›Egypt and the Levant‹ was founded in 1990 to provide a publication platform for the research on cultural contacts between Egypt and her neighbours. A focus of interest was the Egyptian-Canaanite fusion of cultures, which was mainly encountered in teh Nile Delta during the Austrian excavations. From the beginning, the scope of the journal was international and interdisciplinary. The subject area has now been greatly expanded far beyond the original topics. It comprises reports and preliminary reports on archaeological excavations in Egypt and the entire Middle East including the Sudan, as well as articles dealing with all aspects of Egyptian and Near Eastern archaeology, history or cultural history. The main emphasis lays on the pharaonic period, but both contributions to prehistory of the said regions, and post-pharaonic periods may be accepted. In addition, a broad range of scientific topics is covered, including C14-dating, material and archaeometric analyses, archaeobotanical and archaeozoological studies as well as studies in physical anthropology.
›Egypt and the Levant‹ is jointly edited by the Department of Prehistory & WANA Archaeology of the OeAI, the Institute of Egyptology of the University of Vienna, the Institute of Mediterranean and Oriental Cultures of the Polish Academy of Sciences, and the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations of the Yale University. It is published on an annual basis, both in print and online. Submitted articles are intended to be published in a timely manner. Manuscripts may be submitted in English, German or French. Book reviews are not accepted. All submitted articles are subject to international peer-review according to quality standards of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
