Open Access Journal Back List: Journal of Ancient Civilizations

Journal of Ancient Civilizations
ISSN: 1004-9371
The JOURNAL OF ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS (JAC; ISSN: 1004-9371) is published annually in two fascicles by the Institute for the History of Ancient Civilizations.
JAC provides a forum for the discussion of various aspects of the cultural and historical processes in the Ancient Near Eastern and Mediterranean world, encompassing studies of individual civilizations as well as common elements, contacts and interactions among them (in such traditional fields as Assyriology, Classics, Egyptology, Hittitology, and Sinology among others). JAC aims at publishing the work of international scholars while also providing a showcase for the finest Chinese scholarship, and so welcomes articles dealing with history, philology, art, archaeology and linguistics which are intended to illuminate the material culture and society of the ancient Near East, the Mediterranean region, and ancient China. Articles discussing other cultures will be considered for publication only if they are clearly relevant to the ancient Mediterranean world, the Near East and China. Information about new discoveries and current scholarly events is also welcome. Publishers are encouraged to send articles or review copies of books in relevant fields.
Up to now, 33 volumes of JAC have been published (for a content list, click here; former volumes can be downloaded here; licensed access also available via the China Academic Journals Full-text Database of CNKI). From volume 31 (2016) on, JAC publishes double blind peer-reviewed articles, research surveys and reviews. Articles must not have been published in, or submitted to, another publication at the time of submission. All submitted articles are first carefully read by at least two editors of JAC (list of editors), who will give a detailed feedback to the author. Articles (excluding book reviews or research reports) are afterwards reviewed anonymously by at least two referees in the specific field, appointed by the editorial board. The whole peer-review process as well as any judgment is based on the quality of the article and research conducted therein only. In cases where the reviewers recommend changes in the manuscript, authors are requested to revise their articles. The final approval of articles is at the editorial board. Throughout the whole peer-review process, articles are treated confidentially. In case of (alleged or supposed) interest conflict, misconduct or plagiarism of any party involved the editor in chief and/or the chief executive director (or, if necessary, another member of the editorial board) will pursue the case and should the situation of taking action arise, will notify the respective party.
