2014 Southeastern Archaeology Publication Survey Data (2014)
DATASET Bardolph Dana. VanDerwarker Amber.

These data are the results of a survey disseminated to the Southeastern Archaeology (SEAC) membership in March 2014. The survey was designed to to better understand authorial behavior (i.e., what factors contribute to decisions about manuscript submission and publication rates among southeastern archaeologists). Our goal was to solicit feedback from SEAC members in all job settings (students, academics, CRM, government, museum, etc.), including those who have never published research or do not...

Compiling Tikal Report 15 (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only H Loten.

Two issues arise in compiling Tikal Report 15 posthumously. Between 1960's field-work and current museum policy illustration formats have changed so that drawings previously inked for photo-reduction are now useless. Secondly, Tikal Report 15 presents data collected under Peter Harrison's direction. But all figure items have been redrawn digitally with inescapable interpretation, so a question of authorship cannot be avoided. SAA 2015 abstracts made available in tDAR courtesy of the Society for...

A Critical Evaluation of Recent Gendered Publishing Trends in American Archaeology (2014)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Bardolph Dana.

This paper explores the relationship between gender identity and patterns of authorship in peer-reviewed journals as a lens for examining gendered knowledge production and the current status and visibility of men and women in American archaeology. Drawing on feminist theory and the feminist critique of science, I examine how gender imbalance and a lack of diversity continue to affect the work that archaeologists produce. The evaluation of publishing trends serves as a means to investigate...

Exploring Cultural Resource Management’s Contribution to Historical Archaeology, 1967–2014 (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Corey D. McQuinn.

Since the signing of the National Historic Preservation Act in 1966, the Society for Historical Archaeology and the cultural resource management (CRM) industry have grown along parallel, but slightly different, paths. While CRM archaeologists make up more than half of the SHA’s membership, and the industry arguably generates more raw archaeological data each year than any other sector of the discipline, its representation in the journal is disproportionately low. This study presents the results...

Gender Equity in Archaeology Project
PROJECT Uploaded by: Dana Bardolph

This project examines the relationship between gender, author, and editorship in conference presentations and publications as a lens to examine current disciplinary sociopolitics and the relative contributions of men and women to archaeological research. This project has been both broad in scope, encompassing the field of American archaeology at large, as well as regionally focused on researchers in the southeastern United States. Archived data include data spreadsheets of publication data and...

The Hidden Costs of Archaeology (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Willeke Wendrich.

Archaeologists have realized for a long time that in the struggle to fund field work, working on publications and the cost of publishing archaeological results are often not covered. With the increase in digital recording and digital publishing this problem is not solved. On the contrary, it is exacerbated by a number of additional tasks and responsibilities. These range from a changing publication model, where open access is becoming increasingly important, and journals request payment to make...

Opening the Black Box: Enabling Transparency in Scientific Computation (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only C. Michael Barton. Marco Janssen. Dawn Parker. Allen Lee. Sean Bertin.

Reproducibility, enabled by transparency in reporting, is the gold standard for science. It is not systematically repeating scientific research, but the potential to do so that maintains high quality in research practice. Reproducibility also drives scientific advance because it enables new research to build on prior accomplishments. This ethos is especially effective because it emerged from within the scientific community. Archaeology espouses this reproducibility ethos, made all the more...

Resuscitating an Archaeology Project: The Helmand-Sistan Project in Afghanistan, 1971-1977 (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Mitch Allen. William B. Trousdale.

The Helmand-Sistan Project, conducted jointly by American and Afghan archaeologists, was the first prolonged systematic survey and excavation of the lower Helmand River region of southwest Afghanistan. It identified over 200 sites dating from the third millennium BCE to the 15th century CE and conducted excavations at a dozen of them. Military action abruptly halted the project, caused the demise of its collection of material culture stored in Afghanistan, and limited publication to a few...

This document represents the survey questions disseminated to the Southeastern Archaeology (SEAC) membership in March 2014 via the online survey platform SurveyMonkey. The full results of the survey are available within the Gender Equity in Archaeology Project as well.

Where My Ladies At? The Fight to Erase the Gender Gap in Publication (2021)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Samantha Lagos.

This is an abstract from the "SAA 2021: General Sessions" session, at the 86th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. Feminist scholars have observed the gender disparity in archaeological knowledge production since the 1980s. Since then, both broad, discipline-wide, and smaller regionally focused studies have repeatedly demonstrated the same pattern of male-dominated publication trends. The lack of diverse voices in archaeological research has implications for the questions...
