21st Century Data, 21st Century Publications: 3D Model Publication and building the Peer Reviewer Community

The development of a publication framework and peer reviewer community for scholarly publication of the three-dimensional models and complex datasets produced by archaeological research.

The preservation and dissemination of 3D archaeological data, and the adaptation of peer review to accommodate publications based on complex digital data and models, are key emergent issues in 21st-century archaeology and related fields in the humanities. The core problems this project addresses are (a) developing a process for the peer reviewed publication of the kinds of digital 3d models and complex, interactive datasets projects like ours are now producing, and (b) building a community of peer reviewers with the necessary skills and background to properly evaluate these publications. This project will support the creation of a pilot publication, which will be the focus of efforts to define a publication medium which effectively communicates the narratives constructed with these complex data and models and will move towards defining the process, or framework, for larger scale publications, providing the training and knowledge transfer needed.
