Dear British colleagues,
liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen in Großbritannien,

The new administrative border won't be an academic or a human one. We will continue to collaborate with our British partners, to develop common projects with you and to share thoughts. The DGUF warmly offers you all to connect unalteredly with the continent in the following ways. We welcome the English language in all fields at DGUF! We publish everything online open access.

Sharing your news in the DGUF's newsletter
The DGUF newsletter contains important information on upcoming conferences, current research, statements, cultural property protection, job topics and personal matters as well as other news from the world of archeology and the DGUF. We warmly welcome news coming from the UK! Our newsletter is subscribed by more than 1.600 readers, two thirds of them are archaeologists by training. We send this ad-free publication approximately every month by e-mail. Languages used and accepted are German an English.

Publishing your research papers and conference reports in our journal "Archäologische Informationen"
Our research journal publishes both online in (Platinum) open access and in a printed version of 900 copies. The submitted papers (German or English) are peer-reviewed. The online edition also publishes supplementary material and open data. The editors in collaboration with Heidelberg University Library ensure the long-term archival storage of the electronic edition of the journal and of the open data. All papers are published "online first" as Early Views. The online edition of Arch. Inf. was the most widely read archaeological journal at the Portal Propylaeum in 2018 and 2019; in 2019, it had a market share of 22.3% among the 13 journals hosted there.

Reviewing British books & softwares for readers on "the continent".
Or: offering your British perspective on "continental" books & softwares

"Archäologische Informationen" publishes reviews of recently published literature as well as of softwares and tools that are relevant in archaeology. The editors particularly welcome the submission of overviews of a number of recently published publications on a specific topic instead of conventional reviews (i.e. reviews in the Anglo-American sense), but - of course - classical reviews are perfect as well. You are invited to either offering newly published books and softwares of British topic for review, or to add your perspective by reviewing a publication from our list.

Publishing your research project in our monograph series "Archäologische Berichte"
The DGUF's aim in establishing the series was to provide the authors with an opportunity to publish in a way that is both fast and cost-effective (e. g. by the option to o the typesetting themselves). To achieve this objective the Archäologische Berichte (i. e. "archaeological reports") is released twofold: in print and, in collaboration with the University Library Heidelberg, online as open access (license CC BY). The monographic series incorporates supplementing materials and Open Data wherever necessary. All volumes undergo quality control by means of an anonymous peer review. Thanks to an immediate bibliographic recording, the volumes are visible in the national and international library catalogues from the very start. Heidelberg University Library guarantees the hosting and long-term archiving of the volumes and the data.

Connecting archaeological organizations in Europe: Participate in the project
Who does what amongst all the archaeological organizations? Who are the possible future partners for a specific matter? Who are those who could collaborate and who would quickly reach their members? Who are those who have already gained experience with an approach and could provide advice? So far, the search for a potential partner has been tedious. A project by EAA and DGUF wants to change this. You are asked to get involved!
