Processing of Contributions:

All contributions to Australian Archaeology are triple blind reviewed (by two external reviewers and one member of the Editorial Advisory Board), with the Editors also reviewing all contributions. The review process typically takes three months to be completed. As is the case for any refereed journal, authors will usually be asked to make revisions to their manuscript. If substantial revision is recommended the Editors may require that a manuscript be re-reviewed before a final decision is made. Once a paper is accepted in its final form, page-proofs will be sent to the corresponding author for approval. Final acceptance of manuscripts for publication is at the discretion of the Editors. For paper submission instructions see the Style Guide.
