The Bulletin is the official publication of the Archaeological Society of New Jersey. Our Bulletin is among the largest of the annual publications offered by state-wide archaeological societies in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. Bulletins range from thematic to general issues. Our published content is robust, scholarly, educational, informative, fun, and interesting. Readers have the opportunity to learn about a range of archaeological and cultural studies. These include: historic ethnographic studies, 18th-century industrial sites, Native American camp sites, Pre-contact trade systems, historic farmsteads, pottery production, experimental archaeology, lithic technology and so much more. Please visit our Sales page to purchase print and digital bulletins.
We welcome articles on topics relating to New Jersey archaeology, both prehistoric and historic, as well as bioarchaeology and ethnohistory. In order to be considered for publication, articles can be any size, but must have appropriate references. Depending on content, articles accepted for publication may be peer reviewed. The preferred method of submission is a simply formatted Word document with separate illustration files (i.e., not embedded in the text document), via e-mail, but hard copies of shorter submissions can also be sent through regular mail to the editor’s address. Illustrations (photographs and/or drawings) must be of good quality with clear subject matter. Illustrations should be referenced in the text and provided with captions. If the article is accepted for publication illustrations must be provided as high-quality digital files or photographic prints. Please employ the bibliographic format used in the Bulletin which is based upon the Society for Historical Archaeology’s bibliographic format found here.
All manuscripts submitted are subject to correction or excision by the editor where such actions do not alter substance or intent.
Our next Bulletin to be released will be a three-volume issue containing Bulletin Nos. 71-73 for calendar years 2016-2018. This volume is expected to be in print in early 2019.
Please send your Bulletin submissions to Bulletin editor, Richard Veit, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the heading Bulletin Submission as the Subject line.
