    Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


    Welcome to the final issue of the European Journal of Archaeology (EJA) for 2018. In this issue, we present six articles spanning topics as different as Neanderthal studies in nor-thern Europe, mobility in Iron Age Greece and whaling in the early medieval and Viking periods. It is also noteworthy that, of these six articles, fully half are open access, which is the highest proportion we have ever had in an issue of the EJA. Publishing is a rapidly changing world at the moment, and there are numerous ongoing debates about how and whether to publish academic research open access (n.b. one of us (CF) has weighed in on this in the context of the EJA previously in The European Archaeologist: https://www.e-a-a.org/EAA/EAA/Navigation_Publications/TEA_content/debate.aspx~ openaccess), but suffice to say we feel strongly that the growing support of funding bodies, universities and other employers for open access publications can only be a posi-tive step forward. These six articles are followed by ten book reviews. Below, we sum-marize and comment on these contributions.
