[ 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).

Persons interested in becoming an assistant editor for an  open  region
should contact the coordinator.


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.

Information on assistant editors, addresses, and deadlines is also
posted at
