Eric Kansa of the Open Context project will share recent developments in data publication in Open Context, a platform used to publish and archive research data and digital documentation with an emphasis on archaeological data. What kinds of research are enabled when data from different projects are brought together? What issues and challenges emerge for research data management and for new scholarship in general? Eric will talk about the example from Classical Archaeology and North American Archeology (with Michael Black from the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology).
