INSTAP Academic Press

Publisher Description

The Institute for Aegean Prehistory (INSTAP) was founded in 1981 to support projects relevant to the history of the Aegean world from the Paleolithic to the 8th century B.C. In 2001, the INSTAP Academic Press was started to help publish projects dealing with the subject of Aegean Prehistory. The Press is a scholarly nonprofit publisher specializing in high quality publications of primary source material from archaeological excavations as well as individual studies dealing with material from the prehistoric periods. All manuscripts are peer reviewed, and all publications are in English.
The Press is also a member of the Association of University Presses, a nonprofit organization of publishing professionals and institutions who advocate for the fundamental role of scholarly publishing in achieving academic excellence and in cultivating and disseminating knowledge. Starting in 2019, published book PDF files by INSTAP Academic Press are born accessible for impaired readers, and select older titles have been made accessible.
