Cotsen Digital Archive

by carolinetam last modified November 05, 2008 01:37 PM

The Cotsen Digital Archive is an ongoing initiative that aims to archive faculty archaeological research and data, host Cotsen Institute of Archaeology publications in PDF format, and link to born-digital publications that will be published by the Cotsen Institute. This initiative includes a number of different programs, which will be listed here as they become available.

Cotsen Institute of Archaeology e-Scholarship Repository

The repository is a service of the eScholarship initiative of the California Digital Library, and is an open-access publishing platform that offers UC departments, centers, and research units direct control over the creation and dissemination of the full range of their scholarship, including journals and peer-reviewed series, postprints, and seminar papers. These materials are freely available to the public online.

In an effort to produce innovative digital publications, the newly named Cotsen Institute of Archaeology Press (formerly the Publications Unit) collaborated with eScholarship and UCLA Digital Library to create our branded account to launch the upcoming Cotsen Digital Archaeology (CDA) series. The CDA series presents the results of original archaeological and conservation research through digitally initiated and accessible publications that integrate innovative multimedia and data links. The series is made available through eScholarship at no cost to consumers. All digital publications will be available in print format for a fee through print-on-demand services. 

Our first publication in this series is in production and is edited by Ellen Pearlstein. Additionally, Cotsen Institute Press will offer postprints of previously published titles online as well.

Cotsen Digital Archaeology series has also been added to the Journals and Peer Review list and can be seen at:


eScholarship provides alternative publication services online for the UC community, supports widespread distribution of the materials that result from research and teaching at UC, and fosters new models of scholarly publishing through development and application of advanced technologies. Cotsen Institute Press is proud to be participating in this publishing program, and look forward to launching the series.
