Editors Notes/Notes du rédacteur
As I mentioned at the recent Annual General Meeting, I am constantly trying to identify strategies to increase the number of manuscripts being submitted for publication in the Canadian Journal of Archaeology. There are, of course, sound editorial and financial reasons for such initiatives. First, an increase in the number of submissions reduces my level of anxiety as I try to assemble every issue of the journal. At the moment, I often have to beg people to revise their manuscript so that I can compile two issues per year. Second, a higher number of submissions allows more flexibility in the selection process and reduces my workload because I do not have to spend as much time helping authors revise their manuscripts. Third, a higher number of submissions allows the editor to increase the number of articles in each issue of the journal. As most of you should know by now, the number of peer-reviewed articles determines the amount we receive from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) so increasing the number of articles per issue has definite financial advantages, especially given the fact that we were once again successful in our application for funding through the Aid to Scholarly Publications program at SSHRC.
