Bioarchaeology of the Near East is published annually in one volume. The aim of the journal is to promote research on the history of human populations inhabiting the areas of Southwestern Asia (chiefly Mesopotamia, Syria, Palestine, Anatolia, Iran, and Egypt). It will publish original contributions in which methods of physical anthropology and bioarchaeology are used to answer historical questions. Three kinds of texts will be considered for publication: original papers, general review articles (especially those focusing on methodological issues) and short fieldwork reports. Papers of two first categories will be subject to peer review. Volume 2 (2008) includes contributions by Nathan K. Harper, Sherry C. Fox, Mateusz Baca, and Martyna Molak, as well as short fieldwork reprots.
