Institute for Andean Studies


Ñawpa Pacha: Journal of Andean Archaeology was established in 1963 by John Howland Rowe, founder of the Institute of Andean Studies, under the name Ñawpa Pacha, which means "antiquity" in Quechua, the Inca language. It is published in two issues per annual volume, in June and December. Tables of contents, article abstracts, and sample content are available at Maney Online.

Members of the Institute receive the journal upon payment of the corresponding year's dues. Non-members and institutions may subscribe or buy articles or back issues at Maney Online.

All Ñawpa Pacha articles more than five years old are available on JSTOR, and to anyone online at no cost through JSTOR's "Register & Read" program.

Ñawpa Pacha volumes 1-24 (1963-1986) are also currently available online at no cost through AnthroHub, although this access will be discontinued soon.

Manuscripts may be submitted in the author’s native language, and will generally be published in the language in which they are written. New submissions should be sent to:
