The Theoretical Roman Archaeology Journal is a new open access journal published by the Open Library of Humanities. TRAJ 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. The journal’s geographic focus is the whole of the Roman world, including areas beyond the frontiers where Roman influence was evident. The journal’s temporal scope is from the Bronze Age to the Late Antique period; however, the subject of most contributions will usually range from the third century BC to the fifth century AD. Manuscripts which derive from both TRAC events and open submissions are both welcomed.
In order to publish in the second volume of TRAJ, please submit an expression of interest and an article abstract of no more than 500 words by Friday, June 15th to firstname.lastname@example.org. The abstract should be in the form of a word document without name, email address, or affiliation.
Authors will be informed whether a full manuscript is requested by the end of June 2018. The deadline for manuscript submission will be October 19th, 2018. Papers will be selected for the journal on the basis of a double-blind peer review process.
Reviewers are primarily drawn from the TRAC Advisory Panel; however, other subject specialists will also be called upon to review submitted papers. Articles will be published individually online. Throughout the review process priority will be given to papers presenting original Roman archaeological research incorporating a significant theoretical element. Articles must follow the TRAJ Research Data Policy, with a word count of 5,000-10,000 words.
Please forward all enquires to email@example.com and refer to https://traj.openlibhums.org for further information.
