The AIA, with open access to the full text of current issues of the AJA, a coveted slot in the DOAJ, and now two more interesting features, is moving far, far ahead of the APA, which is still all about narrow-band publication.
AJA Online Forum
The American Journal of Archaeology is pleased to open the AJA Online Forum (www.ajaonline.org/forum/). The Online Forum complements Forum articles published in the AJA that discuss controversial, popular, or neglected topics in archaeology. The Online Forum is the place to continue the scholarly dialogue and the exchange of ideas. Online Forum contributions may take a variety of forms: short comments on specific points in the published articles, introduction of new material to the discussion, longer more formal presentation of views, or informal discussion. Naomi Norman, AJA Editor-in-Chief, encourages everyone to participate in the AJA Online Forum and, indeed, consider submitting Forum articles for publication in the Journal.
Museum Reviews Online
In 2004, Elizabeth Bartman was appointed Museum Exhibition Editor of the AJA. In addition to commissioning reviews of important exhibitions for the print edition of the Journal, additional reviews will be posted on the AJA website (www.ajaonline.org). The first of these is now available. Victor Cunrui Xiong has reviewed the Metropolitan Museum of Artâs âChina: Dawn of a Golden Ageâ? exhibit. Please visit the AJA website and click on the Museum Reviews link to read the entire article.
