Papers from the Institute of Archaeology (PIA) is a peer reviewed, open access journal that publishes research on all aspects of archaeology, museum studies, cultural heritage and conservation. We publish research papers and short reports. We also welcome reviews of conferences, exhibitions and books. We accept online submissions via the journal website. See author guidelines for further information or contact the editorial team.
Run by graduate students at the UCL Institute of Archaeology, the aim of PIA is to provide authors with experience in publishing articles early in their careers. We therefore place extra emphasis on the provision of peer review feedback and editorial assistance. We publish online as soon as articles are ready, so there is no delay in research being released and submissions can be sent throughout the year.
The cut off for submissions for the 2016 print journal closes mid January 2017. As 2017 is the 99th anniversary of votes for women in the UK we will be focusing on the discourse around aspects of gender as our lead article for the 2017 edition. Those interested in contributing to the forum around this lead article are welcomed.
The journal is fully indexed, blind peer-reviewed and fully open access. The PIA would like to thank all of our peer reviewers and copy editors for their time and invaluable expertise.
