These are a few examples to show it has been cited a number of times in many scholarly works -- all the sources that cite it can be found here in Google Scholar https://scholar.google.ca/scholar?cites=13627279837402623804&as_sdt=2005&sciodt=0,5&hl=en --- the author of the paper in question is Bryant Wood who has a PhD in Syro-Palestinian Archaeology and was the excavation director for the ancient site Khirbet el-Maqatir, which is a site that is part of the main discussion in the source that I'm asking evaluation for.
In other words, the author of the paper is a PhD in the field, the paper is peer-reviewed and published into a respected archaeological and academic journal, and it has been cited many times in scholarly material. I think this easily qualifies WP:IRS. Any thoughts on agreeing or disagreeing?Korvex (talk) 04:16, 28 January 2017 (UTC) The edit itself, which Korvex doesn't challenge, is "although most archaeologists support the identification of Ai with et-Tell, there is some disagreement. Bryant Wood has identified it with Khirbet el-Maqatir but this has not gained acceptance.[1][2]" The paper in question, by Creationist archaeologist Bryant Wood, is in fact cited in those two sources. He wants to add a link to the literalist website with which Wood is associated, containing a copy of the paper. Wood was indeed excavation director of a dig funded and organised by the biblical literalist grolup Associates for Biblical Research[42] where Wood is its research director. I'd say that in this article and similar ones we should never use Wood on his own. The site occupies about 2.5 to 3 acres, but the Late Bronze Age settlement may be slightly smaller (Kennedy 2011: 17; Wood 2008: 230)." The second citation is from "Wood 2008: 230" -- Bryant Wood's only publication in 2008 with a 230th page that talks about Khirbet el-Maqatir is in fact 'The Search for Joshua's Ai' by Bryant Wood, the very source in question for reliability. As for the 'creationism' Doug talks about -- I've already been over this with Doug and that is absolutely irrelevant as creationism has nothing to do with the source at hand, and the fact that Wood believes in creationism is just about as relevant to this issue as Newton's belief in alchemy is with the reliability of his work on gravity. Wood is in fact a PhD archaeologist with a good amount of published work in the field and the excavation director of Khirbet el-Maqatir. Just imagine if an Atheist academic was barred from publishing in a peer-reviewed journal because he believes the universe randomly arose, there would be an outcry and accusations of bigotry all over the place, rightfully so. Guillaume does indeed cite Wood, for one sentence: "Maybe ancient Bethel was sited elsewhere, at el-Bireh rather than Beitin, and Beitin was Beth-Aven" (p227).

In the Sep./Oct. 1990 issue of BAR, Piotr Bienkowski wrote an article disputing Dr. Wood's conclusions. The following article engages with Bienkowski's criticisms, providing the reader with an in-depth analysis of some of the work done at Jericho, and demonstrating Dr. Wood's expertise and thorough familiarity with the evidence. This article provides some additional data not published in Dr. Wood's first BAR article, thus adding to the mountain of evidence demonstrating that Jericho was destroyed around 1400 B.C., the same time the Bible records that the events of Joshua 3-6 took place.

"Still, the widespread presence of so many slingstones suggests a battle was fought here during the Bronze Age," said Wood.


theaquilareport.com

Bryant Wood, research director of Associates for Biblical Research (ABR) and director of excavations at Khirbet el-Maqatir, believes the problem is not with the accuracy of the Bible but rather with misidentification of the site of Ai.
Wood argues in a scholarly paper that Khirbet el-Maqatir, a site ABR has excavated since 1995, is the only site that meets all of the biblical and extra-biblical criteria for the location of Ai. Furthermore, Wood explains, prior to modern scholarship, local tradition placed the site of Ai at Khirbet el-Maqatir. "This is a significant discovery since it provides an independent date for the fortress apart from pottery," Wood said in a press release.
