CAA supports the publication of papers on digital archaeology in the Journal of Computer Applications in Archaeology as well as the annual conference proceedings.

Journal of Computer Applications in Archaeology (JCAA)

The Journal of Computer Applications in Archaeology (JCAA), established in 2017 by Computer Applications in Archaeology (CAA), features cutting-edge research in the field of digital archaeology and cultural heritage. This peer-reviewed, open-access, electronic journal publishes papers in all disciplines related to computational archaeology, including 3D modelling, spatial analysis, remote sensing, geophysics, field recording techniques, databases, semantic web, simulation modelling, network analysis, digital reconstructions of the past, and statistics and data mining. JCAA articles are issued online, throughout the year, as part of a continuous volume to ensure new research is published quickly. CAA International members who do not have institutional or external funding to cover the Article Processing Charges (APC) may apply for a full or partial waiver through CAA International’s JCAA Publication Fund.


CAA has published conference proceedings for each annual meeting, since the organisation’s founding in 1973. CAA invites presenters to submit full versions of their papers for publication in the peer-reviewed proceedings after each annual meeting. The publication of the proceedings volume is managed by the local conference organisers in conjunction with CAA’s Editorial Board. The proceedings were issued in a traditional book format through the 2016 conference, but new volumes are now published electronically with an option for print-on-demand. Papers from many of CAA’s proceedings have been digitised and are available through the online portal.
