About the Journal
Chronolog orginates with the idea of four students at CCRS who believed that the students at the institute should have the possibility to publish their very first scientific article in a journal which were geared for students. The institute, CCRS, teaches the history, culture and archaeology of the ancient Southwest Asia and Northeast Africa and this became the focus area for the journal.
From the start, the journal has focused on students from CCRS, but also wanted an international approach. Hence, students and recently graduates (max 5 years) who have a close working relationship with UCPH, such as exchange students, students participating in the Berlin-Copenhagen Seminar or presenting at the Egyptological Assyriological Conference in Copenhagen (EACC, formerly EEC) are also encouraged to submit their articles to Chronolog.
To support students at CCRS wanting to write their first article, workshops in how to do exactly that are organised every year. Other workshops on e.g. how to do a scientific poster, or how to apply for funding for a research stay have also been planned.
The editor group are students or recent graduates of CCRS, which changes regularly, and the editor-in-chief is an associate professor at CCRS. A senior advisory board consisting of a number of the associate professors and professors of CCRS is a sounding board for scientific ideas while a student advisory board consisting of current students make sure Chronolog is always focussed on the need of the students.
The first issue of Chronolog was planned for end of 2022, but will be fully published in February 2023. It is planned for an annual issue, but with the possibility to publish an extra issue e.g. in connection with larger conferences within the area taking place in Copenhagen.
Chronolog is an open source journal and all authors are free to link to their articles or republish these on e.g. academia.edu from the day the issue is published.
The activities of the journal is sponsored by UCHP and Danish Institute in Damascus.
