CDLI News: "cdli tablet" for the iPad

Announcing cdli tablet
We are delighted to announce the launch of "cdli tablet" for the iPad, combining short text with images of cuneiform inscriptions and related archaeological artifacts. Sponsored by the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative (Los Angeles & Berlin) and programmed by Sai Deep Tetali, graduate student of UCLA's Computer Science Department, the app gives specialists in the fields of cuneiform studies, Near Eastern archaeology and art history the opportunity to present facets of the writing culture of ancient Mesopotamia to a broad community of experts and informal learners. Short descriptions of the historical relevance of selected text and text-related artifacts together with images that can, but need not be taken from CDLI’s growing open access file archives, are prepared and posted to app pages. Ordered by calendar date in groups of from several to thirty pages, the resulting 'themes' give a running account of these experts' ideas. The free app is conceived as a vehicle for the introduction, to learning communities of all ages, of a variety of chosen topics in cuneiform studies, and in the digital preservation and worldwide dissemination of the shared cultural heritage of ancient Mesopotamia.

Our launch theme is a set of entries prepared by Jacob Dahl (University of Oxford) on proto-Elamite accounts that makes extensive use of high-resolution images of Susa tablets in the collection of the Louvre; we will follow this topic with others dealing with 3rd millennium bricks and brick stamps; cuneiform building plans; the Northwest Palace of Nimrud and Assurnasirpal II's standard inscription; then themes dedicated to collections at Emory University (cuneiform messengers in space!), at the Free Library of Philadelphia and the Princeton Theological Seminary where we are currently working, the Ashmolean, the Louvre, the Vorderasiatisches Museum, and more. A special CDLI webpage is dedicated to the app, with our request for contributions, and directions on how to go about preparing and submitting your own files for future viewing in iPad. We particularly hope that curators of existing cuneiform collections will view "cdli tablet" as an opportunity to highlight artifacts in their care, and we will make every effort to assist them in preparing pages and themes for the app. But Assyriologists and Near Eastern archaeologists too can take advantage of this medium to offer an informal narrative of their past publications, or future plans.

cdli tablet is a free educational app available at the iTunes Store for download to iPads running on IOS 6 (search for "cdli").

Jesus Histórico: Revista deEstudios sobre o Jesus Histórico e sua Recepção
ISSN: 1983-4810
 
  A revista Jesus Histórico dedica-se a publicar artigos, resenhas e entrevistas com especialistas renomados e jovens pesquisadores. O interesse editorial está associado a todo o enfoque ligado às recentes pesquisas sobre o Jesus Histórico e Cristianismos Originários. Assim, por exemplo, a revista se interessa em receber trabalhos relacionados tanto ao contexto judaico do século I EC, quanto às múltiplas e variadas manifestações culturais e artísticas desde o século I até os dias atuais que tenham como foco Jesus de Nazaré e a sua recepção (cristianismos e história das religiões em geral). Trata-se, portanto, de um projeto editorial transdisciplinar, acadêmico e laico, interessado em congregar profissionais das mais diferentes áreas acadêmicas que pesquisem o tema Jesus Histórico.

Rock Art Studies: A Bibliographic Database

Rock Art Studies: A Bibliographic Database
http://bancroft.berkeley.edu/images/rockart.gif 
Rock Art Studies: A Bibliographic Database is a compilation in progress which was begun in March, 1993. Currently the database contains over 27,000 citations to the world's rock art literature, with an emphasis on English language and North American citations. Over 9500 of these citations are held in the compiler's personal library. These and many others were reviewed for annotation. With the "r11" release, the database became available on the Internet as a project of the Bay Area Rock Art Research Association Archive, Bancroft Library, University of California, Berkeley (http://bancroft.berkeley.edu/collections/rockart.html).

A few comments regarding the background and objectives of the Compiler, and the assembly of the raw data for inclusion in the database are in order. Leigh Marymor, is a Plumbing Contractor from Berkeley, California who holds a bachelor's degree in Community Education from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. He has been interested in rock art conservation and the literature of rock art studies for over thirty-five years. He served as President of the American Rock Art Research Association (2004-2006), is a co-founder of the Bay Area Rock Art Research Association and has been its Co-chairperson since its inception in 1983. Leigh Marymor received the American Rock Art Research Association's Castleton Award for research excellence in 2002 in recognition of the significance of the compilation of Rock Art Studies: A Bibliographic Database.
The Rock Art Studies database was initially conceived as a tool useful in cataloging the rock art literature held in the Compiler's personal library, which currently consists of approximately 100 shelf feet of books, periodicals, grey literature, ephemera and research notes. As the project grew, additional citations were included from over one hundred additional sources, including: bibliographies, research archives, library catalogues, on-line search services and other private holdings (these sources are notated in the "library" field of the database, and are detailed in the text document, Key to Sources for Citations).
The scope of the data included in the database has been limited by the time and energy available to the Compiler, as well as, by his subjective approach to keyword notations (found in the Keywords field). The past emphasis in the database on English language literature has steadily given way to the growing inclusion of the French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese literature.

Journal of the Classical Association of Canada
Mouseion aims to be a distinctively comprehensive Canadian journal of Classical Studies, publishing articles and reviews in both French and English. One issue annually is normally devoted to archaeological topics, including field reports, finds analysis, and the history of art in antiquity. The other two issues welcome work in all areas of interest to scholars; this includes both traditional and innovative research in philology, history, philosophy, pedagogy, and reception studies, as well as original work in and translations into Greek and Latin.

Mouseion se présente comme un périodique canadien d'études classiques polyvalent, publiant des articles et comptes rendus en français et en anglais.
 
Un fascicule par année est normalement dédié à des sujets archéologiques, incluant des rapports préliminaires de fouilles, des études de matériel et des études d'histoire de l'art antique. Les deux autres fascicules présentent des études dans tous les domaines d'intérêt pour les chercheurs, ce qui inclut à la fois les recherches traditionnelles ou novatrices en philologie, en histoire, en philosophie et en pédagogie ou relatives à l'influence des études classiques en dehors du monde universitaire; Mouseion publie également des travaux originaux rédigés ou traduits en latin ou en grec ancien.

The Beginnings of Empire, 168-27 BC
http://d36jn9qou1tztq.cloudfront.net/static_site/fac/arts/classics/research/dept_projects/beginningsofempire/banner.jpg.761215839307
The project
Work on provincial coins in the Roman Empire has demonstrated their potential to be used as a source to understand local culture as well as perceptions of the emperor and Roman power. The provincial coinage of the Republican period, however, has received little attention. By examining the iconography of coins struck by Roman officials and cities outside Rome in the period 168-27 BC, this project seeks to uncover how Roman power was represented, negotiated or rejected before the creation of the principate.

The database
Another major aim of the project is to broaden access to and understanding of this material in disciplines other than numismatics. Consequently, the raw data generated by the project is being made available online for free public use. Users should note that the database only provides an overview of the iconography being struck in regions under Roman control; it does not list every variation and subtype. For these, users are recommended to consult the publications listed in the bibliography.

This is an ongoing project. At the moment, the database has good coverage of Italy, Africa, Macedonia, and the coins struck by Roman moneyers outside Rome as listed in Crawford’s Roman Republican Coinage. We plan to work on Achaea, Crete and Cyrenaica over the summer.

Archäologische Informationen
ISSN: 0341-2873
http://archiv.ub.uni-heidelberg.de/ojs/public/journals/66/pageHeaderTitleImage_de_DE.jpg
Die Archäologischen Informationen (Arch. Inf.) sind die 1972 gegründete fachwissenschaftliche Zeitschrift der DGUF (seit 1990 mit ISSN: 0341-2873). Mit einer Druckauflage von ca. 1.000 Exemplaren ist sie weltweit verbreitet.

Peer Review, online und Open Access
Mit dem Jahrgang 2012 sind die Arch. Inf. vom üblichen Board Review zusätzlich zum Peer Review übergegangen (mehr dazu hier). Mit dem Jahrgang 2013 erscheint die Zeitschrift zusätzlich zum Druck in einer Online-Ausgabe. Die Online-Ausgabe steht im Open Access, in ihr werden die angenommenen Beiträge nach dem Motto „online first“ publiziert (näheres dazu hier).

Die Online-Ausgabe wird sukzessive via Retrodigitalisierung auch die zurückliegenden Jahrgänge der Archäologischen Informationen erschliessen. Dazu bedarf es der Zustimmung der jeweiligen Autoren. Fehlen in einem bereits online stehenden älteren Jahrgang einzelne Beiträge, liegt diese Zustimmung (noch) nicht vor; diese Beiträge sind wie gewohnt verfügbar: in der gedruckten Ausgabe.

Die Archäologischen Informationen sind andersSchöne Funde in aufwändigen Farbabbildungen und grundlegende Materialvorlagen sind die Aufgabe anderer Fachzeitschriften. Die Archäologischen Informationen stehen für übergreifende historische Auswertungen, für Forschungsbilanzen, für interdisziplinäre Themen und für die Bereicherung von Theorie und Methoden des Faches. Das inhaltliche Profil der Zeitschrift ist an den zurückliegenden Jahrgängen erkennbar und wird in dem Text "Das Profil der Archäologischen Informationen" näher beschrieben. Aufsätze, die zur Diskussion und zur weiteren wissenschaftlichen Entwicklung des Faches auch in Richtung auf die politischen und gesellschaftlichen Ziele der DGUF beitragen, werden besonders gerne angenommen.

Der Themenschwerpunkt
Der erste Teil jedes gedruckten Heftes der Archäologischen Informationen ist einem Themenschwerpunkt gewidmet. Das der Jahrestagung der DGUF folgende Heft hat das Thema dieser Tagung zum Inhalt und ist bemüht, möglichste viele der Vorträge in erweiterter Form als wissenschaftliche Aufsätze zu publizieren. Dem Thementeil folgen - unabhängig davon - weitere Aufsätze und Berichte zu aktuellen Forschungen. Ein Nachrichtenteil informiert über Tagungen und Arbeitsgemeinschaften.

Das Forum
Ein in der Publikationslandschaft der deutschen Archäologie ungewöhnliches Element der Archäologischen Informationen ist das "Forum", in dem in mehreren aufeinander bezogenen Aufsätzen - wie in Rede und Gegenrede - Themen öffentlich diskutiert werden. Ein Aufsatz eröffnet die Diskussion. Von der Schriftleitung angefragte Autoren und der Redaktion anderweitig zugegangene Texte antworten darauf. Häufig erhält der Autor des Startaufsatzes die Gelegenheit, die Diskussion aus seiner Sicht zu bilanzieren. Themen, die im Fach wissenschaftlich oder gesellschaftlich aktuell strittig sind, können so öffentlich ausgetragen und unterschiedliche Positionen miteinander abgewogen werden.

Die Rubrik "Dissertationen und Magisterarbeiten"
Ein besonderes Angebot der Archäologischen Informationen an den wissenschaftlichen Nachwuchs ist die Rubrik "Dissertationen und Magisterarbeiten". Wir laden junge Kolleginnen und Kollegen ein, die Zusammenfassung ihrer Forschungsergebnisse kostenfrei einem breiten Leserkreis vorzustellen. Die Leser gewinnen in dieser Rubrik einen Einblick in die aktuellen Forschungen an den Universitäten, meist lange bevor abschließende Publikationen vorliegen, und können ggf. die Autoren direkt kontaktieren.

Unsere Leser, unsere Autoren
Das "Forum", die Rubrik "Dissertationen und Magisterarbeiten" sowie der Nachrichtenteil sind – das wissen wir aus Rückmeldungen – gerade bei unseren im Ausland lebenden Lesern besonders beliebt, die hier kompakt mitverfolgen können, was jenseits neuer Grabungen und Funde in der deutschen Archäologie passiert und diskutiert wird.

0
Digital technologies are driving important changes in archaeology.  Despite the increasing acceptance of digital technology in daily life, however, determining how to assess digital scholarship has proved difficult: many universities remain unsure about how to evaluate digital work along side more traditional forms of print publication when faced with tenure and promotion decisions.  Recognizing the value of digital scholarship, and aiming to encourage its practice, the AIA offers this award to honor projects, groups, and individuals that deploy digital technology in innovative ways in the realms of excavation, research, teaching, publishing, or outreach.
Criteria for Selection 
Nominations of projects and individuals are welcome. Nominations may be made by anyone, including the project director or the principal members of the team responsible for the digital creation. Nominations of collaborative projects are encouraged. At least one member of the leadership team, or any individual nominee, must be a member in good standing of the AIA. Please submit the AIA membership number(s) with the nomination.

Due Date for NominationSeptember 15, 2013
Materials to Be Submitted
Additional Information
Because the field of digital archaeology is still nascent and the application of digital technologies to archaeology is in constant flux, the committee reserves the right to modify this award as the field evolves.  Furthermore, the committee also reserves the right not give the award if no deserving project is nominated. 
Questions about the award should be directed to Deanna Baker, Membership and Societies Administrator, at awards@aia.bu.edu or 617-353-9361.

Open Anthropology
http://www.aaaopenanthro.org/img/openbookgrayscal.png

Open Anthropology, the first digital-only, public journal of the American Anthropological Association (AAA), is a pilot experiment envisioned as a way of “opening up” anthropology in several ways. First, the new online publication helps bring anthropology into the public conversation about critical social issues and policy debates. Each edition of Open Anthropology will focus on a timely theme, offering a selection of articles relevant to contemporary concerns. By means of Open Anthropology, we hope anthropological knowledge, information and insights will figure more prominently in public discussions. Second, the journal introduces nearly the full archive of AAA journals, past and current-the online “stacks,” so to speak-to potential readers who may not even know these exist. Content in Open Anthropology will be culled from the full archive of participating AAA publications, and curated into editions. Third, each edition of Open Anthropology is made available free on the public Internet for a minimum of six months permitting any user to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search or link to the full text of the articles in each edition. Content published 35 years ago and longer will remain free on the public Internet in perpetuity; book reviews in Open Anthropology will also remain available on the Internet without cost to readers. Finally, by means of “The Editor’s Note,” anthropology is opened up to the non-specialist reader by drawing attention to key issues or themes raised in the selected articles (some of which are written in highly technical language), and by identifying each article source-across time and subspecialties of the field-the author, the specialty journal, and the journal’s sponsoring section.

Campbell Bonner Magical Gems Database Newsletter
By the end of 2012, with over nine-hundred gems present and more than thirty collections represented in the database, a fourth of the known corpus of magical gems has become accessible, while we are presently working on the upload of a similar amount. As the integration of new material naturally necessitates changes, having got this far, we have started to reconsider certain features of the database, to review what has been achieved until now and launch improvements in order to create not simply a corpus of magical gems, but also a research tool.  Our research on magical gems worldwide has been made possible by the ongoing support of Vacheron Constantin, Geneva. A standard grant of the International Visegrad Fund has allowed us to concentrate on ’Magical Gems in the Visegrad Countries’.
