  • This researcher has been demonstrating since 1993, with irrefutable evidence, that the fluctuations of the economy were recorded in the grave goods of complex societies. He has isolated a series of parameters that measure the behavior and evolution of ancient societies from the social phenomena coded in their mortuary record. He has developed the archaeology of social phenomena or archaeonomy, that is, archaeology as a true nomothetic social science capable of inferring the universal laws governing ancient societies. Despite all this, the academic community, which at any time can verify the veracity of the empirical evidence that supports so many achievements and discoveries, continues to look the other way.

The ADVISORY BOARD is an independent advisory entity responsible for ensuring the scientific excellence of the journal. Composed of prestigious academic authorities, it examines the adequacy of the manuscripts submitted for publication with a double-blind peer review polity by two external evaluators for each case, ruling justly on their acceptance, revision or rejection on the basis of the scientific quality of them.
Accordingly, the ADVISORY BOARD is sovereign in deciding on the publication of any paper submitted and the Editor can do nothing about it, limiting only to communicate their decisions to authors.
