AJA and open access
In the contex of his "Mediterranean Ceramics Reference Stability Report, Number 4" at Mediterranean Ceramics, Sebastian Heath makes some comments on the changes underway at AJA online. The AIA will cease to make PDFs of the American Journal of Archaeology's articles available for free download. Articles will be available via the commercial service Atypon. The change was announced in this letter from Naomi Norman, the AJA Editor-in-Chief. It is not clear, to me at least, what will become of the exsting five years of AJA. (None of them, by the way, can be easily printed). For the time being they remain accessible, and there are copies of some of the archive at the Wayback Machine.
