Open Access Journal: New Classicists

 [First posted in AWOL 20 Gnuary 2019, updated 22 February 2024]

New Classicists

New Classicists 01
New Classicists is an online periodical aimed at providing a publication platform for postgraduate students in any field that relates to the Classical World.  Our advisory board members aid in sourcing international academics for the two person, blind peer reviewing of each accepted article before publication.
To begin with, there will be two publications a year, February and September, starting in February 2019.  Thanks to generous funding from the Classics department at King's College London, the journal will now be an open access publication.
If you are a postgraduate student of any recognised institution, or are within two years of completing a degree, and you would like to have an article peer reviewed and published, please submit a finished draft of up to 5000 words, along with a short abstract.  Articles can be submitted at any time during the year, but the peer reviewing process can take up to three months so bear this in mind if you want your article included in a particular edition.  Please use the Harvard referencing style for modern sources and the Oxford style for ancient sources, with footnotes, if required, at the bottom of each page.  For more information, please see this referencing guide.

Each article will be assessed for suitability and an outcome will be forwarded to you within two weeks of this date.
We are also looking for book reviews of recent Classical books.  Please contact the editor for more information if you would like to submit a book review.
In the meantime, please follow us on our social media sites and spread the word to your fellow postgrad students and friends!
