CFP: Journal of Open Archaeology data

Call for papers for 2019

The Journal of Open Archaeology Data (JOAD) is accepting submissions for 
publication for 2019.

JOAD publishes data papers, which do not contain research results but 
rather a concise description of a dataset, and where to find it. Papers 
will only be accepted for datasets that authors agree to make freely 
available in a public repository. This means that they have been 
deposited in a data repository under an open licence (such as a Creative 
Commons Zero licence), and are therefore freely available to anyone with 
an internet connection, anywhere in the world.

A data paper is a publication that is designed to make other researchers 
aware of data that is of potential use to them. As such it describes the 
methods used to create the dataset, its structure, its reuse potential, 
and a link to its location in a repository. It is important to note that 
a data paper does not replace a research article, but rather complements 
it. When mentioning the data behind a study, a research paper should 
reference the data paper for further details. The data paper similarly 
should contain references to any research papers associated with the 

Any kind of archaeological data is acceptable, including for example: 
geophysical data; quantitative or qualitative data; images; notebooks; 
excavation data, software, etc.

JOAD is indexed by the Web of Science Emerging Sources Citation Index, 
the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), Crossref, JISC KB+, SHERPA 
RoMEO, EBSCOHost, Cengage Learning/Gale, and Google Scholar.
