„[...] In my experience, both as an author and editor, I’ve found in DG staff support and assistance during all the phases of publishing. At some point I’ve found myself surprised by the great care they invested in all the details. [...] I strongly believe that to find a very good publisher, one who’s willing to take great care of your academic work, is something rare. I’m happy to have found it in DG.“
Prof. Dr. Gabriele Cornelli, Archai UNESCO Chair / University of Brasília, President of the International Plato Society
