The Journal of Open Archaeology Data (JOAD) features peer reviewed data papers describing archaeology datasets with high reuse potential. We work with a number of specialist and institutional data repositories to ensure that the associated data are professionally archived, preserved, and openly available. Equally importantly, the data and the papers are citable, and reuse is tracked.
JOAD data papers are relatively quick to create, and provide you with a peer-reviewed publication to gain credit for your data.
Mandate for Access to underlying dataset: YES
DOIs issued: YES
Note from FOSTER Editor: FOSTER recommends Data Journals that mandate that data is deposited in long-term data repositories, and persitent idetifiers issued (e.g. DOI). Jefferey Beall, Librairan at University of Colorado, maintains a widely cited credibility list of Open Access publishers at http://scholarlyoa.com/ . We recommend you verify the credibility of any peer-review journal that you are unfamiliar with, before you submit your publications.
