Open Access Publications

As part of its strong commitment to supporting research, the Society is digitising its extensive backlist of research reports and other monographs, making these available as open access (OA). Included among these are reports on iconic excavations and special conferences held at the Society.  

The Society’s first six fully OA titles are now available via OAPEN and ADS. These titles are Glastonbury Abbey:  Archaeological Investigations 1904–79, Sherborne Old Castle, and all four volumes of the Dictionary of British Arms: Medieval Ordinary. 

Also recently made available on OAPEN are vols I–V and vol. VIII of the Research Reports of the Society of Antiquaries of London. For further details of these, please click on the links below.

Based in The Netherlands, OAPEN is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to open access (OA), peer-reviewed books. OAPEN operates two platforms, the OAPEN Library, a central repository for hosting and disseminating OA books, and the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB), a discovery service for OA books.

The Archaeology Data Service (ADS) is an accredited digital repository of heritage data and is based in York, England.

The Society is uploading new titles at regular intervals to OAPEN and ADS to make them open access, so do return soon to find out what is available.
