If you are an author who would like to publish an article in the Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland or Scottish Archaeological Internet Reports (SAIR), or if you would like to publish a book with us, you can find more information here.
Articles in the Proceedings should primarily present original ideas, interpretations and discoveries or results of research which are likely to stimulate discussion and advance understanding. We do not normally publish papers longer than c 15,000 words.
Scottish Archaeological Internet Reports is an Open Access journal which is intended for longer projects (generally more than c 20,00 words) and those which require large volumes of data in order to achieve their purpose. All SAIR projects must come with external funding to cover the cost of making the publication freely available at the time of publication. These costs vary by the length and complexity of the project; please see further information on our Open Access services and policy page.
We welcome book proposals for projects of between 50,000 and 100,000 words that present major studies of important subjects to both an academic and wider interested audiences. The Society promotes online Open Access publication for excavation reports and conference proceedings.
