Cuneiform Digital Library Journal

The Cuneiform Digital Library Journal is an electronic journal constituted in conjunction with the organization and work of the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative to afford contributors to that effort the opportunity to make known to an international community the results of their research into topics related to those of the CDLI.

The CDLJ is a refereed e-journal for Assyriology. We are interested in publishing a broad and international range of cuneiform research articles that will appeal to academic researchers as well as interested members of the public.

Contributions dealing with the major themes of the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative, that is, with text analyses of 4th and 3rd millennium documents (incorporating text, photographs, data, drawings, interpretations), early language, writing, paleography, administrative history, mathematics, metrology, and the technology of modern cuneiform editing are welcome. Articles in the Cuneiform Digital Library Journal are chosen for their quality academic content and for their use of the electronic medium.

For more information on this journal, visit the CDLJ and CDLB information page.
