Introduction: Note 4

A number of scholars in the field of archaeology are attempting to creatively address this publishing problem. Projects that are trying to closely tie scholarly argumentation with dynamic 3D content include: Diane Favro and Christopher Johanson, “Death in Motion: Funeral Processions in the Roman Forum,” Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians 69, no. 1 (2010): 12–37, http://www.jstor.org/stable/10.1525/jsah.2010.69.1.12; Rachel Opitz, Marcello Mogetta, and Nicola Terrenato, eds., A Mid-Republican House from Gabii (Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press, 2016), https://quod.lib.umich.edu/g/gabii; Elaine Sullivan and Lisa Snyder, “Digital Karnak: An Experiment in Publication and Peer Review of Interactive, Three-Dimensional Content,” Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians 76, no. 4 (2017), https://doi.org/10.1525/jsah.2017.76.4.464; Nicola Lercari et al., “Immersive Visualization and Curation of Archaeological Heritage Data: Çatalhöyük and the Dig@IT App,” Journal of Archaeological Method and Theory 25, no. 2 (2018): 368–92, https://doi.org/10.1007/s10816-017-9340-4; Jennifer von Schwerin et al., “The MayaArch3D Project: A 3D WebGIS for Analyzing Ancient Architecture and Landscapes,” Literary and Linguistic Computing 28, no. 4 (2013): 736–53, https://doi.org/10.1093/llc/fqt059; and the scholarly journal Digital Applications in Archaeology and Cultural Heritage (launched in 2014), which allows for the embedding of some 3D formats within articles, https://www.journals.elsevier.com/digital-applications-in-archaeology-and-cultural-heritage.
