About Interdisciplinaria Archaeologica

Journal profile

The focus of Interdisciplinaria Archaeologica – Natural Sciences in Archaeology is the ongoing cooperation of archaeology with the natural sciences and other disciplines. The journal’s interests include bioarchaeology (archaeobotany, archaeozoology, archaeogenetics and anthropology), geoarchaeology (geochemistry, micromorphology, petrography, material analyses, environmental reconstruction), dating methods in archaeology and other fields such as computational archaeology, digital documentation etc. We publish contributions that aim to solve archaeological questions utilizing the methods of the natural sciences and other fields. The birth of IANSA reflected the growing need of scientists in Central Europe to access an international journal focused on the methods of the natural sciences and interdisciplinary cooperation in archaeology. The growth of natural science methods within archaeology has been very dynamic. It is anticipated that our target group of readers will also grow in the coming years and, along with traditional archaeological institutions, will gradually include specialized natural science institutions (natural science departments associated with archaeology focused museums, specialized laboratories, etc.) in the Czech Republic and abroad.

The journal is strictly scientific, peer reviewed, and publishes only in British English. Each article is reviewed by two specialists in fields related to the content of the article. IANSA is listed in journal indexes such as Scopus, ERIC and DOAJ. A hardcopy of the journal is issued semi-annually, on glossy paper, with an initial circulation of 500 pieces. It is available in electronic format on the journal’s web page

The IANSA Journal does not require any article processes charges nor submission fees from authors. All articles published in the IANSA Journal are licenced under the Creative Commons CC BY 4.0 licence.
