Bulletin of the History of Archaeology (BHA) calls for applications for the position of assistant editor.
Bulletin of the History of Archaeology (https://www.archaeologybulletin.org/) is an international, peer reviewed, open access journal. BHA was inaugurated over 20 years ago as a forum to exchange research, information on on-going projects, and resources devoted to a growing interest in the histories of archaeology. As this interest has grown, BHA has become global in reach, and has taken an increasingly expansive definition of its subject matter and its place within wider historical contexts. To this end, the journal publishes research not only on the histories of archaeology strictly defined, but also on the subject as it intersects with related histories like those of collecting, colonialism, exploration, fieldwork, heritage, and museums. At the same time, BHA is particularly focused on building interdisciplinary collaborations, and publishes work that takes its methodological cues from fields including anthropology and historical anthropology, archaeology, art history, colonial and postcolonial studies, gender studies, global history, and the history, philosophy, and sociology of science.
BHA receives almost 20,000 users and 35,000 page views annually from the US, China, the UK, India, Australia, Italy, Canada, Germany, France and other countries. Its authorship is equally diverse.
BHA is indexed, among others, by the following services: the Web of Science (Emerging Sources Citation Index), the European Reference Index for Humanities and Social Sciences (ERIH PLUS), the Norwegian Register for Scientific Journals, Series and Publishers, and the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). Article Processing Charges apply, if papers are accepted for publication.
The role of assistant editor is a gratifying and furthering experience. It allows one to build on their networks, to contribute in disseminating data and research on topics one cares about and gain wider recognition in the field. The role is voluntary. No monetary compensation is included.
The responsibilities of the assistant editor include, among others, being assigned to specific submissions by the editor-in-chief and completing editorial processing, including peer review, communicating with the editor-in-chief and the editorial manager provided by the publisher in a timely manner, attracting appropriate submissions to the journal and liaising with the editorial board.
Desired skills are:
• To be very active in the field (e.g. attend conferences, publish, be a member of associations and committees)
• To interact with confidence
• To possess high organizational skills in order to process editorial work in a timely manner
• To maintain positive collaborations with all parties involved in the journal’s work
The position will be contractually agreed and can be held for a set time frame, at the end of which the assistant editor and the press will either renew the appointment or select a new individual.

Is it time to pull out that half-finished manuscript from your drawer? Or to write up the talk you gave at that zoom conference?
The Bulletin of the History of Archaeology (BHA) is accepting submissions for publication in 2021.
The journal publishes research not only on the histories of archaeology strictly defined, but also on the subject as it intersects with related histories like those of collecting, colonialism, exploration, fieldwork, heritage, and museums. At the same time, BHA is particularly focused on building interdisciplinary collaborations, and publishes work that takes its methodological cues from fields including anthropology and historical anthropology, archaeology, art history, colonial and postcolonial studies, gender studies, global history, and the history, philosophy, and sociology of science.
The BHA is published online. Articles are made available Open Access as soon as they are ready. Research shows that Open Access publications are viewed and cited more often and for a longer period than publications in subscription journals. Some studies report three times more views and others 89% more downloads. See the Plan S, for the latest initiative promoting Open Access by 14 national funders and 4 charitable foundations.
The BHA is indexed by the Web of Science (Emerging Sources Citation Index), the Norwegian Scientific Database, the European Reference Index for Humanities and Social Sciences (ERIH PLUS), Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), EBSCOHost, Google Scholar, CrossRef, JISC KB+, and SHERPA RoMEO.
Authors remain the copyright holders and grant third parties the right to use, reproduce, and share the article according to the Creative Commons license agreement.
If your paper is accepted for publication, you will be asked to pay an Article Publication Charge (APC) of £300, which can normally be sourced from your funder or institution. APCs cover all publication costs (editorial processes; web hosting; indexing; marketing; archiving; DOI registration etc. For a breakdown of costs, see here) and ensure that all of the content is fully Open Access. This APC is just 10-20% of some competitors. Many research funders and institutions now have open access funds available. Please, ask your department, library or funder to check your eligibility. Several other foundations, institutes, societies and associations offer publication grants based on subject relevance. Here are a few of them relevant to history, archaeology and material preservation and conservation. For more information on funding, feel free to get in touch at email@example.com.
Submit Now! We accept online submissions via our journal website. See Author Guidelines for further information. Alternatively, please contact the editors if you are unsure as to whether your research is suitable for submission to the journal.
