Internet Archaeology now fully Open Access
Posted on 6 October 2014
Another pioneering step for Internet Archaeology
To considerable applause and congratulations from far and wide, Internet Archaeology, the department's very own international journal, has completed the transition from a subscription to a fully open access journal, making 37 issues of archaeology research freely available.
Open access to archaeological research offers significant academic, professional and social benefits and providing free, immediate access is the most effective way of ensuring that research can be read, integrated into archaeological practice and built upon. There are, as yet, very few journals who have made the transition despite the wealth of debate and discussion by much bigger players in the publishing arena, so Internet Archaeology has (once again) become an early pioneer in this regard.
