The new international refereed journal, Archaeology of Food and Foodways by Equinox Publishing, launching in 2020, invites submissions for the first issue due to be published June 2020. Two issues per volume year will be published.
Journal Aims and Objectives
Archaeology of Food and Foodways is an international refereed journal showcasing original scholarly work on the relationship between human sustenance and society. This publication foregrounds the dynamics between food and culture, food and environment, and shifts in foodways over time, covering time periods from prehistory through the 19th century.
Archaeology of Food and Foodways encourages the submission of original work by archaeologists, historians, Classicists, and other scholars who address methodologies, theories, historical trajectories, cross-cultural comparisons, and controversies surrounding material culture and past foodways. Also encouraged is the submission of work by scholars and other specialists who have applied archaeological findings to such domains as public policy, culinary arts, and dietary regimes.
Archaeology of Food and Foodways accepts submissions of original Research Articles, Thematic Essays, Applied Articles, Photo Essays, and Thematic Issues. All submissions must have an archaeological focus, but may elucidate experimental archaeological or ethnoarchaeological work if applied to a specific archaeological problem, or incorporate archaeological research into contemporary applications. Submissions may have any geographical focus. AFF does not publish short notes, descriptive excavation reports, limited artifact studies, or book reviews.

Types of Articles
Research Articles: AFF publishes submissions of original research by archaeologists, historians, Classicists, and other scholars who address methodologies, historical trajectories, cross-cultural comparisons, and controversies surrounding material culture and past foodways. AFF welcomes submissions that make use of any form of material culture or scientific methodologies, covering time periods from prehistory through the end of the 19th century. Papers of a more methodological focus will also be considered as long as they have an archaeological basis.
Thematic Essays: AFF publishes submissions of original work by scholars addressing theoretical convergences, historical trajectories, paradigmatic shifts, broad cross-cultural comparisons, and debates in foodways scholarship
Applied Articles: AFF also encourages the submission of work by scholars and other specialists who have applied archaeological findings to such domains as public policy, culinary arts, tourism industries, food revitalization projects, religious practice, and dietary regimes.
Photo Essays: AFF publishes photo essays that document experimental archaeology, ethnoarchaeology, and applied ethnography to enhance understandings of foodways in the past or demonstrate applied techniques formulated through archaeological research.

Special issues or special clusters within the usual journal format will focus on a particular thematic interest, and include 3-7 articles in total.
