Position of Book Review Editor(s) for the American Journal of Archaeology

The Book Review Editor of the AJA receives books for review directly from the publishers, decides which books should be reviewed, invites reviewers, edits the reviews, and submits reviews for each issue to the Director of Publishing. Final copy editing is done by the AJA Editor.

AJA publishes between 20 and 25 book reviews, with a limit of 25,000 words, in each quarterly issue.

The term of the new Book Review Editor will begin formally on January 1, 2017, with a period of transition from July through December 2016 when the new Editor will overlap with the old Editors.

The Book Review Editor serves at the pleasure of the AJA Editor-in-Chief for a term of three years, which may be renewed. The position of Book Review Editor has often been held jointly by two people. The Book Review Editor receives a quarterly stipend from the AIA. Some additional support (student assistant, office space, mailing costs) is expected from the Book Review Editor’s home institution.

    A record of publication in a field of the art and archaeology of ancient Europe and the Mediterranean world from prehistoric to Late Antique times.
