Oqimta centers on the classical rabbinic corpus (Tannaitic and Amoraic literature), but we also welcome contributions on other aspects of late ancient Jewish culture and history (e.g., piyyut, magical texts, art, inscriptions), as well as on the reception of rabbinic literature in the medieval and modern periods. We are committed to the highest academic standards, and at the same time we believe that the field can be studied productively with a variety of perspectives and methods – philological or historical; employing literary theory, anthropology, or intellectual frameworks through which the field has not yet been explored; focusing on rabbinic texts themselves or working across the different traditions and cultures of antiquity.Oqimta: Studies in Talmudic and Rabbinic Literature is a free, open-access, peer-review journal that has been running since 2009. I noted its inception here and have also mentioned it here and here. Cross-file under Talmud Watch.
