About This Journal
BEADS: Journal of the Society of Bead Researchers was initiated in 1989 to encourage and publish scholarly research on beads and beadwork of all materials and periods from around the world. Researchers are invited to submit scholarly articles on practically any topic that involves beads, especially from an archaeological or ethnographic context. All submissions are peer reviewed to determine the accuracy of their content, appropriateness for an international audience, usefulness to other researchers, and consistency with the research and ethical goals of the Society. Information for authors, and other details about the Society of Bead Researchers, may be found at https://www.beadresearch.org/.
