The Journal of Arizona Archaeology, Volume 4 (No. 1), celebrates 50 Years of the NHPA in Arizona. The papers were initially delivered as part of the Arizona  Archaeological Conference in 2014 and Chris P. Garraty is the guest editor for the issue. To facilitate the review process the editorial panel has been increased to nine people, and now includes Su Benaron, Todd Bostwick, J. Simon Bruder, Chris Garraty, Billy Graves, Chris Loendorf, Doug Mitchell, Alanna Ossa and Josh Watts. The volume is available electronically on the AAC Website in the Member's Access section and the paper copy is scheduled to be published in early Spring of 2017. My thanks to the guest editor, the editorial panel and the authors of the papers for the contribution of their time and professional expertise in bringing the next issue of the Journal to press.

Mission Statement

The Journal of Arizona Archaeology is a peer-reviewed journal that focuses on the presentation of emerging ideas, new methods, and current research in Arizona archaeology. It endeavors to be a forum for the scholarly, yet simple communication of research and management related to Arizona's archaeological record. The journal is published twice a year by the Arizona Archaeological Council (AAC). At least one issue per year is devoted to the theme of the AAC annual fall conference. The conference issue (or issues) is overseen by a guest editor. The remaining issues of the journal are intended for open submissions. The frequency of general submission issues is dependent on the number of appropriate manuscripts received throughout the year and the workload of the editorial staff. The journal is one benefit of membership in the AAC. Individual membership rates in the AAC are $30 per year.
