Message #270: From: AzTeC SW Archaeology SIG To: "'Matthias Giessler'" Subject: American Antiquity Current Research Date: Wed, 23 Jul 1997 05:09:34 -0700 [ The following corespondence between Dr. Majewski and the Assistant Editors for American Antiquity Current Research was edited slightly for publication here -- SASIG Ed. ] From: Teresita Majewski I have some good news. Late last year I finally received the go ahead from Tobi Brimsek at SAA to start up Current Research (CR) again. After lengthy discussions by the SAA Board over a several-year period, it was decided to place CR submissions on the SAA web site. While many may feel that it is still a mistake to take CR out of American Antiquity (AA), I feel that the web may be a good alternative. At any rate, I think it's very important to get CR up and running again, and that's why I'm writing to you now that I have something definite to say. At least for the time being, I'd like to try to change the web material four times per year. It would be different in that ALL regions could be represented every time, instead of only once a year as it was in AA. I propose that current research assistant editors send me information from their regions by the end of the second month of every quarter (i.e., at the end of February, May, August, November).

Deadlines Web materials for each region will be updated four times per year at the end of each quarter. Contributors should prepare and submit their information, following American Antiquity style, to the assistant editor for their region early in each quarter. Appropriate graphics will be considered. Contact the respective assistant editors regarding late submissions. Anyone wishing to submit information on an open region should send it directly to the coordinator, either via email or on disk in an IBM-compatible format, accompanied by hardcopy.
