The Internet Archaeology Journal

Extend the reach and value of your ADS deposit with an Internet Archaeology publication.

Internet Archaeology is an international, open access journal for archaeology, based alongside ADS at the Department of Archaeology at the University of York.

Internet Archaeology publishes quality, peer-reviewed research that uses the potential of the medium, whether this is via the inclusion of video, audio, data, photos, images, visualisations, 3D models, animations or interactive mapping. Internet Archaeology has been awarded the Directory of Open Access Journals Seal in recognition of its high standards in publishing best practice, preservation and transparency. Article development and dissemination costs (content is preserved for the long-term by the ADS) are met through a one-off author processing charge.

One of the unique features of Internet Archaeology is the ability to incorporate data within the article narrative. Internet Archaeology works especially closely with the ADS to publish integrated, multi-layered, digital publications that link and build on associated digital archives.  Silchester Roman Town Insula IX: The Development of an Urban Property c.AD40-50-c.AD250  is an early but excellent example of this model.  ADS encourages all depositors to consider a publication in the journal, to embed and contextualise the deposited ADS data within the article and to further encourage data reuse. The publication model we offer enables readers to ‘drill down’ from the publication into the archive, to test interpretations and develop their own conclusions.

As a standalone publication or as part of a suite of digital outputs, you can also publish a data paper, a very short publication that is designed to promote a dataset and its re-use potential. A data paper describes the contents of a dataset deposited with ADS (or other accredited repository), the methods used to create that data and, most importantly, what further avenues of research are possible. The ADS recommends that depositors publish an associated data paper in Internet Archaeology alongside their digital archive as both a means of bringing credit and recognition to those involved in the data creation, and to act as a signpost to the data and encourage its re-use.
