Open Access Journals in Archaeology
#1
Hi Everyone,

I created a list of Open Access/Nearly Open Access
archaeology/heritage management journals/publications. There are close
to 60 covering almost every area of archaeology. If you are stuck
behind the paywall of most journals, like me most of the time:face-crying:, open
access is a great option to see the latest research. Here is the list
link:

A personal request to those on the list, if you are thinking about
publishing some research soon PLEASE CONSIDER OPEN ACCESS. I made
brief descriptions of the open access journals and what they cover,
which is practically everything (archaeology-wise), and the vast majority are peer
reviewed. I am sure you can find one that fits your research topic

It would be a great help to those archaeologists not in universities
and who can not afford ?7,358.03-?9,572.95 in individual journal fees
every year B).

Thanks

Doug


PS If you know of some I missed please let me know.

Good go there Doug.

Here is another list as well, you may want to filter through, to pull out some better ones.

Thanks David. Yeah I already went through that list, 900+ arrrggghhhh that day sucked, actually days. Though for people interested in a wider area beyond archaeology e.g. history, classics. I would recommend it 110%.

Yeah, useful list :face-approve:

Of course for those of us with access to university libraries, it would be nice if those libraries, having subscribed to on-line versions of journals, didn't then sell/destroy/hide the original paper copies and restrict the E-access to their own staff and students when some of us have paid a small fortune to them to get access to the paper copies in the first place - looking at yards of empty shelving where old favourites used to happily gather dust makes my blood boil Sad!
