A presentation on the subject of Open Access in Archaeology, something that is near and dear to my heart, at the Digital Engagement in Archaeology Conference:
Abstract: Publishing in archaeology: Open Access and the REWARD project
Publishing in archaeology is evolving along with trends in open access, open data and the semantic web. The open access publishing model has proven highly successful for smaller archaeology journals. New initiatives will be presented that enable and reward the publication of archaeological data and software. The second half of the presentation will focus on the JISC-funded REWARD project, which ran at UCL from 2011-2012. REWARD looked at ways to encourage archaeologists to share data through data management planning, publishing data papers, and use of the UCL institutional repository.
