Active Open-Access Venues in Ancient World Studies

For my purposes, a journal is open-access if and only if it is free to write in and free (or negligibly expensive) for anyone with an Internet connection to read. Journals which charge $1000 or more for the privilege of hosting a PDF edited by the author and unpaid volunteers are not open access by this definition. A venue is active if and only if it still accepts new publications. Many out-of-print monographs and back issues of journals have been made open access, but this does not help when you are looking for a place to publish your new research as opposed to trying to obtain old research.

For books, I also consider publishers which charge a fee in the low thousands and make the PDF but not the print version free to read.
