SPAFA Journal: Call for Submissions

spafa-journal-small SEAMEO SPAFA, Southeast Asia's Regional Centre for Archaeology and Fine Arts, has recently set up a website to access the online open access SPAFA Journal. The SPAFA Journal focuses on Southeast Asian archaeology, performing arts, visual arts and cultural heritage. This SPAFA publication has been in publication since 1980, first as the SPAFA Digest, before being renamed the SPAFA Journal in 1991. Now, as an open access journal, publishers expect to reach a greater number of readers, as well as to carry multimedia content such as music and video clips. The journal accepts scholarly, peer-reviewed research articles pertaining to the archaeology, fine arts and cultural heritage of Southeast Asia, and shorter contributions such as photo and video essays, book and exhibition reviews, and brief reports. SEAMEO-SPAFA's aim for the journal is to have articles and content catering to both the academic community and the general public. The following submissions are accepted for the 2017 volume of the SPAFA Journal:
  • Original research papers
  • Brief reports
  • Thesis abstracts
  • Exhibition / performance / book reviews
  • Photo and video essays
The new SPAFA Journal website will also host other publications, including the old volumes of the SPAFA Journal and SPAFA Digest, which are being digitised and should be made available in early 2017. For additional information about the SPAFA Journal and how to contribute to it, please visit
