Call for Papers for The Journal of the North Atlantic

The Journal of the North Atlantic (JONA) is a new multi-disciplinary,
peer-reviewed and edited archaeology and environmental history journal
focusing on the peoples of the North Atlantic, their expansion into the
region over time, and their interactions with their changing environment.
<> .

Since it will be a full-featured online-only journal, articles can be
quickly published and made available to researchers worldwide. The journal
has no publication fees, even for Special Issues and large Monographs. The
first issue is expected to be available in the spring of 2008. The journal
will be indexed in a full range of journal content databases. Journal
content can be conveniently accessed both by subscription and on a single
article basis.

The Journal of the North Atlantic will publish a wide diversity of
research papers, as well as research summaries and general interest articles
in closely related disciplines, which, when considered together, will help
contribute to a comprehensive multi-disciplinary understanding of the
historical interplay between cultural and environmental changes in the North
Atlantic world.

Specifically, the journal's focus will include paleo-environmental
reconstruction and modelling, historical ecology, archaeology, ecology of
organisms important to humans, anthropology, human/environment/climate
interactions, climate history, ethnography, ethnohistory, historical
analyses, discussions of cultural heritage, and place-name studies.

The journal will also publish field observations, notes, and
archaeological site reports, as well as book reviews, summaries of important
news stories, opinion papers, and free brief announcements of meetings,
symposia, conferences, and grant opportunities.

The journal is part of the database. This database allows
authors to include supporting files such as video, database, and audio
files, and to freely include color photographs and figures with articles.

We welcome your interest and questions! Joerg-Henner Lotze, Publisher
