New Student Journal: International Journal of Student Research in Archaeology

There is apparently a new archaeology journal in the works specifically for students. I came upon a flyer online.

As it says, this was a call for papers for the first issue, and the deadline has already passed. But, the idea of having a student journal is great, and I wish them the best of luck.

As you can see at the bottom of the flyer, they have a Facebook page and a Twitter feed. The also have a webpage, although I had to eat cookies before it would function.

I love their logo, which features a quill pen crossed over a trowel. If the message is that the pen is mightier than the trowel, I agree: Reporting is more important than digging.

I'm not sure where the funding comes from, but it's going to be open access without page charges.

Everything looks very professionally set up. I look forward to the first issue!
