Die Publikationsplattform für Nachwuchswissenschaftler
Begründet von Stefan Krmnicek & Peter Probst
The Frankfurter elektronische Rundschau zur Altertumskunde (FeRA) is an open access online journal especially designed for subjects which study the antiquities, and is being published three times a year (April, August and December). Though established by the Frankfurter Institut für Archäologische Wissenschaften and operating via the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität server the journal is not intended to be a mere seminar publication, but explicitly invites qualified young researchers from universities all over the world to present their papers and reviews.
In times of sparse financial resources, especially in classical scholarship, money-saving ways of printing and distributing articles have to be sought. The internet represents a quick and easily accessible alternative.
Additionally, an online journal offers young scholars an adequate platform for presenting the results of their research to a broader academic audience, a chance which is only rarely found.
