The Society supports free and unlimited access to all content published in its online journals and books
Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland is a hybrid journal. The online volume (ISSN 2056-743X) is published once a year through the Society’s journal platform as a collection of open and subscriber content.
Please contact the Managing Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on Open Access publishing in PSAS. We offer a range of options and we are happy to work within the requirements of different research funders.
Authors are welcome to self-archive the unpublished version of their PSAS papers in institutional repositories. These can be deposited without embargo, under a CC BY-NC-ND licence and with an appropriate acknowledgement to PSAS.
Scottish Archaeological Internet Reports (ISSN 2056-7421) is an open access journal. A charge applies to all reports accepted after peer review to cover the costs of production and online hosting. The charge amount is calculated using the following formula:
(word-count/600) + (image-count/2) + (table-count/2) = (estimated page-count)
(estimated page-count) x £28 = total charge
For example, if your submission is 42,000 words long with 30 images and 10 tables, then the report will cost £2,520 to publish.
(42,000 words/600) + (30 images/2) + (10 tables/2) = 90 pages
90 x £28 = £2,520
Here is a breakdown of how the funds are used:
|Service function||Amount||Rounded percentage of total|
|Editorial & admin||£220||9%|
|Domain name registration||£4||0%|
