### Welcome to the home page for the [SAA](http://saa.org) Open Science Interest Group Here you can find documents and resources relating to the OSIG's activities. We have a low-volume email list you can join here: https://groups.google.com/g/saa-osig There is also an SAA e-community page here: [http://saa.org/e-communities](http://saa.org/e-communities). To post your pre-print at the Socarxiv, [start here](https://osf.io/preprints/socarxiv/submit). #### News and Events - SAA2021 OSIG Sponsored Forum: [Teaching Integrity in Empirical Archaeology.](https://osf.io/jfdb6/) See [page 124](https://documents.saa.org/container/docs/default-source/doc-annualmeeting/final-program/2021_saa-final-program.pdf) of the program. - SAA2021 OSIG Sponsored Workshop: [Teaching Integrity in Empirical Archaeology.](https://osf.io/jfdb6/) See [page 30](https://documents.saa.org/container/docs/default-source/doc-annualmeeting/final-program/2021_saa-final-program.pdf) of the program. - SAA2019 OSIG Sponsored Workshop: [Transparent and Open Archaeological Science Using R](https://benmarwick.github.io/2019-04-10-saa/).
