Open Series in Prehistoric Archaeology (OSPA)

Open Series in Prehistoric Archaeology (OSPA) is an international series of monographs, conference proceedings, and edited volumes with the thematically focus on European prehistoric archaeology.

In the spirit of Open Science, OSPA was founded to make research of innovative data-driven, new theoretical and methodological approaches freely available to the research community in a digital online format, while producing sustainable print-on-demand print copies. We closely align with the scientific needs for accessibility, transparency, reproducibility, and possible independence from dominating research agendas.

The publications will undergo scientific quality assurance (peer review) and in all cases will be published Gold Open Access. Further, it is guaranteed that datasets, computer code, software or else will be stored on long-term available repositories to meet the standards of reproducible research.
