Call for links

March 18, 2009

WikiArc is looking to build a directory of links to open access journals, books and conference proceedings of possible interest to archaeologists. Please e-mail links [AT] wikiarc [DOT] org if you have any suggestions. The list so far can be found here.

    Useful project, but there is not much out there that you don’t have to pay for.

    there’s more than I thought, which is a good start. but you said something to me once about “wrong side of the academic firewall”, which I thought was a great phrase and absolutely spot on. we have a long way to go. we are trying to help with wikiarc though. I fear that some people might not view having their work published in a peer-reviewed open access journal as being quite as prestigious as a print journal though, and that’s something we’ll have to change.

    Over the next few months the back numbers of most of the major journals for archaeology in Wales will be avaiabale to all from the Welsh Journals Online website, including Archaeologia Cambrensis, Bulletin of the Board of Celtic Studies and Studia Celtica. The first few titles have just gone live.

    Hi Martin,

    Thanks very much for that. I have duly added the link, and will be watching the site with interest.
