Academic Freedom, Data, and Job Performance in the Panopticon (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Eric Kansa.

This paper explores the challenges in recognizing and rewarding greater openness and collaboration in archaeology, given neoliberal institutional realities. After years of advocacy, governments and major granting foundations have embraced many elements of the open science reform agenda. The White House recently made open access and open data in research a policy goal, and it is exploring other policies to promote "reproducibility" in federally-funded research, including archaeology. Despite open...

Beyond Sharks and Laser Beams: Lessons on Informatics Needs, Open Behaviors, and Analytics Practices to Achieve Archaeological Big Data, as Learned from the Digital Index of North American Archaeology (DINAA) (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Joshua Wells. David Anderson. Eric Kansa. Sarah Kansa. Stephen Yerka.

Demands for archaeological "big data" must move strategically beyond buzzwords. Sciences and humanities that are successfully augmenting their workflows with ubiquitous computing are necessarily dealing with issues of accessibility, interoperability, and fundamental questions about the intended utility of core collection strategies at massive scales. Fortunately for archaeology, solutions to these issues are achievable through emphases on existing research networks and readily "open" solutions....

Open Science, Core Facilities, and Archaeology (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Fraser Neiman. Jillian Galle.

                  The past decade has witnessed two onging transformations in the ways in which scholars create and disseminate knowledge in the natural and social sciences. The first is the open science movement, which aims to make the entire research process and its products, transparent, replicable, and accessible to colleagues and the public. The second is the emergence of "core facilities", organizations that offer widely shared technical resources that individuals researchers would have...

Reproducible research in archaeology: Basic principles and common tools (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ben Marwick.

Scientific progress depends on the evaluation of findings through replication. While exact replication of results is often infeasible because of limitations of time and resources, a minimal standard of reproducibility is emerging as a norm of practice in contemporary computational and biological sciences. This standard refers to authors making available the data and code used to generate the key figures and tables of their publications. In this paper I review some approaches to reproducible...
