Open Access

Archaeologia publishes articles open access: a fundamental principle of open access is that content should not simply be accessible but should also be freely re-usable.

Articles will be published under a Creative Commons Attribution license (CC-BY) by default. This means that the article is freely available to read, copy and redistribute, and can also be adapted (users can “remix, transform, and build upon” the work) for any commercial or non-commercial purpose, as long as proper attribution is given. Authors can, in the publishing agreement form, choose a different kind of Creative Commons license (including those prohibiting non-commercial and derivative use) if they prefer.

Our Open Access policy is compliant with major finding bodies.

Articles will be issued with a digital object identifier (DOI), a unique string of characters allocated to a website, file, or other piece of digital information. Copies of the article will be made available via the SAL website, as well as OAPEN [link to] and the Archaeology Data Service [link to] for long-term preservation.
