'Journal of Intercultural and Interdisciplinary Archaeology' (JIIA) online since 10 october 2003, then shaped as Archaeological Disciplinary Repository 'JIIA Eprints Repository' aligned with Open Access Initiative Protocol (OAI-PMH), container of resources in perspective of Open Knowledge, Open Content, Digital Libraries; it is made up of a presentation potal (http://www.jiia.it) and of an Open Access Repository (http://eprints.jiia.it:8080/), specialized in archaeological research (at the beginning it was JIIA MyOpia Repository, implemented at the start of the year 2005), the JIIA Eprints Repository (since 4 april 2006), first Open Access Archaeological Repository in Italy and among the first in the world with resources full-text, aligned to OAI-PMH protocol, in archaeology subject.
The scientists usually put into Open Archives to make freely accessibile your research (physicists, scientists, etc.), the archaeologists instead are very different from others scientists because they don’t disseminate online their research (http://www.openarchives.org/).
My projecy Open Access to Archaeological Research consists in doing an intercultural archaeology, in perspective of development, promotion and diffusion of scientific archaeological culture.
My first aim is to commission and collect in the JIIA Eprints Repository translations of archaeological studies and researches (pre-prints or post-prints with metadata) of researchers of east Europe, of Near East, and of others countries of the Mediterranean basin, from their original language, very little known, to english to maximize their research.
Project's hinge obviously will be Journal of Intercultural and Interdisciplinary Archaeology (acronym JIIA) and related JIIA Eprints Repository.
'JIIA Eprints Repository' is an Archaeological Disciplinary Repository aligned with Open Access Initiative Protocol (OAI-PMH) and linked to 'Journal of Intercultural and Interdisciplinary Archaeology' (jiia.it/jiia.eu) . The Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting, OAI-PMH, is a low-barrier mechanism for repository interoperability. Data Providers are repositories that expose structured metadata via OAI-PMH. Service Providers then make OAI-PMH service requests to harvest that metadata. OAI-PMH is a set of six verbs or services that are invoked within HTTP.
In this architecture 'JIIA Eprints Repository' is a Data Provider.
Antonella D'Ascoli is Owner and Managing Director of this complex infrastructure.
