Special Issue on Digital Scholarship in archaeology

The call for contributions to a special JCAA issue on Digital Scholarship in archaeology is now open!

The JCAA is a peer-reviewed, open access, electronic journal, featuring papers in all the disciplines related to digital archaeology, including 3D modelling, spatial analysis and remote sensing, geophysics, other field recording techniques, databases and semantic web, statistics and data mining, simulation modelling, network analysis and digital reconstructions of the past.

This prospective JCAA special issue aims to facilitate discussion on the theoretical and philosophical aspects of digital scholarship in archaeology as well as the implications of the use of digital technologies and computational methods across the extent of the archaeological knowledge chain: from discovery, through observation, explanation, and dissemination. How are research, synthesis, practice, and teaching within archaeology mediated and transformed by digital approaches?

Deadlines: June 15th (abstracts), December 31st (full papers)

Local Host: Digital Curation Unit/Athena Research Centre, Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports, Association of Greek Archaeologists

Venue: Association of Greek Archaeologists

About this Training School

The training school aims to get participants acquainted with the goals, theories, concepts and methods of the study of archaeological practices, by examining state-of-the-art digital field methods and how these have changed archaeological knowledge production in science and heritage management. During the training school we will explore how archaeologists are conducting fieldwork and how they document their work and findings in different countries and contexts. We will further examine how this analysis of archaeological knowledge work can contribute to developing fieldwork practices and the use and usability of archaeological findings by different stakeholder groups.
