Web-accessible publications

July 9, 2010

In one of the comments-threads one person lamented the difficulty of “lay” people accessing scholarly publications. Well, here’s one small tip: The University of Edinburgh Research Archive. This is the depository where members of academic staff of the University are encouraged to put a PDF of journal articles, etc. This is a relatively new practice, so the takeup thus far is small. But there are some things there, including a number of my own recent publications.
Here’s the URL:
http://www.era.lib.ed.ac.uk/

On the site, simply type in the search box the name of an author (e.g., “Hurtado”).

  1. You misunderstand Larry, I’m comparing academia.edu with http://www.era.lib.ed.ac.uk/, not with your blog. I’m very happy you’re blogging! And your right, it doesn’t need to be one or the other – but both!

    This is very good. I enjoy reading scholarly work. Lately, I’ve been reading Craig A. Evans (who is supposed to be a respected scholar) and have been enjoying his thoughts on the New Testament, early Christianity, and the Dead Sea Scrolls. At the Acadia Divinity College website he has several PDFs one can download and read, for free. http://www.craigaevans.com/studies.htm

    Thanks for the link! I’ll be sure to check it out. Hopefully, more and more scholars will put their work up, so it can be accessed by people like me.
