The American Journal of Archaeology (ISSN 0002-9114; E-ISSN 1939-828X), the journal of the Archaeological Institute of America, is one of the world's most distinguished and widely distributed peer-reviewed archaeological journals. Founded in 1885, it publishes ground-breaking articles on archaeology and thoughtful book and museum exhibition reviews. The AJA reaches more than 50 countries and almost 1,000 universities, learned societies, departments of antiquities, and museums. The current Editor-in-Chief is Sheila Dillon (Duke University).
The AJA is published quarterly, in January, April, July, and October, in print and in electronic (PDF) formats and is available through membership in the Archaeological Institute of America or by subscription. The electronic AJA is hosted by JSTOR. Single articles and volume issues are also available for PDF purchase through JSTOR.
The AJA is indexed in ABS International Guide to Classical Studies, Anthropological Literature: An Index to Periodical Articles and Essays, Art Index, Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals, Book Review Index, Current Contents–Arts & Humanities, European Reference Index for the Humanities (ERIH), Humanities Index, Humanities International Complete, International Bibliography of Periodical Literature in the Humanities and Social Sciences (IBZ), Web of Science's Arts & Humanities Citation Index, and Wilson Web. The AJA is archived in Portico and CLOCKSS and is a member of CrossRef.
The AJA website offers open access book and museum reviews, volume indexes, and supplementary content and illustrations that complement published articles. Abstracts, tables of contents, and author profiles are also freely accessible. A powerful subject and keyword search tool allows for content discovery; a For Students section includes links to vetted archaeological websites, blogs, and multimedia and interactive projects.
The Society for the AJA was founded in the autumn of 1989 in order to expand the size and scope of the Journal, to make possible the timely publication of all articles accepted by the editors, and to ensure the future financial health of the Journal.
