Assemblage is a journal first and foremost for graduate students, intended to provide writers with experience in the process of publishing academic work, present readers with stimulating material to consider and debate, and forge stronger ties within an increasingly fragmented graduate population. However, we do not allow this to compromise the quality of the research articles published, which are always subject to a double-blind peer review.
Our primary mandate is to include a range of material written by graduate students, and articles from established researchers on topics of interest to graduates. We also aim to disseminate information of general relevance and interest to those making their way through graduate degrees in archaeology and related subjects (particularly anthropology, geography, folklore, classics, and history). We hope that the production of the journal will be a learning process for all concerned.
Assemblage is completely open access, and free for both authors submitting articles, and researchers accessing current and previous issues.
