SGA’s flagship publication is the journal Early Georgia, which has been published for decades. For downloadable back issues click here.

Although most contributors and reviewers are members of the society, membership is not required to submit manuscripts for publication in Early Georgia. Scholarship and pertinence are the determining factors in selecting contributions for publication in SGA’s journal. You can submit either REPORTS, ARTICLES or BOOK REVIEWS. The categorization of a manuscript as an ARTICLE or a REPORT is left to the authors’ discretion.

REPORTS may be more technical, address a specific topic, and be of primary interest to relatively fewer readers. Reports can include project summaries, updates on ongoing field research, or preliminary findings (great for people returning from the summer field season). Reports should be under 2,500 words (7-8 pages double spaced), inclusive, and will be reviewed by an Associate Editor before publication.

To be included in the 2019 issue, the deadline for submitting Reports to Early Georgia is July 7, 2019.

ARTICLES are usually longer than Reports and address topics of major importance in a way that reaches out to a broad audience of professional archaeologists and the informed public. Word limits for submissions are not fixed, but the recommended limit for ARTICLES is 7,500 words (30 pages double spaced), inclusive of abstracts, text, notes, and references cited. ARTICLES will undergo a full peer review process, while an Associate Editor will review the REPORTS. The categorization of a manuscript as an ARTICLE or a REPORT is left to the authors’ discretion.

To be included in the 2019 issue, the deadline for submitting Articles to Early Georgia is March 1, 2019.

BOOK REVIEWS are shorter than Reports and review professional archaeology, history and architectural history books of the Southeast as well as online CRM reports of interest to Early Georgia readers.

To be included in the 2019 issue, the deadline for submitting Articles to Early Georgia is August 15, 2019.
