Iranian Journal of Archaeological Studies




The Iranian Journal of Archaeological Studies (IJAS) is an international peer-reviewed open-access biannual journal devoted to the field of archaeology, published by the Archaeological Sciences Research Centre (ASRC) of the University of Sistan and Baluchestan (USB). The journal aims to engage with the application of scientific techniques and methodologies to all areas of archaeology, considering the research ethics and academic rules and regulations. It focuses on the results of the application of scientific methods to archaeological problems and debates of wide interest. It also provides a forum for reviews and scientific debate of issues in scientific archaeology and their impact in the wider subject.

The Iranian Journal of Archaeological Studies (IJAS) publishes papers of excellent archaeological sciences. Reviews, case studies, and short papers are welcomed where an established or new scientific technique sheds light on archaeological questions and debates. The research must be demonstrably contextualized within national and/or international contexts. The application of analytical techniques must be underpinned by clear archaeological or methodological research questions and set within established and/or developing research frameworks. Submission of papers focused on the analysis of single or small numbers/groups of archaeological objects is strongly discouraged, unless of exceptional quality and international significance. Datasets must be statistically robust.

All papers submitted to the Iranian Journal of Archaeological Studies (IJAS) are subject to a double-blind reviewing process. The submitted manuscripts will be published after a thorough review and the editorial board's approval. Researchers are highly appreciated if they visit this website, register, submit and set up their papers based on the Instructions to Authors. Therefore, visiting in person or calling the journal office is not recommended, so all connections with authors and reviewers are made through the website.
