The Journal of Roman Studies is now available in JSTOR

The Journal of Roman Studies
ISSN: 0075-4358
JSTOR Coverage: 1911-2005 (Vols. 1-95)
Moving Wall: 3 years
The Journal of Roman Studies publishes papers in the full range of the field which the Roman Society was established to promote, i.e. 'the study of the history, archaeology, literature and art of Italy and the Roman Empire, from the earliest times down to about A.D. 700'. The emphasis is on historical themes, but there are also articles on literary, archaeological and art historical topics, including issues of cultural and intellectual history that cut across these categories. Papers are intended to make a fresh and significant contribution to the understanding of the Roman world and to stimulate further discussion. Articles primarily on the archaeology of Roman Britain are published in the Society's sister journal, Britannia.

The usual month of publication is November. The contents list and abstracts of the most recent volume are available on the Society's web-page, as are the contents of the five preceding volumes.

Open Access Books from The Syriac Studies Reference Library

The Syriac Studies Reference Library
The Syriac Studies Reference Library is a collection of rare and out-of-print titles that are of vital importance for Syriac studies. It is especially rich in early manuscript catalogs, dictionaries, and grammars, and contains many of the indispensable editions of Syriac texts that were produced in the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries. This collection was scanned from the holdings of the Semitics/ICOR Library of The Catholic University of America. More about the project…

Admin: AWOL by Email

In the righthand side bar is a form allowing you to receive notifications of updates to AWOL by email. This seems useful for those for whom news feeds are not. Your address will be safe. Neither AWOL nor feedburner will send spam. Since I announced this feature in early June, nearly three hundred people have joined the list.

If you are reading this in a newsreader you will have to click through to see the form in the sidebar. If you are reading this by email you have already done what's required. The sofware requires a confirmation of your request to join, and the fact that several have not confirmed makes me suspect that the confirmation requests are being trapped in spam filters. I'll be contacting all those people separately.

Finally. Please use the comment function available on each posting if you have something to say. And if you know of something I should consider including, please let me know (cejo at uchicago dot edu)

Zeitschrift für Papyrologie und Epigraphik
ISSN:0084-5388

Moving Wall: 3 years
The Zeitschrift für Papyrologie und Epigraphik, founded by Reinhold Merkelbach und Ludwig Koenen in 1967, publishes four to five volumes per year, altogether 162 volumes since 1967. It publishes articles of almost all disciplines connected with the Greek and Roman World, from literature, history, philosophy, culture, mainly, but not exclusively based on inscriptions and papyri, but also on coins and archaeological material.

The group of editors from different disciplines evaluate the incoming manuscripts including also referees from other countries.

Some recent volumes of ZPE are also available in open access:
