I'm looking for a specific topic.
Use the website search. You find the symbol for the website search at the top of each page, or a link in the bottom line of each page. There is a help link on the search page, which gives you the directions for use.

There are two different arrow symbols on some pages. What is their function?
This arrow takes you to the top of the page, generally to the table of contents.
This arrow takes you back to the last page you visited.

I have a question concerning this website, which is not answered in the FaQs.
If it’s a technical issue, please send an e-mail to the webmaster. If it relates to the content of the page, please send an e-mail to the editor.

I am having difficulties with reading the texts, the type size seems to be too small for my monitor.
Most of the browsers allow you to enlarge the text size, e.g. Internet Explorer: click on "view" on the menu, select "text size" and then select "larger".

The sub-menu appears in the wrong place, so I can't use it.
This can happen when you have changed the size of your browser window. Just start again from the HOME  page.



Bulletin of the SEAA



How can I publish a report (review etc.) in the Bulletin?
Just send it by e-mail to the editor. You will find the instructions for authors on the contributions page.

What are the pros publishing my report (review etc.) on the SEAA-web?
The Bulletin of the SEAA is dedicated not to full length academic essays, but to smaller contributions of various types, which may not be placed meaningfully in peer-reviewed academic journal, but are welcome here.
This section offers space for field reports, research project outlines, book reviews, museum roundups, site descriptions, reflections on various issues in East Asian archaeology, or whatever you feel is worth sharing with your colleagues and the interested public.
This section offers a means of publication also for the upcoming generation of academics.
Your contribution is published within a relatively short time span, and it will therefore quickly reach an interested and competent audience.
Your contribution is definitely placed in a location dedicated to East Asian archaeology. You're reaching your audience!
The Bulletin of the SEAA will have its own ISSN number. Your report (review etc.) appears in an internationally acknowledged periodical.
At the end of each year there will be a PDF-file including all Reports and Reviews with pagination to download.

What's the Forum for?
You can post questions concerning East Asian archaeology you want to discuss with (other) experts in the field, or just share your opinion about the features of the website. You can keep in contact with your colleagues, or get into contact with some new people. You can post urgent announcements, ask for addresses or contact numbers, discuss SEAA, and so forth. The Forum is for your direct use. You don't have to send e-mails to the editor.

The Forum doesn't show in the menu.
The Forum only shows when you are logged in in the Members' Area. Start from one of the pages of the Members' Area and click again on the menu, then it shows.

How can I use the Forum?
Start a new thread by using the "new contribution" form on the top page of the Forum, or contribute to one of the existing threads by using the "your reply" form, which opens together with the text message you picked out for reading. Like with many e-mail programs, the text of the message your replying to appears in the message box. You can delete it, if you like.
When starting a new thread make sure that you choose a distinctive and descriptive topic for the subject line. Otherwise it will get difficult for users finding the discussions they are interested in. 

What is the Codecheck for?
The Codecheck appears after you click on "submit" (or "absenden"). The Codecheck prevents robots from submitting spams (advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations etc.) to this Forum. Robots cannot react to the Codecheck; you can! Try to make out the four letters/numbers (captcha) and type them into the Code line and press the return key. If you make a mistake, don't worry, just try again with the next code. After you have filled in the Code correctly, your mail will be submitted.

The message I submitted doesn't show.
Please reload the Forum page (use the 'reload' button of your browser) and your message shows.

Why do German terms appear during the mail submitting process?
For the time being webmaster and editor are located in Germany, the webspace provider as well. The provider was chosen for his good terms, which meet the requirements of the website project in many ways. Unfortunately, the Forum feature does in certain parts resist the language preferences of the webmaster. We are working on that. The frames of the Forum's reply pages will be regularly transfered into English. If these problems prove to be consistent, we may consider moving the web to a different provider. Until then, relax!

What if I make a mistake in my post, I am not happy with?
Send an e-mail to the webmaster and your post will be deleted as quickly as possible.
