About this book series

Archaeology stands alone among the sciences in its attempt to enlighten us about the entire record of humankind. To cover such a broad range of time and space, archaeologists must ensure that their findings are integrated into broader spheres of scientific knowledge. The IDCA series aims to highlight the collaborative and interdisciplinary nature of contemporary archaeological research.  


Topics the series has covered include:

·       Paleoecology

·       Archaeological Landscapes

·       Statistical Approaches

·       Laboratory Methods

·       Human Biological and Cultural Evolution

·       Human Nutrition

·       Emergence of Agriculture and Pastoralism


For a copy of the proposal form, please contact Christi Lue (christi.lue@springer.com). Initial proposals can be sent to the Series Editor, Jelmer Eerkens (jweerkens@ucdavis.edu). Proposals should include:


·       A short synopsis of the work or the introduction chapter

·       The proposed Table of Contents

·       The CV of the lead author(s)

·       If available: one sample chapter


We aim to make a first decision within 1 month of submission. In case of a positive first decision the work will be provisionally contracted: the final decision about publication will depend upon the result of the anonymous peer review of the complete manuscript. We aim to have the complete work peer-reviewed within 3 months of submission.

This book series is indexed in SCOPUS.
