January 2018 and December 2019. We also welcome submissions related to active publication projects of completed fieldwork. If the article is a joint one, please provide full names, academic affiliation, and emails for all contributors. The aim of this new online edition is to raise greater academic awareness about archaeological work being undertaken in Jordan, and also to make it more accessible to a wider audience.
The general guidelines for submission are given below and you may also consult the most recent Archaeology of Jordan Newsletter as a model. Please note that final decisions on publication will be made by the editors.
Submissions should be 600 words maximum. Longer articles will not be accepted. Also due to space concerns we cannot accept more than one reference per contribution. Texts should be submitted in English as Microsoft Word documents. They should be typed in a 12 pt. font size and double-spaced. You should indicate in the text your preferred location for any graphics (i.e., [Fig. 1]).
Please submit no more than two illustrations (photos, plans, or line-art) for consideration. Please ensure that all graphics have clear file names and that you include a separate list of captions that correctly corresponds to the graphic file names and in-text call-outs and make sure you have provided the correct credit line. Authors are responsible to obtain prior permission to use selected images in this online publication. Please rank the graphics in order of your preference.
Images: Images may be in these formats: .tif, .psd, .ai, .eps and .jpg. Submit all photographs in their original state as taken by the camera when possible (i.e., do not convert color to black & white, or resize). All photos should have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi for an image that is 6 inches (15.5 cm) wide; plans and line art should have a minimum resolution of 1200 dpi.
The deadline for receipt of submissions is February 1, 2020.
Please arrange to send your submissions to email@example.com. We suggest that you bundle your submissions and use an option for transferring large files (Dropbox, WeTransfer, etc.) if possible. If you need to send your files as large attachments to emails, please contact Dr. Jack Green at firstname.lastname@example.org before you send the emails. Contributors who are in Jordan may also deliver your materials on disk or flash drive to the ACOR office in Amman. ACOR will send you confirmation emails once your materials have been received and accessed.
Please feel free to contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions about the submission guidelines or process.
Please send your submissions as early as possible! Again, note that articles of more than 600 words will not be accepted.
We would also be grateful for your assistance in notifying any of your colleagues about this call-for-submissions as well, just in case they are not on our email distribution list.
We look forward to receiving the summaries for your project and for submitting with us to the Archaeology in Jordan Newsletter.
