Set up in our shared 20th anniversary year, Internet Archaeology and the Archaeology Data Service have combined forces to launch the Open Access Archaeology Fund, with the specific aim of supporting the publishing and archiving costs of researchers who have no means of institutional support. We are asking you to support our efforts by pledging a recurring or single gift.
We are grateful for all gifts and to say thank you, everyone who donates over £25 will receive a token of our appreciation - one of our highly desirable red USB trowels. A limited number of special edition orange and purple trowels are also available for those who make larger donations (Orange for donations of £50-£74.99 and purple for £75 and above). Every gift helps. As the Fund develops we will publish here the total funds raised and list the subsequent articles/archives assisted by your generosity. Thank you for your support.
We will endeavour to process donations as quickly as possible, but in the current climate, please forgive us if we can't send your trowel straightaway.
Prospective authors who have no other funding options may wish to apply to the fund to cover their publication and archiving costs. The application form is here but please see our Author Guidelines (Publication fees and funding) for information on when and how to apply.
Successful applicants are asked to help promote the fund and make calls to attract more donations, as a way to 'pay it forward' for all the applicants who come after you.
