ABOUT THE JOURNAL
The Journal of Ceramic Research, a collection of studies on local and imported ceramics from the Neolithic Age to the end of the Ottoman period in combination with comparative archaeology, archaeometry and ethnoarchaeology i.a., was published first in 2019. The Journal of Ceramic Research, is an open access and internationally peer-reviewed journal which appears once a year, in December. The journal provides permanent access to its content, free of charge to read, download and cite for everybody. The submitted pottery is also available to everyone through www.srmka.com. There are no publication fees. All responsibilities for the published articles belong to the author.
The objective of the Journal of Ceramic Research is to contribute to the evaluation of pottery which is found in huge numbers during archaeological investigations and which met the humans’ need and taste for millennia. The second aim is to fill a gap in the archaeological literature by an interdisciplinary discourse on ceramics in archaeology, history, archaeometry and art history in Turkey. Today archaeologists working on pottery benefit from an interoperability in technological, analytical and archaeological terms. ‘Old’ ceramics are a junction point between social and physical sciences. The desire to keep the ceramic studies and experiences together affected our decision to publish the Journal of Ceramic Research. Last not least, the Journal of Ceramic Research aims to reach a wider audience with the help of DergiPark and the journal’s official website, www.srmka.com, both of which offer open access opportunities.
