SASci Home: Anthropological Sciences

The Society for Anthropological Sciences (SAS) was organised to promote empirical research and social science in anthropology. The members of SAS want to further the development of anthropological science as empirical knowledge based on testable theory, sound research design and systematic methods for the collection and analysis of data. We seek to fulfill the historic mission of anthropology to describe and explain the range of variation in human biology, society, and culture across time and space.

Report: Anthropological Workshop on Digital Preservation and Access, May 18-20, 2009

Carol R. Ember, HRAF. On May 18-20, 2009, a workshop was held in Arlington, Virginia to evaluate and potentially decide on the basics of a strategic integrated four-field plan for digitally preservation and access (DPA) to anthropological research materials

There were observers from NSF, NEH, and Wenner-Gren. Discussions included data preservation, data access, metadata, digitization, long-term preservations, depositors, privacy and ethics, copyright and intellectual property, and funding/support and field-wide coordination.

The workshop results will be disseminated online to the broader anthropological community reqesting commentary and suggestions for revision. Future steps are to seek funding to set up the computer infrastructure, organisation and identify processes and issues.
