BAF-Online known as BAF-O (ISSN: 2504-2076) is the publication platform of the Berner Altorientalisches Forum (BAF). It makes available to the public within the shortest possible delays vidcasts of the talks that have been held at the BAF. The vidcasts published at BAF Online have been peer-reviewed by members of the BAF scientific committee and are quotable.
The aim of BAF-O is to facilitate the dissemination and publication of ideas prior to final results. In order to facilitate communication across subjects and disciplines the BAF has adopted an epistemological approach. This means that the talks are organised into panels based on some of the greater conceptual or methodological issues they touch upon.
BAF-Online provides immediate open access to its content in accordance with the BOAI definition of open access on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
