New name, new look, same quality
By Shauna Mecartea
On behalf of the Editorial Board and as Executive Editor, I am pleased to announce that the Publications Unit of the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at UCLA is now named the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology Press. In Fall 2008, the Editorial Board decided to change the name to reflect the increased activity and visibility of the publications program. Publishing about 10 titles per year in nine different series, our volumes are receiving critical acclaim and are distributed worldwide through David Brown Book Company/Oxbow Books. Our quality and mission—to preserve cultural heritage through the documentation and publication of scholarly archaeological research—remains the same with the new name; but our scope has increased to include several new initiatives such as digital publications. See the article below for more information on the new series. Along with a new name we acquired a new look after the completion of a branding project for the Cotsen Institute, which incorporates the UCLA identity. We look forward to producing high-quality books with our updated look. Visit our new Web site for more information on our Press.
