Abstract. This paper looks at the current state of e-research strategies in rock art on the example of the Global Rock Art Database, global and Australian e-research communities. It examines current practice, attitudes and requirements for discipline specific research methods in an integrated data management cycle approach. Analysing qualitative and quantitative data collected between 2012 and 2018 through conversations, consultations, a cross-sectional questionnaire and a longitudinal study of the Rock Art Database, the paper compares it’s findings to previous interdisciplinary studies within e-research environments. The resulting data illustrates current practice and trends in rock art within an e-research context and aims to inform future best practice towards integrated data models digitally connecting international research data.
