The museum’s primary objective is the study of human beings and society in their environmental context and the interaction between the two up until historic times. Interdisciplinary papers and/or theoretical approaches, including methodology and experiments of general interest, are welcome.

Similar approaches in the fields of museology and heritage management, incorporating new methodology in conservation studies and field work, are also of interest.
Geographically, the focus of the museum is on Europe and Scandinavia, but we are open for all papers that explore themes relevant to Norwegian research in general at a high international scientific level. Long and short scientific papers, articles and collections, including conference proceedings, are published in AmS-Skrifter in a world language, with an English abstract.

The AmS-Skrifter series is registered at Level 1 in the Norwegian research documentation system.

The AmS-Skrifter is an "Open-Access-series".
