Open Access Monograph Series: Black Sea Studies


Black Sea Studies

BSS 16 cover
The Black Sea, known to the Greeks as Pontos Euxeinos or the "Hospitable Sea", is the focus of this series, which is concerned with ethnic relations, cultural interaction, and economic interdependence in the Black Sea region in the period c. 700 BC-AD 325, but with a main focus on the years ca. 400 BC-100 AD.

Although the Black Sea region is viewed as a whole, attention is concentrated on the north and south coasts of the Black Sea region, i.e. of modern Russia, Ukraine and Turkey.

Publications devote special attention to centre-periphery relations, to cultural interaction as an expression of ethnic and cultural strategies, and the analyses are based on a long-term view of the Black Sea region as a link between Asia and Europe.

All the articles in the books can be downloaded as read-only pdf-files.

Syria, an annual journal, has been published uninterruptedly since 1920 by the French Institute of the Near East (Amman, Beirut, Damascus, Aleppo). The review is dedicated to the history and archaelogy of the Semitic Near East (Cyprus included) from Prehistory to the Islamic conquest. It publishes articles in all the disciplines related to this field of research, archaology, epigraphy, philology, history, art history ; these articles are sometimes gathered together in thematic issues, but usually each issue of Syria tries to give - by means of 12 to 18 articles -, a varied overview of research on the Ancient Near East. The languages in use are French, English, German, Italian, and Spanish. From time to time, the review also publishes topical notes, and normaly devotes in each issue an extensive section to reading notes on books published on the Ancient Near East.
Syria, qui paraît depuis 1920 sans interruption, est publiée par l’Institut Français du Proche-Orient, en une seule livraison annuelle. La revue se consacre à l’histoire et l’archéologie du Proche-Orient sémitique (y compris Chypre) de la préhistoire à la conquête islamique. Elle publie des articles dans toutes les disciplines de ce champ de recherche, archéologie, épigraphie, philologie, histoire, histoire de l’art ; ces articles peuvent être quelquefois regroupés en dossiers thématiques, mais le plus souvent chaque volume tente de donner, à travers 12 à 18 articles, un panorama varié de la recherche au Proche-Orient ancien. Les langues employées sont le français, l’anglais, l’allemand, l’italien et l’espagnol. Tous les articles sont précédés d’un résumé en français, en anglais et en arabe. La revue publie aussi à l’occasion de courtes notes d’actualité, et consacre dans chaque numéro un épais cahier aux recensions d’ouvrages parus sur le Proche-Orient ancien.

Open Access Journal: Littera Antiqua

 [First posted in AWOL 22 August 2012, updated 29 August 2016]

Littera Antiqua
ISSN 2082-9264
http://www.litant.eu/BOOK1.jpg
W imieniu Redakcji zapraszam Państwa do składania artykułów, recenzji i rozpraw z zakresu nauk dotyczących antyku grecko-rzymskiego w internetowym czasopiśmie naukowym „Littera Antiqua”, które jest wydawane w Instytucie Filologii Klasycznej Katolickiego Uniwersytetu Lubelskiego Jana Pawła II. Szczególnie zapraszamy filologów klasycznych, historyków, filozofów oraz wszystkich naukowców zajmujących się starożytnością.

Czasopismo przewidziane jest jako półrocznik. Jego nośnikiem jest internet. Nad utrzymaniem poziomu naukowego czuwają Recenzenci z różnych ośrodków akademickich w Polsce i Europie. Przyjmowane są artykuły w językach kongresowych, a także w języku polskim. Jednym z podstawowych założeń utworzenia czasopisma jest możliwość wykorzystania najnowszych technologii informacyjnych, takich jak prezentacje, filmy, muzyka, zdjęcia, co jest niemożliwe w tradycyjnych czasopismach naukowych ukazujących się drukiem.

Chcemy, aby czasopismo realizowało trzy główne cele: naukowy, popularyzatorski oraz dydaktyczny. Dzięki zastosowaniu nowoczesnych nośników możliwe będzie publikowanie wyników badań naukowych zaraz po otrzymaniu pozytywnych recenzji. Możliwości „medialne” czasopisma słuą uatrakcyjnieniu wyników badań, przez co przyczyniają się do popularyzacji poszczególnych dyscyplin naukowych także wśród młodzieży, której coraz częstszym źródłem wiedzy jest internet.

Wykorzystanie jako nośnika internetu sprawia, że publikacja dociera do znacznie szerszego grona zainteresowanych niż wydania tradycyjne, a także jest doskonałą promocją polskiej myśli naukowej zagranicą.
On behalf of the Editorial Board I invite you to submit your articles, reviews and dissertations concerning Graeco-Roman antiquity in our newly formed, interdisciplinary scholarly web journal 'Littera Antiqua', which will be published in the Institute of Classical Studies of the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin.

 We especially encourage classical philologists, historians, philosophers and all the scholars whose field of study is antiquity. The journal is planned to be published semi-annually. The primary version is online version (open access).


 

 The reviewers from different academic centres of Poland and Europe will watch over its scholarly standards. Articles which are published in "Littera Antiqua" are indexed in CEEOL and DOAJ. Our application is also considered by Index Copernicus.

 The basic reasons behind the creation of the new journal are: publication results of research as soon as possible, possibility of academic discussion, the possibility of using for its purposes new information technology such as presentations, animations, music and photographs, which is not possible in the traditional scholarly journals published in print.
