We are pleased to announce that Palaeoindian Archaeology (PA) is currently accepting submissions for its 2019 issue. This issue will focus on the earliest settlement of northwestern South America.

The deadline for submissions for this issue is November 15th, 2019. The issue as a whole will be published in December, but individual articles may be published before that, as soon as the submission and peer-review process is complete.

Palaeoindian Archaeology is a peer-reviewed and open access journal focused on the research of archaeological sites and assemblages associate with the earliest human groups throughout the Americas and related contexts, as well as the initial settlement of the Americas.
