Cuneiform Digital Library Notes Update

News of CDLN (Cuneiform Digital Library Notes)

From Lance Allred:

I would like to announce the recent publication of several new
contributions to CDLN (Cuneiform Digital Library Notes):

*CDLN 2012:001 Robert K. Englund: Citing CDLI

*CDLN 2012:002 Zsombor Földi: The career of a high-ranking official inLarsa: on CUSAS 17, 54

*CDLN 2012:003 Robert K. Englund, Peter Damerow, Jürgen Renn, Stephen
J. Tinney, and Bertrand Lafont: A note to clarify CDLI's policy ofopen access, and of fair use of published images of cuneiforminscriptions

*CDLN 2012:004 David I. Owen: Additions and corrections to Owen,"Supplemental Texts ..." (CUSAS 6, pp. 233-334)

*CDLN 2012:005 Jerrold S. Cooper: A wine debt from Emar

*CDLN 2012:006 Jacob L. Dahl: New and old joins in the Louvreproto-Elamite tablet collection

The CDLN has recently changed its publication practices. New
submissions will appear in preprint status four times a year (January
1, April 1, July 1, and October 1; notices of new submissions will be
made to this list [Agade]). During the preprint period, authors will be able to make small, non-substantive changes (e.g. fixing typographical
errors) to their submissions. After two weeks, these submissions are
then archived.

The CDLN, together with its sister publications Cuneiform DigitalLibrary Bulletin (CDLB) and Cuneiform Digital Library Journal (CDLJ), are peer-reviewed publications that offer a persistent web presence under the auspices of the University of California system. As e-journals, the delay between submission and publication is well below that of academic print
journals, while the interaction with cuneiform artifacts documented in
the CDLI database offers obvious strengths for an interactive discourse. Authors should expect a two to four month interval between submission of a draft text with illustrations and its publication for substantive contributions to the CDLJ, at most two months for those made to the Bulletin, and approximately two weeks for the Notes that are conceived as an online venue for NABU-style communications that can include short philological or lexicographical contributions as well as regular updates of a more substantial nature describing the background or progress of, in particular, web-based research efforts (see <>).

Scholars are encouraged to send contributions to the CDLN at <>.
