project - a European archaeological archive cross-search portal - the
product itself is still under development and several new archive partners
are scheduled for inclusion in the next 6 months, but it gives a good idea
of the proposed project functionality, all with an 'easy listening'

Open Access SBL Greek New Testament

SBL Greek New Testament 
Logos Bible Software and the Society of Biblical Literature are pleased to announce the release of a new, critically edited Greek New Testament.

Reliable

The SBLGNT is edited by Michael W. Holmes, who utilized a wide range of printed editions, all the major critical apparatuses, and the latest technical resources and manuscript discoveries as he established the text. The result is a critically edited text that differs from the Nestle-Aland/United Bible Societies text in more than 540 variation units.

Freely Available

The SBLGNT is available as a free download. Students, teachers, pastors, and interested laypersons can use the SBLGNT right now for research, writing, and study—at no cost.

Exchangeable

The text of the SBLGNT has been encoded in a Unicode-compliant font so users can exchange files easily without having to secure a special Greek font. Users may use SBLGreek or any other Unicode font that supports the full range of Greek characters.

Versatile

In addition to granting professors and students permission to use the SBLGNT freely in their writings, the End-User License Agreement encourages the development of new electronic and print products based on the SBLGNT through a liberal permission and licensing policy.

Available in Print

A reasonably-priced professionally produced print edition of the SBLGNT is also available directly from SBL. It includes the full apparatus of variant readings from the four primary editions on which the SBLGNT is based.
With Smyth-sewn binding, a Kivar cover, and reader-friendly type, the print edition provides a durable, affordable alternative for scholarly research and classroom use.

Open Access Journal: Popular Anthropology Magazine

Popular Anthropology Magazine
About Us Our Short-Term Goals

1. To provide people across the globe with anthropological data and ideas that they probably would not receive had we not provided it.

2. To give social scientists the opportunity to actually have their research read. Most manuscripts are merely glanced through.

3. To eventually publish the online magazine in a variety of languages, including but not limited to: Spanish, French, Portuguese, German, and Arabic. Knowledge does not belong to English-speaking people only.

4. We will always be a FREE magazine so that the public and universities around the world can have access to important manuscripts. However, in areas that do not have access to the internet, we would like to someday publish the magazine in hard copy and distribute the magazine free of charge to low-income university libraries.

5. To obtain a healthy number of advertisers in order to become a paying market. We want to be able to pay scholars for submitting their articles to the magazine AND to set up scholarships and fellowships for undergraduate and graduate students in the social sciences; these scholarships and fellowships will be available to students of every nation, ethnicity, gender, and religion. We would also like to be able to provide traveling expenses for non-US scholars to travel to association meetings and conferences who would not be able to attend otherwise.

6. To incorporate as a not-for-profit.

Our Long-Term Goals

1. To maintain a Theses and Dissertations Database from around the world, free of charge, through our website. It is extremely difficult for US citizens who are not in academia to access theses and dissertations published in the United States. However, it is even more difficult for non-US citizens to get a hold of and read these records. Likewise, most non-US theses and dissertations are unavailable to people in the United States.  The data included in these manuscripts took years to conduct and complete. Although some of these works eventually turn into published monographs, many “lay on the shelf collecting dust.” This is something Popular Anthropology Magazine seeks to change. Submission to the database will be voluntary.

Network for the Study of Archaic and Classical Greek Song Wiki

Network for the Study of Archaic and Classical Greek Song
Welcome to the website of the Network for the Study of Archaic and Classical Greek Song. This network was founded in the Spring of 2007 at the initiative of Ewen Bowie (University of Oxford) and André Lardinois (Radboud University Nijmegen). Its main purpose is to share information and exchange ideas between scholars interested in the study of archaic and classical lyric, elegiac and iambic poetry.
The website is hosted by the Department of Classics at the Radboud University Nijmegen. The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research, NWO, has kindly provided funds both for the setting up of this website and for meetings of the network in the first three years. The network is also supported by the National Research School in Classical Studies in the Netherlands, OIKOS.

For more information about the Network and its activities, see the Statement of Purpose.

Coming soon from the ACLS Humanities E-Book Project

The ACLS Humanities E-Book Project has announced:

An earlier posting in AWOL: The Ancient World in ACLS Humanities E-Book includes those titles in the collection relating to the ancient world, known by me. If you are within a subscribing domain or proxy server or if you are a subscribing individual you should be able to get access via the links I've given. If not, you or your institution will need to subscribe. That list has 244 items.  I'll update it when the new set goes live.
