The Specialist Agreement can be used by field project directors and researchers ("specialists") to help improve the integration of specialist data into the greater project. The collaboratively-produced document details key information necessary for effectively creating, documenting, and sharing data for future use and reuse. The Specialist Agreement is intended to 1) provide guidance on how to express identifiers needed to relate specialist outputs with the excavation data; and 2) have specialists specify the types of data they expected to produce, a timeline for producing the data, and expectations for sharing their data within and outside of the project. This version of the Specialist Agreement is a template that directors and specialists can use to help negotiate project-specific expectations and needs. The Specialist Agreement emerged from research conducted by the Secret Life of Data (SLO-data) project with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities (grant #PR-234235-16).
