Internet Archaeology is delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) Seal.
The DOAJ is an online directory that indexes and provides access to high quality, open access, peer-reviewed journals.
The DOAJ Seal is awarded to a journal that fulfills a set of criteria related to accessibility, openness, discoverability, reuse and author rights. It acts as a signal to readers and authors that the journal has generous use and reuse terms, author rights and adheres to the highest level of ‘openness’
Internet Archaeology has been awarded the DOAJ Seal because it:
- has an archival and preservation arrangement in place with the Archaeology Data Service
- provides permanent DOI identifiers in the published content
- provides article level metadata to DOAJ
- embeds machine-readable CC licensing information in article level metadata
- allows reuse and remixing of content in accordance with a CC BY license
- has a deposit policy registered in SHERPA/RoMEO
- allows authors to hold copyright without restriction.
Internet Archaeology is currently the only open access archaeology journal to be awarded the Seal, sitting alongside 88 other journals from right across the academic spectrum. It is wonderful to have been recognised for our work in this area by the DOAJ.
