Head over to Past Horizons to see my opinion article on Open Access Archaeology. It is based off of a blog post that I did for Cultural Heritage Informatics earlier this year on two examples of open access archaeology.
The topic of open access is continuing to grow in archaeology, therefore it is important that we address it and figure out a way that we can use it to our advantage. The best way to prevent misinterpretation of your data is to present it yourself in an open and explicit format. And to be honest- how are we going to grow as a discipline if we don’t open up our data for critique and debate?
