Holzhausen Verlag: Open Access Classics Books

Holzhausen, der Verlag: Open Access Books
Open Access steht für freien und kostenlosen Zugang zu wissenschaftlichen Publikationen und Daten im Internet. Ziel ist es einen schnellen Zugriff auf wissenschaftliche Arbeiten, Publikationen und Daten zu schaffen, so dass Interessierte die Volltexte lesen, in ihnen suchen, auf sie verweisen und sie auch sonst auf jede denkbare legale Weise benutzen können, ohne finanzielle, gesetzliche oder technische Barrieren jenseits von denen, die mit dem Internet-Zugang selbst verbunden sind.

Der Verlag Holzhausen bekennt sich zum Gedanken der Maximierung der Verbreitung wissenschaftlicher Information und unterstützt die Open-Access-Politik. Deshalb werden wissenschaftliche Verlagspublikationen möglichst auch digital publiziert und unter Berücksichtigung rechtlicher und wirtschaftlicher Möglichkeiten frei zugänglich gemacht.

Pleiades News: Improving Reference Citations

Improving Reference Citations

Pleiades cites a wide variety of resources, both online and in print. New documentation and tools are making existing references better and easing the process of creating new ones.
One of the biggest challenges faced by new contributors to Pleiades (it's true for seasoned veterans too) is the adding of references to external resources in a manner that is consistent, complete, and that conforms to the expectations of the Editorial College. In recent months, several steps have been taken to improve this situation, including the integration of the Zotero citation management system through a curated Pleiades Zotero Library and the revision of our Editorial Guidelines. Today I'm happy to announce and solicit feedback on some additional steps.

This morning we deployed updates to the "References" portion of the "Add/Edit" form used when making additions and changes to Pleiades resources. Previously, this form offered some guidance for the content of individual fields on the form, but that guidance was incomplete and increasingly out-of-date. Now, every reference-related field provides fuller, more accurate guidance and, where appropriate, links to other explanatory materials. Several of the text fields themselves have also been widened in order better to accommodate average-sized content. Some minor whitespace adjustments have also been made for the sake of readability.

Behind the scenes, we've been developing software to examine existing references for completeness and conformance to editorial expectations. This software, which we've dubbed "PleiadesRefBot" not only adjusts the contents of reference fields, but adds new information as necessary. In particular, since many references in Pleiades predate the move to Zotero, PleiadesRefBot uses the information in the reference to try to make a match with a corresponding Zotero record and then updates the reference in Pleiades accordingly. The bot also checks links to external references as a guard against link rot, and reports "not found" errors and other problems to the human supervising its operation. But please don't be surprised if you come across legacy citations in Pleiades for months to come. We are moving slowly with, and checking behind, the bot in order to prevent mistakes or loss of data.
Meanwhile, the old Citation Guide, which was weighed down by a mass of deprecated examples, has been retired. The new Citation Guide is built in a modular format that lets the editors add examples for individual, frequently cited resources more easily. Software has also been written to help produce these entries, making use of the content in the Pleiades Zotero Library, the Classical Works Knowledge Base, the Perseus Catalog, and the heuristic rules employed by PleiadesRefBot. We hope that this provision will not only accelerate updates to the Citation Guide, but also help ensure consistency between the Guide and the actual references in Pleiades.

Non-contributing users of Pleiades stand to gain greatly from these initiatives as well. As legacy references are upgraded and new ones vetted, the path to accessing a cited work will become shorter. A higher percentage of Pleiades references will be linked directly to their online targets, and references to works still available only in print will make better use of the WorldCat union catalog and other systems to help you find nearby copies.

Further enhancements are planned, including search-as-you-type functionality for citing works already in the Pleiades Zotero Library and clearer guidance for primary sources and their editions. In the interim, critiques and suggestions are welcome via the Pleiades Community Google Group or the Pleiades Gazetteer Issue Tracker on GitHub.

State Archives of Assyria Online

[First posted in AWOL 1 July 2010. Updated 15 December 2017]

State Archives of Assyria Online (SAAo)
A pair of Assyrian scribes filing reports after the conquest of a Babylonian city, Nimrud, 8th century BC (BM ANE 118882)
State Archives of Assyria Online (SAAo) is an open-access web resource that aims to make the rich Neo-Assyrian materials found in the royal archives of Nineveh, and elsewhere, more widely accessible.
Based on an existing ASCII text database created by Simo Parpola and his team at the University of Helsinki, the online transliterations and translations are those of the standard editions in the series "State Archives of Assyria". All of the published volumes are accessible online, in addition to volume 2 of the companion series "State Archives of Assyria Studies", the edition of the Eponym Lists and Chronicles. The web presentation and linguistic annotation are carried out using tools and standards developed by Steve Tinney (University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia)...
Online portals provide context and explanatory materials for SAAo. Hence, the website "Knowledge and Power in the Neo-Assyrian Empire", created by Radner, Eleanor Robson (University of Cambridge) and Tinney with funding from the British Higher Education Academy, is dedicated to the 7th century letters, queries and reports exchanged between kings Esarhaddon and Assurbanipal and their scholarly advisors; the companion corpus is http://oracc.museum.upenn.edu/saao/knpp/corpus/. Another such portal, "Assyrian Empire Builders" is devoted to the 8th century political correspondence as part of the UCL research project, with a companion corpus at Assyrian Empire Builders. Further portals are planned.
