Founded in 2016, Americae is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal dedicated to publishing the most recent findings of archaeological, ethnoarchaeological, and ethnohistoric research carried out within all regions of North or South America and the Caribbean. Our goal is to reach an international readership of professional archaeologists and other scholars.
We accept a variety of manuscript types, including “original research articles” (longer pieces that address broad audiences, such as discussions of method and theory, or major findings that are of great importance to larger regions), “reports” (shorter pieces that may address a more specialized audience, such as detailed descriptions of a specific excavation context, a new method protocol, etc.), “special collections” (a group of manuscripts that represent the proceedings of a symposium at a professional meeting), and “reviews.”
All manuscripts submitted to Americae are subject to an anonymous peer-review process that involves a minimum of two expert readers chosen from the review committee or external members. The scientific standard is guaranteed by submitting articles to an international committee of evaluators. We accept manuscript submissions in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French.
Our open access, electronic format allows for rapid dissemination to a broad audience. Articles are published to Americae’s website immediately upon final acceptance, rather than relying on a set number of issues published on a predetermined schedule. All articles may be printed free of charge as PDF files.
Americae is supported by the Institut des sciences humaines et sociales (InSHS) of the Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS).
