Search SAA Publications by Previous Publication

Search string (perl regexp)


This form will search the database for previous publications of texts published in SAA volumes and return the volume and text number of any previous publication that matches the search string. If the returned reference is followed by a "+" this means that the piece has been joined. To find the other members of the join, search for the SAA volume and text number (caution: some joined pieces may not have been published previously and may therefore not be found by the search; to make sure, search for the SAA volume and text number (caution: some joined pieces may not have been published previously and may therefore not be found by the search; to make sure, search for the SAA volume and text number in the museum numbers database). Alternatively, one can search for an SAA volume and text number and the form will return the previous publication of the text. All searches are case insensitive.

Leading Zeroes

Most publication references in the database have leading zeroes in variable numbers to permit the file to be sorted properly. For example, all ADD (Assyrian Deeds and Documents) numbers have four digits and ADD 21 will be represented in the database as ADD 0021. If you are not sure of the number of leading zeroes, prefix 0* to any variable number. You can save yourself trouble if you use the proper number of leading zeroes as a search for ADD 0*21 will return all ADD 21x as well as ADD 0021. Your first search will show how many leading zeroes various publication references have.

Abbreviations

Until I have a chance to build a list of abbreviations, you will have to figure out the abbreviations used in the database by trial and error. The abbreviations correspond to those used in the SAA volumes.

Periods

Most publication references used in the database do not have periods (full stops) in them so do not use them in searches. Remember that a period is a metacharacter in regular expressions so if you do have to use a period put a backslant (\) in front of it. To see the few sigla that have periods in them, search for “\.”.

Additions and Corrections

As the information available here may have errors, additions and corrections are welcomed and can be made with the form available here or on the page with the search results.
