Author Instructions


The journal publishes original/review papers which should comprise unpublished research and data interpretation or syntheses with focus on all scientific and technological aspects relevant to archaeological studies. All papers will be reviewed by at least two referees. Rejected papers will not be returned to the authors.

Manuscript Layout:

(Manuscripts should be written in English and organized in the following manner)
Title Name(s), affiliation(s) of the author(s): Name(s), affiliation(s) of author(s), the address and e-mail for each author and an asterisk to indicate the corresponding author Abstract:(no more than 150 words) Research objectives Experimental section:(this should contain the usual subsections) bsp; introduction, material, methodologies, experimental data, and results) Conclusion References Tables with titles Figures with caption

The manuscript must not have been published before, nor simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere.

Manuscript Preparation:

The manuscript should be double-spaced typed on the recto side only, with 3.5 cm wide margins. All pages must be numbered. Sections headings are numbered according to the international numbering system (1; 1.1.; 1.1.1; etc.). ‘Tables’ with titles and ‘figures’ with captions should be placed on ‘separate sheets’ at the end of the manuscript (see below for further details). They should not be placed in the text but must be referenced in the text at the appropriate place. ‘Punctuation’ peculiar to the English language should be used (semi-colons, colons, question marks, and exclamation marks are never preceded by a space in English). Abbreviations are punctuated. There is no space between opening and closing brackets and the following and preceding words.

Title Page:

The title page should contain the title of the paper (this must be brief but explicit), the forename (in full) and surname of each author, the authors’ affiliations (complete address, phone and fax numbers, e-mail) with their positions, and the name of the corresponding author.

Abstract Page:

An ‘abstract’ of about 150 words is required. Moreover, 5 to 7 ‘keywords’ should be provided (in small letters and bold type, separated by slashes).


All illustrations (graphs, diagrams, and photographs) should be numbered in the text, in italics, using Arabic numerals in order of appearance. E.g. (Fig. 1). If possible, these should be submitted electronically, in jpg format, with sufficient resolution (300 dpi for ‘illustrations’, 600 dpi for ‘line drawings’; these should also be ‘included’ at the end of the text Word file. Figures only available on paper should be submitted in separate sheets (authors’ names and number of figures should be finally penciled in blue on the reverse of originals). Previously published figures cannot be accepted. No illustration will be redrawn. Consequently, they must be good enough to allow direct reproduction. Original drawings on white paper are required. The same symbols and units must be used in figures, tables, and text. All composite figures should be mounted together and the parts labeled (a), (b), (c), etc. Page-size mounting photographs count as a single figure. All maps, field sketches, and photographs should include a metric bare scale. Illustrations will be published in the form of one column 80 mm wide (exceptionally 170 mm wide for complicated figures). So, ‘lettering’ of the original illustrations (one figure per A4 page) should be large enough to be clearly legible when the illustrations are reduced to a one-column format. All figures will be normally printed in black and white. Color illustrations may be published upon the approval of the Editor-in-Chief. Each figure should be briefly and clearly described. These ‘Figure captions’ should be presented together on a separate sheet, at the end of the paper. Remarks like «For explanation see text » should be avoided.


Each table should be typed, with special care, on a separate page included at the end of the text file. Captions must be integrated into the heading of the table which will comprise horizontal lines. Tables must not be redundant with figures. They should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals (Table 1 for instance) and must be cited in the text.


References should be limited to the minimum number necessary for the citation of pertinent material. References to internal reports, etc. are to be avoided: The statement ‘personal communication’ with a publication date in the text is generally preferable. References should be numbered with Arabic numerals enclosed in square brackets in the order they are cited in the text. All entries in the reference list must correspond to references in the text and vice versa, from [1] to [n]. The titles of journals should be abbreviated according to the standardized rules (cf ‘ISI’, ‘Current Contents’, for instance). Titles for which no abbreviation is given should be written out in full. The style and punctuation of the references should follow the format illustrated in the following examples (please note that the titles of journals are in Roman).
Book or published thesis: Author Name (s), (Year). Book (Thesis) Title, Publisher, Country.
Journal Article: Author Name (s), (Year). Title, Journal, Vol. (--), pp: -- - --.
Proceedings Article: Author Name (s), (Year). Research Titles, in: -------------, ------------- (Eds.),Publisher, Country.
Unpublished thesis: Author Name (s), (Year). Thesis Title, M.Sc. (Ph.D.), University of--------------, Country.
Proceedings of Experimental section:(this should contain the usual subsections) bsp; introduction, material, methodologies, experimental data, and results)


The corrected proofs must be returned to the publisher within ‘two days’ after receipt (only minor corrections or typographical errors will be accepted at this stage). Otherwise, the paper will be published with in-house corrections only.


5 reprints per contribution will be supplied, free of charge, to the corresponding author. ‘Additional reprints’ can be obtained at prices supplied by the publisher. An order form, sent with the proofs, must be completed and returned with the corrected proofs.


Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described has not been published before (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, or thesis), and it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. If and when the manuscript is accepted for publication, the authors agree to the automatic transfer of the copyright to the publisher.
