Anatolia Journal primarily aims to publish scientific and original studies on Anatolian Archeology. In line with this purpose, it aims to carry the recognition and visibility of Anatolian archeology to international scientific platforms and to share them on these platforms. Thus, it aims to contribute to and develop archaeological knowledge and the science of archeology not only within the borders of modern Turkey but also at the international level. In line with this purpose, it has been contributing to the development of archeology at home and abroad since 1956.


Geographically, it covers Anatolia and the surrounding cultural regions. However, it is limited to three sub-disciplines of archeology, namely "Prehistoric Archaeology", "Protohistory and Near Eastern Archeology" and "Classical Archeology". Anadolu / Anatolia Journal is published once a year. In addition to research articles, within the scope of these geographical and sub-disciplines, book reviews, excavation and research reports and news can also be included in the journal. The studies to be included in this latter group are not subject to peer-review, unlike the processes applied to research articles, and are under the responsibility of the editorial board.
