Aims & Scope


In Turkey, the number of interdisciplinary excavation and research projects incorporating scientific techniques is on the rise. A growing number of researchers are being trained in a broad range of scientific fields including but not limited to archaeobotany, archaeozoology, tool technologies, dating methods, micromorphology, bioarchaeology, geochemical and spectroscopic analysis, Geographical Information Systems, and climate and environmental modeling. The Turkish Journal of Archaeological Sciences aims to situate Turkish archaeology within this new paradigm and to diversify and disseminate scientific research in archaeology. 


The Turkish Journal of Archaeological Sciences is published twice a year. New methods, analytical techniques and interdisciplinary initiatives that contribute to archaeological interpretations and theoretical perspectives fall within the scope of the journal. The main aims and scope of the journal includes:


• Dissemination of scientific methods and analyses in archaeology, 

• Contributing to archaeological interpretation through multi-disciplinary approaches and methodologies,

• Contributing to debates needed to establish specialist scientific terminologies in Turkish language,
