Getting published in 'Ancient Mesoamerica': what makes a good article?
Cambridge journal 'Ancient Mesoamerica' is the international forum for the method, theory, substance and interpretation of Mesoamerican archaeology, art history and ethnohistory.

Editor Nancy Gonlin, together with the journal's Associate Editor Blanca Maldonado and guest panellist Christina Halperin, will present key insights into (and aim to define) what constitutes a good article on Mesoamerican archaeology.

With different perspectives, and the opportunity to put your own questions to the panel, this webinar will be of interest to scholars, academics and researchers working in the field of Mesoamerican archaeology, as well as those looking to publish their work in a relevant and leading academic journal.
