Maney Publishing to publish Journal of Conflict Archaeology from 2011
The Centre for Battlefield Archaeology is pleased to announce the re-launch of the Journal of Conflict Archaeology by Maney Publishing from 2011. Formerly published by Brill, with the final volume (5) now available, the journal will appear three times each year and is to be available in online and printed versions. Founded and edited by Tony Pollard and Iain Banks (University of Glasgow, UK), the Journal of Conflict Archaeology is devoted to battlefield and military archaeology and other spheres of conflict archaeology, covering all periods with a worldwide scope. Additional fields of interest include the archaeology of industrial and popular protest, contested landscapes and monuments, nationalism and colonialism, class conflict, the origins of conflict, forensic applications in war-zones etc. Submissions and proposals for papers are now being accepted and in the first instance can be submitted as abstracts or enquiries to the editors
([log in to unmask] or [log in to unmask]).
The Journal represents an exciting new discipline within Maney’s list of 17 journals in archaeology and heritage, and provides an important outlet for the best research in this fast-growing subject.
The Editors, Tony Pollard and Iain Banks, are based at the Centre for Battlefield Archaeology at the University of Glasgow, UK. The Centre is the first facility of its kind and has earned a reputation as an international centre of excellence for the burgeoning study of the archaeology of battlefields and other archaeological manifestations of human conflict.
Tony Pollard welcomed the new publishing partnership: “The new arrangement with Maney brings exciting opportunities to develop the journal according to refreshed aims and scope, and to increase the international reach through robust promotion and publication of the journal in electronic and printed format.”
Iain Banks added: “The move to three issues per year allows for faster turnaround of articles, which is good news for authors whose work will be published quickly, and for readers who will be accessing the very latest research.”
Michael Gallico, Managing Director of Maney, is “delighted to publish this acclaimed journal, edited from what is widely regarded as the leading international centre in this rapidly expanding field of study.”
Journal of Conflict Archaeology follows the acquisition of War & Society in 2010 which Maney publishes on behalf of the University of New South Wales, Australia. Along with Arms & Armour published on behalf of the Royal Armouries, Maney has formed a key collection of journals in the field of conflict and military studies.
