    EULIMENE is an academic periodical, which contains Studies in Classical
    Archaeology, Epigraphy, Numismatics, and Papyrology, with particular
    interest in the Greek and Roman Mediterranean world. The time span covered
    by EULIMENE runs from the Late Minoan/Sub Minoan/ Mycenean period (12th/11th
    cent. BC) through to the late Antiquity (5th/6th cent. AD.).
    EULIMENE will also welcome studies on anthropology, maritime and underwater
    archaeology, palaiodemography, palaio-environmental, botanical and faunal
    archaeology, the ancient economy and the history of science, so long as they
    conform to the geographical and chronological boundaries noted. Broader
    studies on Classics or Ancient History will be welcome, though they should
    be strictly linked with one or more of the areas mentioned above.

                        _Multi-Dimensional Indexing_

         I am greatly interested in learning about Any and All e-journals or
    e-books that have implemented 'Multi-Dimensioning Indexing' or 'Concept
    Maps' to access the publication content.

        'Multi-Dimensional Indexing' and Concept Maps are well-described and
    illustrated in an excellent recent article by Jan Ross entitled "A New Way
    of Information Retrieval: 3-D Indexing and Concept Mapping" in _Learned
    Publishing_ (2000) 13, 119-123

         An example of a 'Multi-Dimensional Index' given by Ross of a
    'Multi-Dimensional Index' is that being developed for the forthcoming
    Web-based _Encyclopedia of Life Sciences_ [ http://www.els.net/ ]

         As Always, Any and All contributions, suggestions, comments, critiques,
    cosmic insights, etc., etc., etc. are Most Welcome.

             Subject: Oxford dictionary for research community

    CL Research has been designated an agent for Oxford University Press to
    license the New Oxford Dictionary of English (NODE) to the academic and
    commercial research communities. This dictionary has been praised as a
    "major achievement" in lexicography; in its machine-readable form,
    considerable additional information is available. CL Research has also
    created a machine-tractable version of NODE in its dictionary creation
    and maintenance software (DIMAP) and then parsed the definitions to add
    semantic links between entries (particularly hypernyms, but also
    including "typical subject" for verbs). Details, including the license
    agreement, are available at http://www.clres.com/oup-clr.html.

    The licensing fees for a two-year period are:

                    Academic Commercial
                    -------- ----------
    NODE $1,500 $7,500
    NODE+DIMAP $2,000 $10,000

    Other Oxford products (thesaurus, bilingual dictionaries, inflection
    lists) are also available. Commercial exploitation agreements will be
    developed separately.
