Open Access Monograph Series: Digital Biblical Studies

Digital Biblical Studies
ISSN: 2452-0586
Cover Digital Biblical Studies
The series aims to publish the latest research at the intersection of Digital Humanities and Biblical Studies, Ancient Judaism, and Early Christianity in order to demonstrate the transformation of research, teaching, cognition and the economy of knowledge in digital culture. In particular, DBS investigates and evaluates the practices and methodologies of Digital Humanities as applied to texts, inscriptions, archaeological data, and scholarship related to these fields.

The primary areas of focus are the digital edition of ancient manuscripts, the evolution of research between big data and close reading, the visualization of data, and the epistemological transformation of ancient studies through digital culture. DBS will encompass collected essays as well as monographs, with a particular emphasis on cutting-edge research. Several ancient languages are in the scope of the series, including ancient Greek, Hebrew, Latin, Arabic, Coptic, and Syriac.

Astronomical Diaries Digital

Astronomical Diaries Digital

The Astronomical Diaries (ADs) are a set of cuneiform tablets recording a variety of observed celestial, climatic, ecological, and economic phenomena, as well as giving accounts of historical events. They constitute one of the largest collections of observational data available from the Ancient World, consisting of more than 1,000 tablets and fragments dating from ca. 650-60 BCE. The texts are being published in an ongoing endeavor since the 1980s.
The ADs are a unique example of data gathering for the purpose of establishing an empirical basis for both astronomical and astrological prediction. The better part of the information contained usually relates to celestial – astronomical and meteorological – observations, and in particular to the position of the moon in the ecliptic during each night of a Babylonian lunar month. However, it has to be emphasized that the somewhat misleading term 'Astronomical Diaries' is the modern designation by their later editor A. Sachs, who was mainly interested in the astronomical content of the tablets. The more neutral Babylonian designation was nasāru ša ginê, meaning "regular observation". The astronomical section is usually followed by price quotations for foodstuffs and wool, and a note on the level of the river Euphrates. Often, a historical section is added. The ADs are indeed the single most important source for the political history of Late Achaemenid and Seleucid Babylonia. Among the historical accounts, the quite extensive report of the battle of Gaugamela and Alexander the Great's subsequent entry into the city of Babylon has attracted particular attention (AD -330A+B), as has the description of preparatory measures preceding the First Syrian War between the Ptolemaic and the Seleucid Empires in 274/3 BCE (AD -273B).
This corpus, the largest coherent body of empirical data gathered in antiquity, is unique, and its importance can hardly be overrated. Available on Oracc are currently ADART volumes I - III. Publication of further volumes in in progress.

Open Access Journal: Anemoi: Journal of Pre-Modern Studies

 [First posted in AWOL 3 April 2014, updated 20 May 2019]

Anemoi: Journal of Pre-Modern Studies
 Anemoi, a scholarly journal produced by students under the sponsorship of Dr. David Rohrbacher at New College of Florida in Sarasota, will release its next issue in Winter 2018. Anemoi is dedicated to publishing original critical and analytical papers from all disciplines within Classics, Medieval and Renaissance, and Early Modern Studies. Because this journal seeks to provide a voice and publication opportunities for new scholars, only undergraduate work will be considered.

Open Access Journal: Archaeo+Malacology Group Newsletter

 [First posted in AWOL 14 July 2009, updated 20 May 2019]

Archaeo+Malacology Group Newsletter
ISSN: 2055-7604
The A+M Group Newsletter was started independently by Janet Ridout-Sharpe following a talk she gave to fellow members of the Conchological Society of Great Britain and Ireland at the Natural History Museum in London in 2000, which described her work on archaeological shell assemblages undertaken, albeit on a very part-time basis, since the late 1970s. Having worked in virtual isolation, it was a revelation to discover that others had similar interests, and a brief note in The Conchologists Newsletter in September 2000 elicited responses from more than 30 people. Intended to encourage communication between archaeomalacologists, the first issue of the newsletter appeared in July 2001, originally under the title Malaco+Archaeology Group Newsletter, which was changed to its present title in January 2003 to reflect that of the newly-established ICAZ Archaeomalacology Working Group. The newsletter was initially published privately and sent to recipients individually by email. As interest in the subject grew, and because the newsletter and the ICAZ group were aimed at the same audience, the ICAZ
Archaeomalacology Working Group agreed to host the newsletter on its website from issue 5 in March 2004. Newsletter issues have appeared at roughly six-monthly intervals and include short articles, research notes, abstracts of publications, notices of meetings, requests for information, and anything else of potential interest to archaeomalacologists. Janet went on to edit 22 issues until January 2013 when she handed over the reins to Annalisa Christie. Cindy Nelson-Viljoen took over the role of newsletter editor in September 2016.
