This blog contains information and opinions (mostly mine) on professional publishing issues in archaeology. I am especially concerned with quality control, Open Access, and communication with other disciplines.
I am an archaeologist who works on Aztec sites, with an interest in comparative research on cities, households, empires, and city-states. I view my discipline, archaeology, as a Comparative Historical Social Science.
