Open Access Archaeology Journals PART II- (now 57 publications)

Posted on May 12, 2011


After putting up so many journals that require a payment to view on my list of archaeology journals, I felt a little sick. Mainly, because of the level of knowledge locked behind a pay wall and a little because of the McD’s I had for lunch. It seems like 90% of all journal articles are not accessible to the public (90% of archaeologists too). So, I redoubled my efforts and have expanded my list of open access archaeology publications. Not all of these publications are peer-reviewed journals but they all include presentations of original research. Some of which, in my opinion, is better than many of the publications in the peer-reviewed but costly commercial publisher journals.  Still, quite a few of these are peer-reviewed academic journals. The full list of all journals, including non-open access, can be found here

PS- there are tons of non-English language open access journals listed around the web but my lack of language skills prevent me from understanding enough of the websites to determine to post them or not. Sorry, but that means this list is for mainly English language publications.
