This year as part of the Festival of Archaeology, we at the ADS and Internet Archaeology have been highlighting the Open Access Archaeology Fund, a means of supporting the journal publishing and archiving costs of researchers who have no other means of institutional support.
Since its launch in 2017, we have supported a number of researchers who otherwise would have struggled to publish their datasets and articles otherwise. With this financial support this data is now available open access for all to view and download.
To read about some of the interesting and exciting projects that have received funding have a look at these recent news stories on the ADS website.
- Geophysical surveys at Breedon Hill, Leicestershire: An ADS archive and Internet Archaeology paper
- Digitisation Colour Slides using DSLR cameras: An Internet Archaeology paper
- Prehistoric Lithic Collections from Yorkshire: A series of ADS archives
- The Network analysis of cities in Gharb Al-Andalus: An Internet Archaeology paper
- The photographic archive of the IUO Italian Archaeological Mission to Upper Egypt (1977-1986): An ADS archive
We are asking you to support this important effort by pledging a recurring or single gift. These funds will also us to support other researchers in publishing their articles and datasets as open access resources.
We are grateful for all gifts to this fund and to say thank you, everyone who donates over £25 will receive a token of our appreciation – one of our highly desirable red USB trowels. A limited number of special edition orange and purple trowels are also available for those who make donations of between £50-£74.99 (orange) and £75 and over (purple).
