New in June 2017 and updated in December 2023, 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 publishing partner, Cambridge University Press. In the updated guide you will find more robust guidance regarding diversity and inclusivity in language and for citing Indigenous and Traditional Knowledge and various electronic sources (websites, blogs, etc.), updated protocols for certain formatting issues (e.g., references cited styling and including issue numbers for all periodicals), information regarding the requirement to document funding, data availability, and competing interests, 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.
