(Received 6 February 2002 / Accepted 28 June 2002 )

We present low-resolution spectroscopy of the majority of the stars in the field of NGC 1893 which were classified as non-members based on the photometry of Marco et al. (2001). We separate field stars from pre-main-sequence members based on a combination of spectral type and photometric indices which allows us to determine the reddening to the objects. For candidates to pre-main-sequence objects, we present intermediate-resolution spectra. We confirm 3 F-type emission-line objects as massive T Tauri stars in NGC 1893 and find two good candidates for being absorption-line Herbig A stars. A B5 star is a very good candidate for an absorption-line Herbig B star. We also investigate the nature of emission-line B-type stars close to the cluster centre. Available evidence suggests that both classical Be stars and Herbig Be stars are present in NGC 1893 .

Key words: open clusters and associations: individual: NGC 1893 -- stars: pre-main sequence -- stars: emission line, Be -- stars: early-type

What is OpenURL?

The OpenURL standard is a protocol for transmission of metadata describing the resource that you wish to access.

An OpenURL link contains article metadata and directs it to the OpenURL server of your choice. The OpenURL server can provide access to the resource and also offer complementary services (specific search engine, export of references...). The OpenURL link can be generated by different means.

  • If your librarian has set up your subscription with an OpenURL resolver, OpenURL links appear automatically on the abstract pages.
  • You can define your own OpenURL resolver with your EDPS Account.
    In this case your choice will be given priority over that of your library.
  • You can use an add-on for your browser (Firefox or I.E.) to display OpenURL links on a page (see http://www.openly.com/openurlref/). You should disable this module if you wish to use the OpenURL server that you or your library have defined.
