TRAJ is a new open access journal that provides a venue for innovative and interdisciplinary research in the field of Roman Archaeology. The journal promotes the use of theoretical approaches to the Roman past and facilitates fresh interpretations of datasets, rather than solely the presentation of archaeological data.
To publish in the first volume of TRAJ, please submit an expression of interest and an article abstract of no more than 500 words by Friday June 16th 2017. We will inform authors whether a full manuscript is requested by Friday 23rd June. The deadline for manuscript submission for selected papers will be Friday September 1st 2017.
Papers will be selected for the journal on the basis of a double-blind peer review process. Reviewers are primarily drawn from the TRAJ advisory committee; however, other subject specialists will also be called upon to review submitted papers. Articles will be published individually online in 2018 once the peer-review and copy-editing processes are completed.
Throughout the review process priority will be given to papers presenting original archaeological research (focussed on the Roman period) that incorporates a significant theoretical element. Papers do not have be derived from the annual TRAC conference.
