Publishing Principles

Articles can be written in Turkish, English, German or French, depending on the author’s preference, and they have to be original. It is understood that the author’s work has not been published elsewhere before and has not been submitted for publication by another publication. Articles within the framework of the abovementioned scope will be published after being reviewed by the scientific peer reviewers of the relevant subject. If necessary, articles will be returned to authors for reconsideration, addition, correction etc.

Despite any absolute restriction, authors are requested to submit articles not exceeding 20 pages of text and 12 plates of photographs and artwork. The text must be written in 12 pts “Times New Roman” with 10 pts footnotes at the bottom of each page and with continuous pagination. Two copies of the manuscript printed on A4 size paper must accompany the diskette or CD copy of the submitted article. In the event of another script occurring in the text of the article, the relevant script fonts must also be sent, together with the article on CD.

A summary in the same language as the article and not exceeding 3 A4 pages (approximately 3000 characters) must be attached to the article. Translations of these summaries will be undertaken by AKMED and will be sent to the authors for review/proofreading.

News of Archaeology from

ANMED, one of the annual periodicals by Suna & İnan Kıraç Research Institute on Mediterranean Civilisations, has been published bilingual in Turkish and English in Antalya since 2003.

Within the frame of the Institute’s foundation goals and priorities, the preliminary annual reports of excavations, surveys, restoration-conservation projects and other archaeological works by scientific missions undertaken in the region identified as Anatolia’s Mediterranean Areas, that is encompassing ancient Lycia, Pamphylia, Cilicia and Pisidia, constitute the scope of ANMED.

Since its initial publication eleven years ago, this informative bulletin, distributed to an extensive list of individuals and institutions in Turkey and abroad, has been received with enthusiasm. We remain committed to maintain its function as an annual reference source about present and projected archaeological activities in our region. However, beginning with the 2017 issue, ANMED will be published only in digital format so that it can reach a larger audience.
