California Archaeology publishes original papers on the archaeology of Alta California, Baja California, and adjoining regions (southern Oregon, western Nevada and Arizona). The journal is dedicated to advancing knowledge of California’s past and it will consider manuscripts that treat theory, method, and/or empirical findings from either the prehistoric or historic (text-aided) era. Ethnohistoric or ethnographic studies will be considered only if they make explicit connections to or have clear implications for the material record. Paleoenvironmental studies will be considered with the same caveat. Papers dealing with the recent past (< 50 years) will be given lower priority for publication.
The journal publishes four types of papers: articles that advance theoretical, methodological, and/or empirical knowledge of a major issue in the prehistory or history of California or an adjoining region; reports that present descriptive information on important and/or unusual discoveries; letters, that briefly comment on recently published research (commonly followed by a response); reviews, that briefly evaluate recently published books, DVDs, museum exhibits, or other materials with significant archaeological content.
The journal also publishes in each issue a News and Notes column, which includes information on recent field work, legal developments, and/or other events or activities related to the practice of archaeology in California and adjoining regions.
All articles and reports will be subject to peer review by no fewer than three reviewers as recommended by the Editor and members of the Editorial Board. Peer review of letters will be at the discretion of the Editor. Final decisions on all publications will be made by the Editor.
Members of the Editorial Board serve at the invitation of the President of the SCA and the Editor. The Editor is selected by the Board of the SCA and serves a term of three years. California Archaeology is the official journal of the Society for California Archaeology and is a benefit of membership in the organization.

The journal is published semi-annually in June and December.
