Establishing a Data Journal for Archaeology and Related Fields

This project pilots a “Data Journal” for archaeology, with the goal of increasing researcher participation in data dissemination while improving the quality and usability of published data. Like a conventional journal, a Data Journal helps set, communicate, and maintain expectations regarding the disciplinary nature and quality of published research. Data Journal editorial review processes improve data quality and align data with disciplinary standards. Finally, a Data Journal, through integration with citation infrastructures and services, better communicates expectations for professional recognition needed to make data sharing part of the mainstream of scholarly communications.
