Undena Publications

Online titles

     Undena has pioneered the electronic approach to publishing.
     The first issue was the Terqa Data Base, which appeared in 1987 as a floppy disk. Several other CDs have appeared in the meantime for other titles, paralleling the paper edition.
     The first titles to appear online, in 2000, were BiMes 20 and SMS 5/1, through the Urkesh website.
     We are now in the process of updating our online catalog to include first all titles that are out of print, then going back progressively to in clude all titles in our catalog.

     Through a special project of the International Academy of Archaeology, we are publishing titles in a dual edition, online and on paper.
     The paper edition is is sold at the nominal price of $15 to cover only distribution costs.
     The online edition is available immediately free of charge on this website.
     These titles are marked on this page in red as belonging to the IAA dual edition series.

     The current policy for other titles is to publish the online edition within a year of the original paper publication.
     The following four titles are also available in the Archive of Mesopotamian Site Reports of SUNY Stony Brook (AMAR), under the direction of Prof. Elizabeth Stone: BiMes 10; BiMes 13; BiMes 20; BiMes 22.

     The following Undena titles are currently available online in PDF format:
