http://intarch.ac.uk Contents electronic publication and archaeology

journal background developing integrated publication LEAP / LEAP II projects

Archaeological publishing 1900-1950 Publication seen as an integral part of archaeological excavation

1960s and 1970s Shift from exhaustive to selective publication Primary record is archive rather than the publication

Today Great variation in publication policy across the discipline, and greater integration between description and interpretation

PUNS report http://www.britarch.ac.uk/publications/puns/ Digital publication data is born digital

archaeologists want - access to data - to produce more exploratory writing - more synthetic, narrative histories that

addresses concerns about dissemination and multi-vocality Internet Archaeology

peer-reviewed international - no chronological restrictions no print version text, data, images, VRML, QTVR, SVG, video,

sound archived by Archaeology Data Service http://ads.ahds.ac.uk

Landmarks 1995 - 3 year grant from eLib programme 1996 - issue 1 published 1998 - grant extension, 1st publication

subvention 2000 - introduction of subscriptions (institutional and individual), advertising 2006 - JISC access agreement for UK HE/FE 2009 - open access for fully funded content

Approach

flexible, responsive rights, commissioning content, keeping options open, no rigid template

appropriate standards for interoperability and longevity - file

formats, metadata, storage media and delivery systems

increased editorial contact results in a flexible final publication where authors have a say in the delivery and

presentation Range of content long and short themed issues

methodology fieldwork landscape studies artefacts

specialist reports applications of IT Developing integration

institutions) with comment/debate facility http://intarch.ac.uk/leap/index.html

LEAP II exemplars Exemplar 1: The Shala Valley Project, Northern Albania

Exemplar 2: Placing immateriality: situating the material of highland Chiriqu, Panam Exemplar 3: The BTC Pipeline Archaeological Excavations in Azerbaijan

Exemplar 4: Strategies for developing a nextgeneration virtual museum using close range scanning Integrated publication reader works with different levels of

information and explores the links between interpretation and data through a variety of interfaces information no longer required to be split

across several publications explicit interrogation creates an active, used and visible archive multiple pathways through the text into and

out of archive boundaries are blurred integrating text with data, evidence with interpretation: creating a new dialectic

Implications shaping how projects develop shifts publication back towards data

affects archaeological practice and the narratives we create Internet Archaeology
