Publishing with Us

The EXARC JOURNAL is the leading journal for those involved in experimental archaeology or archaeological open-air museums, featuring the latest developments in fieldwork, academic research, museum studies, and living history interpretation. You are welcome to publish with us -there is no fee for publishing through EXARC and, equally, we do not pay authors for their contributions. 

The Journal is published quarterly. The deadlines for the reviewed articles are: 15th of January for the May Issue, 15th of April for the August issue, 15th of July for the November issue and 15th of October for the February issue. All articles go through a first round of editing before they are submitted for reviewing. The authors are then consulted about any suggested changes and will have approximately three weeks to react to reviewers’ comments.

Twice a year, chosen articles are published in an abridged form in the EXARC Journal Digest. The authors are first contacted for permission to republish their article, then they receive an abridged version of their article for their approval.

Articles for Mixed Matters are accepted throughout the year and are immediately edited. Again, authors are consulted with on any changes. This section is updated regularly to bring you topical news. Articles for this section are generally published within two to four weeks of submission.

Contributions are accepted in English. We would appreciate it if the texts are accompanied by summaries of up to 10% of the length of the article.

The contributions should be sent by e-mail to J. Kateřina Dvořáková.

The text should be submitted in Word for Windows, preferably DOCX format, using Times New Roman font, size 12, 1.5 spacing, double spacing between paragraphs, no indentation. Please see the attached general style sheet for more detail.

References should be placed in the text using the Harvard referencing system (e.g. Tichý 2001, 25-27). Examples can be found online at:
A full bibliography should be provided at the end of the contribution. The bibliography should contain only works referred to in the text. 

Accompanying illustrations (charts, tables, graphs, photographs, linear drawings) should be submitted independently from the text, clearly numbered, and with captions. Charts, tables, and graphs should be in Excel.

It is the responsibility of the author(s) to check all copyrights and get permissions where needed. EXARC will not publish images where this is not clarified.

Please do not send texts with embedded pictures.

Photographs should be in TIFF or JPEG with a resolution of 300 dpi for a 15 cm wide picture, linear drawings also in TIFF or JPEG with a resolution of at least 600 dpi for a 15 cm wide picture. The number of illustrations is not restricted, as long as they are relevant. 

As the contact between the authors and the editors is via e-mail, we would like to ask them to keep us updated on their e-mail addresses for the purpose of sending proofs.
For any further contribution, please contact J. Kateřina Dvořáková.
