Abstract: We extend the notion of algebraic stack to an arbitrary subcanonical site $ \EuScript C$. If the topology on $ \EuScript C$ is local on the target and satisfies descent for morphisms, we show that algebraic stacks are precisely those which are weakly equivalent to representable presheaves of groupoids whose domain map is a cover. This leads naturally to a definition of algebraic $ n$-stacks. We also compare different sites naturally associated to a stack.
