More Open Access Journals: Group 1

In an effort to make the List of Open Access Journals in Ancient Studies canonical and comprehensive, I will add additional journals in groups of twenty All of these have been accessible via Abzu for varying lengths of time. This offers me the opportunity to check all the links and repair the broken ones.

All of these are now listed here.

Two additional Croatian open access archaeology journals

Archaeologica Adriatica
ISSN: 1846-4807
Archaeologica Adriatica is a journal of exclusively archaeological character involved in explicating various archaeological themes and questions related to the Adriatic Sea region and the area bordering it. This definitely includes those areas that in earlier (archaeological, historical) periods composed cultural units. Journal will publish texts extending from the prehistoric period and the period of antiquity to the medieval period. Texts dealing with aspects of later periods will also be considered if they have clear connections to archaeology. Articles indirectly related to archaeology (ethnology and history, for instance) will also be published, as well as works dealing with methodology, museum studies. and the protection of cultural monuments. All texts will be published in Croatian. At present only extensive summaries will be published in foreign languages, but in future we hope to begin with parallel translations of the complete articles.

Vol. 2 No. 1

Vol. 2 No. 2

Vol. 1 No. 1

Histria archaeologica
The journal Histria archaeologica has been published periodically since 1970. It emerged from the need to publish archeological and museological results in one specialized journal. The articles are thematically related to archeology and art of the Istrian and Kvarner region.

Vol. 37 No. 37

Vol. 36 No. 36

Vol. 35 No. 35

Both of these titles are hosted by Hrcak Portal of scientific journals of Croatia is a large (196 journals) collection of online periodicals from Coratia supported by the Ministry of science education and sports, developed and maintained by the University computing centre and based on the idea from the Croatian Information and Documentation Society. All the ancient oriented titles in the collection are listed in AWOL's Alphabetical list of Open Access Journals in Ancient Studies.

Open Access to the Corpus Scriptorum Ecclesiasticorum Latinorum

Roger Pearse provides us with a list of volumes in the Corpus Scriptorum Ecclesiasticorum Latinorum available online [and for a more recent list see here]:

Corpus Scriptorum Ecclesiasticorum Latinorum

The Corpus Scriptorum Ecclesiasticorum Latinorum (CSEL) is a series of critical editions of the Latin Church Fathers published by a committee of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
The CSEL is intended to include the ecclesiastical authors who wrote in Latin from the late 2nd century AD until the death of Bede in 735. The texts are edited on the basis of all extant manuscripts and according to the principles of modern textual criticism and thus aim to provide a critical replacement for the corresponding volumes of the Patrologia Latina.
