Bulletin of the American Schools of Oriental Research
The Bulletin of the American Schools of Oriental Research (BASOR) is a leader among peer-reviewed academic journals of the ancient Near East. For nearly a century, since 1919 when William F. Albright originally founded it as the Bulletin of the American School of Oriental Research in Jerusalem, BASOR has served as a highly respected interdisciplinary English-language forum for scholars worldwide in subject areas such as archaeology, art, anthropology, archaeometry, bioarchaeology and archaeozoology, biblical studies, history, literature, philology, geography, and epigraphy. Published by the American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR), the journal contains articles written by leading scholars and acknowledged experts in the ancient world which cover a geographical region from Israel and Canaan to ancient Anatolia, Mesopotamia, Cyprus, and Egypt and a chronological range from the Paleolithic period through Islamic times.
The journal appears bi-annually, in May and November. Submissions of particular interest include cutting edge original research, preliminary reports of new and ongoing archaeological excavations, theoretical and innovative approaches to the ancient world, reviews of current scholarship in the field, and commentaries on the latest books. Suggestions are also welcomed for occasional theme issues relating to topics of broad scholarly interest.
