For CfAS associates who work with spatial networks, transportation infrastructure and related topics, the Journal of Archaeological Science is soliciting papers for a special issue entitled “Novel Approaches to Past Transportation Systems. Continuity and Discontinuity from Antiquity to the Present,” under the guest editorship of Francesca Fulminante, Ulla Rajala, Carlo Citter, Tom Brughmans, and Joseph Lewis. The special issue will publish new research on urban networks and networked cities, both of which are emerging themes of research and planning. Understanding the routes and effects of ancient transportation networks is vital for making informed decisions for the present and future.
According to the announcement, there will be a fast publication process for this special issue. The journal supports both open access and subscription articles, so you can choose what is best for you. Publishing in a special issue often attracts more visibility and generates higher citations as experts in our field are keen to read about specific topics. Articles published will be grouped together on ScienceDirect, making it easier for other researchers in our community to discover your work.
Manuscripts will be due by 01 February 2024. You can read the full special issue scope here.
