Access the AJA

The American Journal of Archaeology is published quarterly, in January, April, July, and October.

Subscribers have the option to receive delivery of the digital version or a combination (“combo”) of print and digital. The digital version includes options to read the journal as a PDF replica of the printed version, in full HTML, or as a downloadable ebook. The digital AJA is published in association with the University of Chicago Press. When you purchase an individual or student subscription, your electronic access includes the full run of AJA content.

The AJA is also available on JSTOR with a five-year moving wall. Check whether your university library has JSTOR access to the journal’s archival content.
