The journal's first editor-in-chief (1996–1999) was Alan Vince. Since 1999 it is edited by Judith Winters.[7][8][9]

Journal content makes use of the potential of internet publication to present archaeological research (excavation reports, methodology, analyses, applications of information technology) in ways that could not be achieved in print, such as searchable data sets, visualisations/virtual reality models, and interactive mapping.[10] The journal's content is archived by the Archaeology Data Service.

HistoryEdit

The journal was established in 1995 with funding from the Jisc's Electronic Libraries[9] programme and initially explored a subscription model.[11][12] In September 2014, editor Winters announced that the publication had adopted an open access approach and that all past and future content would be freely available.[13]
