Editorial Policy

Ex Novo Journal of Archaeology promotes interdisciplinary research focusing on the multiple relations between archaeology and contemporary society. The scope of the Journal is to engage with modern perspectives on antiquity linking past and present, fostering the interaction between archaeological theory and alternative frameworks developed in other related fields, such as history, anthropology, political sciences, philosophy, social sciences and colonial studies. Ex Novo areas of interests span from prehistory to modern times across the world and include politics and archaeology, public archaeology, the legacies of colonialism and nationalism within the discipline, the articulation between local and global archaeological traditions, the discipline’s involvement in memory and identity, museum studies and restitution issues.

The Ex Novo Editorial Board welcomes the submission of manuscripts on any subject within the abovementioned framework. Submissions that present new information, or break new theoretical ground are especially welcome, as are articles that deal with methodological issues, offer innovative approaches for interpretation of current theoretical, political and heritage issues connected to the discipline, or explore the interconnections between archaeological practice and the importance of the past in current society. In addition to articles, Ex Novo publishes comprehensive reviews of the state of the discipline, forums, book reviews, archaeological site and museum exhibition reviews.

Manuscripts submitted to the Editorial Board are reviewed by appropriate experts without exception. While Ex Novo Advisory Board members often serve as reviewers, manuscripts are also screened by outside experts.
