Zurich 2022 Proceedings


Conference Proceedings Issue

Submissions: Manuscript submissions based on papers or posters presented at the conference are encouraged. Please submit your article here by Jan. 13, 2023. Contact Managing Editor Kim Elliott [kimelliott(at)] to request an extension. In the submission site, please select paper type "Conference" and special issue "2022 Zurich 14C/Archaeology Conference." In your submission's cover letter, be sure to mention that your paper is part of the Zurich proceedings.

Publication: Articles will be published online at Cambridge Core FirstView as soon as the final proof is accepted. Radiocarbon will publish the proceedings of the conference in the 2023 print & online subscription lineup.

Online access to the proceedings issue will be free of charge to conference attendees, and print copies will be available for sale. Details to come.

Formatting: Please follow Radiocarbon's author's instructions and formatting guidelines.


Word count: We expect a high submission count for this popular meeting. Therefore, conference papers should be kept to a relatively short length of ~4500-5000 words, with no more than 4 figures and 2 tables. Additional content may be published as supplemental online materials, which are permanently linked to the published article. 


Publication Fees and OA: Conference proceedings articles can be published in non-OA format (Green OA) at no charge to the authors.

Also, many authors may be eligible for free Open Access (Gold OA) publication via a Read and Publish Agreement between their institution and Cambridge University Press. Please check here to see if your institution has a Read and Publish Agreement. Note, the agreement is based on the corresponding author's institution at the time of submission.

Color figures in the print version are currently charged at USD 320 per figure, regardless of waiver status. Online color is always free of charge. 

Feel free to contact Managing Editor Kim Elliott [kimelliott(at)] with any questions.
