OCHRE is an online service available to anyone who wishes to use it for a legitimate academic purpose. Although it is a centralized database, all data are organized according to “projects” conducted by one or more researchers. OCHRE can support an unlimited number of research projects, enabling each project team to organize and share information while preserving its own terminology and restricting access to its data. A project team may be of any size, ranging from a single scholar pursuing individual research to a large group of collaborating scholars and students. Projects and their individual members are identified by name and are given credit for their data and interpretations.
Contact OCHRE Data Service staff at the Oriental Institute for more information about how to set up your project in OCHRE.
