About this website

This is my blog were I focus mainly on the Profession of Archaeology e.g. pay, working conditions, career prospect, etc. Though, I do on occasion throw in some other topics and some bits on Open Access. Though, I have another blog http://openaccessarchaeology.tumblr.com/ that deals with publishing and open access in archaeology.

I hope you find something interesting here and feel free to drop me a line and say hi.

    Hi Doug,
    I thoroughly enjoy your website and your list of open access journals is great!
    I am under the impression thought that most open access journals are not accredited and as such I cannot publish in them. Right or wrong, the h-index and journal index rule.
    Best wishes,

    • Hi Heriette,

      First, sorry your post was listed as spam but I fixed that. Also, where are you from? I know some countries have formal lists but there are quite a few open access journals that are on these lists.

  2. Hi Doug,

    I believe I caught the bus, walked to, and dug alongside you at Temple in Midlothian in September 2010. Came across this site separately and it’s a very good resource. Thanks for the blog!



    • Hi Paul,

      Yes, that was me. Glad you found this blog of use. Hope everything is working out for you.


      • Yep, still a long wait till I can apply to uni — 2013 at the earliest — but I’m taking part in any volunteer/community archaeology I can get into down here in East Sussex. I’m never happier than head down in a hole!

  3. I left this message for you on Academia.com, but in case you do not check that, I am the Chair of the Scientific Program for the World Archaeological Congress taking place in Jordan in January of 2013. Would you be interested in organizing a session on open access archaeology for those meetings? There is a modest amount of student support that you can apply for.

    Can you be kind enough to give me some further information of the closure dates of the Departments of Archaeology and Classics at the university of Birmingham and the fate of the Numismatic collections there. I have in the past worked on the Ptolemaic and Alexandrian Numismatic collections there and I feel that it is vital that the collections should be saved from being sold off and broken up and lost to the nation. If need be is it possibly bid on them to save the collections?

    • Sorry Sean, I do not know the details of that information but I do know the department has not closed yet. You should be able to email them to find the information you need.

  7. Hello!

    I was in the process of making a Cards Against Humanity for archaeologist, and decided to google it to see if anyone else had any. Thanks for some ideas!

    And don’t forget: A fine lithic assemblage.
