Scope of the journal
Interdisciplinary Egyptology is a peer-reviewed journal that reports on interdisciplinary research carried out in Egyptology. The journal strives to include Egyptological research with broad scientific scope, and will only publish research that incorporates two or more related and intertwined disciplines to address a research question. Only submissions that adhere to current ‘gold standards’ in scientific, archaeological and historical analysis will be published.
IntEg promotes research that has a strong foundation in modern historical and archaeological theory, the natural sciences and stringent fieldwork protocols. IntEg is proud to include research from a broad chronological and geographical scope, in-so-far as it directly relates to the study of Egyptology as a modern, scientific discipline.
Publishing Eligibility checklist:
In keeping with our mission statement, articles that are accepted for publication in IntEg will adhere to the following checklist:
1. Research must be of the highest scientific standards, and based on reproducible methods.
2. Research must be inter-, cross-, multi- or trans- disciplinary in nature and meaningfully involve at least two fields of related research (although this requirement can be discussed in advance of submission with the editors should the author feel that their research would still be of interest to IntEg). As such, we will not consider intradisciplinary research for publication.
3. The journal has no chronological limitations. We accept research from the prehistoric to early-Modern periods of Egyptian history. Historiographical research and research on current perceptions of Egyptology are also welcomed.
4. The journal’s geographical scope is Egypt and its neighboring regions, where the research is relevant to Egyptology in its broadest sense. This includes, but is not limited to, the Near East, the Aegean and Africa where clear cultural and/or historical interactions are discernible.
5. In the event of research presenting scientific analyses (e.g. chemical analysis, absolute dating etc.), full
disclosure must be given as to the source of the material for analysis and a statement addressing the permissions obtained to carry out such research. IntEg will NOT accept for publication any scientific analyses of objects or material that would not be permissible for analysis based on the current Egyptian Antiquities Law (Law 117/1983) and that are in direct contradiction to IntEg’s Ethics Statement.
