Updates on the list of Open Access Journals in Ancient Studies
I first assembled the Alphabetical list of Open Access Journals in Ancient Studies in observance of Open Access Week 2009. It was based on journals cited in AWOL since its beginning in January 2009 . At that time the list included more than two hundred titles - a surprisingly large number - or so I thought at the time. In an effort to make the List canonical and comprehensive, I began adding additional journals in groups of twenty. All (or nearly all) of these have been accessible via Abzu for varying lengths of time. This process offered me the opportunity to verify all the links and repair the broken ones. On February 17, 2010 the list reached six hundred titles, and the post date was updated. On July 7, 2010 the list reached seven hundred titles, and the post date was updated. And now, on its first anniversary, and in honor of Open Access Week 2010, I am again updated the post date, though the link remains stable. At that time I removed the version history from the main list and moving it here. On May 5, 2011, with the addition of Engramma the list reached nine hundred titles and the post date was updated. On September 28, 2011, the list reached one thousand titles, and the post date was updated on October 1st, 2011. On February 14, 2012, with the addition of Arqueología y Territorio: Revista del Programa de Doctorado "Arqueología y Territorio", the list reached eleven hundred titles, and the post date was updated.
JURN: search over 3,000 arts & humanities ejournals.
This project began with a series of entries under the heading AWOL on the Ancient World Bloggers Group Blog. I have decided to move it to its own space here beginning in 2009.
The primary focus of the project is notice and comment on open access material relating to the ancient world, but I will also include other kinds of networked information as it comes available.
The ancient world is conceived here as it is at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World at New York University, my academic home. That is, from the Pillars of Hercules to the Pacific, from the beginnings of human habitation to the late antique / early Islamic period.
The Institute for the Study of the Ancient World was founded by Shelby White and the Leon Levy Foundation.
Much of what appears here will also appear in Abzu, and a newsfeed from there is included below
