    Aims and Scope

    The Journal of Ancient History aims to provide a forum for scholarship covering all aspects of ancient history and culture from the Archaic Period to Late Antiquity (roughly the ninth century BCE through the eighth century CE). The journal publishes peer-reviewed articles concerning the history and historiography (ancient and modern) of the ancient Mediterranean world and of neighboring civilizations in their relations with it. The journal is open to submissions in disciplines closely related to ancient history, including epigraphy, numismatics, religion and law. The journal does not currently publish book reviews.

    Submission process

    Instructions for Authors / Guidelines for Submissions
    JAH aims to publish articles, of varying lengths, that make a fresh and significant contribution to the study of the ancient Mediterranean world. They should endeavor to be as accessible as possible to scholars specializing in a variety of geographic and chronological areas, and to that end citations in ancient languages should always be translated. The language of publication is English.

    Authors should use ScholarOne Manuscripts for article submission (see link in right-hand menu). There are no formatting guidelines for the initial submission, but, upon the acceptance of their work, authors will be expected to resubmit their accepted submission in conformity with the journal’s formatting style. Further instructions may be issued to authors regarding what is required for the final version.

    Editorial Policy
    An Editorial Board processes all submissions for the JAH. The Editor circulates submissions at his/her discretion to the Editorial Board. The Editorial Board members submit their opinion on publication to the Editor as well as that of a second reader (a “referee”) chosen by the Board member or the Editor. From there, the Editor makes a final verdict about publication (usually: “accept,” “reject,” “accept with revision,” “revise and resubmit”). Detailed comments are normally sent only to authors of accepted submissions, or of submissions thought suitable for resubmission. JAH and De Gruyter are committed to a speedy process, from submission to final publication.

    Once accepted and prepared for publication, articles will appear on the journal’s website for immediate access and reference. Articles in the journal will thereafter appear in print form in one of two yearly issues.
