A Note about the Proceedings

Any paper or poster presented at the Radiocarbon & Archaeology 9th International Symposium can be submitted for publication in the Proceedings.

The Proceedings will be published in the journal Radiocarbon (radiocarbon.org). As with all papers in Radiocarbon, the Proceedings will be peer-reviewed. The published papers will also appear online via Radiocarbon’s Cambridge Core site (http://cambridge.org/RDC).

Authors will not receive a free printed copy but can purchase one (subject to availability) through the journal’s publisher, Cambridge University Press (cindy.eyler @sheridan.com). 

The Proceedings should be published before the end of 2020. More details will be provided upon submission of a manuscript. Please contact Managing Editor Kimberley Elliott at kimelliott @email.arizona.edu or Editor in Chief Tim Jull at jull @email.arizona.edu if you have any questions. We look forward to working with you.
