Mediterranean Archaeology & Archaeometry (MAA) is converted to full online journal with free access to whole texts as pdf files. The printed version (2001-2015) is kept only if authors ask for back issues or if individuals or libraries require printed volumes.
As from 2015 frequency is increased to 3 times per year - April, August, December. The Journal will keep the rapid reviewing procedure following the standard double blind review and ensures swift publication of high quality papers in innovation or important applications and excavation reports related to the Mediterranean region.
MAA is an interdisciplinary International Journal issued by The University of the Aegean, Department of Mediterranean Studies, Rhodes, Greece. MAA is published since 2001 and from 2008 is operating in updated format.
The international journal MAA "Encourage international discussion on the coupling between archaeology and archaeometry in their broader sense, initiating forums of discussion on the establishment of widely accepted criteria of correct approach and solution of particularly current and future archaeological problems."
It focuses in the Mediterranean region and on matters referred to interactions of Mediterranean with neighboring areas, but presents an international forum of research, innovations, discoveries, applications and meetings, concerning the modern approaches to the study of human past.
The Editors will welcome contributions from all parts of the World focused on the Mediterranean region and interactions with neighboring regions.
