New in June 2017 and updated in July 2018, the Society for American Archaeology has released a fully revised and updated publication policy and style guide in English and Spanish. The new guide provides updated submission requirements and policies, as well as procedures as they relate to our new publishing partner, Cambridge University Press. In the new guide you will also find more robust guidance for citing various electronic sources (websites, blogs, etc.), updated protocols for certain formatting issues (e.g., use of % in text, removal of periods in BP/BC/AD, use of leading zeros), the requirement to document data availability, and more. The submission and style requirements are effective immediately, so please be sure to carefully review the new guide before you submit a manuscript.
