The Scottish Archaeological Journal is published to further the study of Scotland and northern Britain, by publishing papers, notes and reviews dealing primarily with the archaeological evidence. The Journal can accommodate papers reporting on fieldwork, discussions of collections housed in northern museums and synthetic discussions on any topic that is relevant to the understanding of Scottish archaeology and history. While maintaining a special responsibility for western Scotland, the journal aims to serve as a medium for co-ordinating the work of archaeologists with that of historians and scholars in scientific disciplines throughout northern Britain.
Book reviews, a distinctive feature of the journal since its establishment (as the Glasgow Archaeological Journal) in 1969, provide a critical perspective on Scottish archaeology and a well-established forum for scholarly debate. In addition to books, recent volumes of the journal have reviewed new museums, exhibitions and research on Scotland published in periodical literature.
The Journal is available to Members as part of their annual subscription, and is also available direct from the publisher, Edinburgh University Press (EUP).
Members of the Society may also access the electronic version of the Journal through the EUP website. Members should contact the Membership Secretary for login details.
