Lots of archaeological news these days in Open Access News, the primary collector of Open Access related information and discussion. This is probably a direct consequence of the rapid advancements in the field. My main hope now is that established journals begin moving to OA, especially academy-based ones (i.e. journals that are not tied to a publisher but are published directly by a research institution).
- Presentations from archaeology conference
- The presentations from Web 2.0 and Beyond: New Tools for Archaeological Collaboration and Communication are now online.
- French OA index on archaeology and early history
- DAPHNE (Données en Archéologie, Préhistoire et Histoire sur le NEt - Data in Archeology, Prehistory and History on the NEt) is a new OA index of metadata, launched in November 2008.
- OA dataset from archaeology textbook
- The Quantitative Archaeology Wiki has posted the dataset from the textbook Digging Numbers by Mike Fletcher and Gary Lock, along with a tutorial of using the statistical software R to analyze the data. (OK, I already knew this one)
