The PalArch Foundation News

News from the Chairman

16 December 2020

Dear visitor,

As you can read below, the PalArch Foundation started its publishing activities 17 years ago. Initially, there were two journals, PalArch’s Journal of Archaeology of Egypt/Egyptology (PJAEE; ISSN 1567-214X) and PalArch’s Journal of Vertebrate Palaeontology (PJVP; ISSN 1567-2158). Some time later, another journal, PalArch’s Journal of Archaeology of Northwest Europe (ISSN 15733939), was established.

The journals were among the earliest peer-reviewed free-access online journals in the fields. Since the inception there have been numerous papers, book reviews and scientific discussion published in it. 

Recently, the Foundation’s journals, have been taken over by OAText. The new owner widened the scope of PJAEE and altered the procedures. PJAEE is thus not exclusively publishing Egyptology-related material anymore. The published work, however, remains accessible for free in the archive on the website ( 

Though the journals remain accessible, the PalArch Foundation decided to offer a full list of publications on this new webpage (see below). We will, eventually, offer all published material by the Foundation, thus including book reviews, the Newsletters (ISSN 1872-4582) and the Proceedings (ISSN 1567-2166). The Foundation continues its other work, including the support of Munro’s Archive Project (MAP). 

We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to the Foundation’s board and the members of the editorial board for their commitment over the years and thank the authors for entrusting us to publish their material. We hope that the journals will continue to flourish under OATExt’s new editorial board, and that you will enjoy the new materials that will appear under the new management.

André Veldmeijer
Chairman PalArch Foundation
