About ISPQS

The Indian Society for Prehistoric and Quaternary Studies (ISPQS) was established in 1977 by members of the erstwhile Indian Prehistoric Society to promote and organize interdisciplinary studies of Prehistory and Quaternary Sciences, and to provide a common platform for archaeologists, geomorphologists, geologists, environmentalists, anthropologists and other scientists.  The Society has more than 500 Life Members spread all over the world.

The Society has three main objectives: (a) Organize an Annual Conference, and also from time to time arrange seminars, workshops, conferences, lectures, and discussion meetings for academic purposes; (b) Undertake a programme of publications of academic and general nature; and (c) Encourage and organize research related to Prehistoric and Quaternary studies.

The Society publishes its Journal Man and Environment and a series of monographs. It works in close cooperation with other such professional organizations to promote excellence in research in Prehistoric and Quaternary studies in particular and archaeology in general. Though the title of the Journal is Man and Environment, editors neither have any intention of gender discrimination nor do they subscribe to such discriminatory ideas.
