AURA

A new journal has been announced: the Athens University Review of Archaeology (AURA), an international, peer-reviewed archaeological journal published biannually by the Department of Archaeology and History of Art of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. The journal will publish original papers in Greek or English about archaeology, art and material culture of the broader Hellenic world, from early Prehistory to Modern times, as well as about Environmental Archaeology, Archaeometry, Museology, and Computer Applications in Art and Archaeology. The range of studies will include synthetic works, reports on excavations and field surveys, studies of archaeological material or works of art, various case studies, as well as preliminary publications of on-going research projects dealing with the scientific areas described above. There will also be an AURA Supplement series, comprising monographs in Greek or English with the same areas of interest as the journal, and will include monographs, edited volumes, conference proceedings, and publications of excavations, archaeological material or works of art. Both AURA journal and AURA Supplements are open-access publications published electronically as a PDF file, with printing restrictions.
