Our understanding of the historic environment is increasing and this continues to influence how we present and enhance it.

Organisation: Society of Antiquaries of Scotland
Project title: Publications – developing open access policy

Copyright: Society of Antiquaries of Scotland

To enhance and build on the Society’s own Open Access policy it has been developing, in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh Library as part of the Scottish Confederation of University and Research Libraries (SCURL), a new open source platform for the digital dissemination of its Proceedings journal, SAIR series and Transactions journal.  Initial discussions on the development of a similar platform for book length projects are also underway.

A two day workshop was organised and hosted by University of Glasgow into new means of digital dissemination of archaeological information.  Topics and ideas discussed will help steer developments in digital archaeological information dissemination in Scotland.
