Counting Northwest Coast Archaeology Journals


Smaller academic journals are important but often overlooked. For a first draft post, I figured it might be useful to create a simple list of smaller academic journals that regularly publish archaeological research about the Northwest Coast (by small, I mean not many articles and issues per year). If you have suggestions or reminders to add here, please email me.
