ISEAA is pleased to be able to begin to share access to chapters in the third volume in the Ban Chiang monograph suite on metallurgy. The University of Pennsylvania Press, which is publishing the Ban Chiang Metals Monograph series, has a 12 month embargo period for posting copies of work online. Essentially, authors must wait 12 months after their work is published before they may begin posting copies of it. Authors may post on personal websites, on noncommercial discipline-specific servers, and within noncommercial digital repositories of nonprofit institutions with which they are currently affiliated. This means we cannot post chapters on ResearchGate or Academia.edu as these are commercial websites, but we can post on ISEAA servers. Since Ban Chiang, Northeast Thailand, Volume 2C: The Metal Remains in Regional Context was published in December 2019, we can now begin to post selected content.
Today we are posting the brief first chapter of Volume 2C introducing the other chapters, “Providing a Regional Socioeconomic Context for Prehistoric Metallurgy in Thailand” by Joyce White. Read it here.
