The ancient site of Corinth dominates the land corridor between central Greece and the Peloponnese and was occupied continuously from at least the 10th century B.C. Corinthians profited from their geographical position to take a leading part in Greek trade and colonization in the West, and the site later became the capital of Roman Greece. Excavations by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens began in 1896 and still continue. The first volume publishing the results of these investigations appeared in 1932, and further parts appear irregularly as scholars finish their assigned topics. Each volume is peer-reviewed, edited, and produced to the highest standards.
As part of an initiative to make all of its publications available online either directly or through partnership agreements, the ASCSA Publications Office has collaborated with JSTOR, the electronic archive, to digitize all volumes in the series “Corinth: Results of Excavations Conducted by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens” (ISSN 1558-7185). Several new volumes have recently been produced, and others are in the pipeline. To ensure that the publishing program remains financially sustainable, the JSTOR collection of Corinth volumes does not include the most recent three years of scholarship published in the series.
Access to the Corinth volumes in JSTOR is available (for subscribers to the relevant JSTOR collections) here.
A list of all volumes published in the Corinth series is available here.
Digitizing the Corinth series posed some special problems to JSTOR. Volume V, a publication of a Roman villa discovered at the site, is massively oversized and, at times of scanning, the elephantine folio was the largest publication JSTOR has had to deal with.
The availability of the Corinth series on JSTOR also offers an exciting opportunity for scholars to “search across” the two main sites excavated by the ASCSA over the last century. The final reports of excavations at the Athenian Agora, where American excavations started in 1931, have been on JSTOR since last year. Other publications related to the two sites can also be found in the pages of Hesperia and Hesperia Supplements, also available on JSTOR.
A complete list of all ASCSA publications available on JSTOR is available. Individual subscriptions to Hesperia include access to these publications at no additional charge through an Individual Access arrangement between JSTOR and ASCSA. To buy an individual subscription to Hesperia, click here.
