Academic journals are one of the most important means for scholars and researchers to share their research with the academic community. Being able to publish your research requires skills for the craft.

The aim of this workshop is to provide hands on training in writing good articles for archaeological journals. Four international journal editors: Rob Witcher from Antiquity, Robin Skeates from the European Journal of Archaeology, Liv Nilsson Stutz from Archaeological Dialogues, and Kristian Kristiansen, formerly European Journal of Archaeology and Journal of Danish Archaeology, will provide comments and present lectures on international publishing.


Course work

Before the course starts, each PhD student is to prepare and pre-circulate a draft text for a supposed journal. During the workshop, each participant will present their text, and the panel and participants will provide constructive critique and comments for improving the text.
