The Publications and Research Division currently manages four major projects:
- the American Office of L’Année philologique, the essential bibliographical resource in classics. The online version of L’Année contains data produced by the SCS’s Database of Classical Bibliography project.
- the selection of the postdoctoral fellow that the SCS sends each year, thanks to funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, to the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae in Munich, the world's most detailed lexicographical project on classical Latin.
- the archive of performances of classical works
- the Digital Latin Library Project
The Division also collaborates with other major projects in classics that are not managed by the SCS:
- the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae, the comprehensive database of ancient and Byzantine Greek
- the Ancient World Mapping Center (AWMC), which promotes cartography, historical geography and geographic information science as essential disciplines within the field of ancient studies. The AWMC is carrying on the work begun with the publication of the Barrington Atlas of the Ancient World which was sponsored by the SCS.
The Division’s Committee on Research monitors the resources available to scholars conducting research in classics and encourages the development of new tools when it identifies needs and opportunities.
