Open Access Journal: Journal of the Hellenic Institute of Egyptology

ISSN: 2241-0597

The Journal of the Hellenic Institute of Egyptology (JHIE) is jointly co–published annually, in one fascicle, by the Hellenic Institute of Egyptology (Athens, Greece), by the Ar­chaeological Society of Alexandria (Alexandria, Egypt) and the cAin Shams University (Cairo, Egypt). The aim of JHIE, based on the principles of Humanism and the desire for International Synergies and collaboration between colleagues of different nationalities that characterize both the Institute and the Socie­ty, is to provide a modern scientific forum for the discussion of a plethora of aspects, no­tions and facets from various domains of Egyptology, Archaeology and Archaeoastrono­my, with emphasis on the religion, funerary texts, language and scripts, Epigraphy, Papy­rology, Sciences (Astronomy, Mathematics, Botany, Architec­ture, & c.) of ancient Egypt, as well as Helleno–Roman Archaeology related to Egypt; furthermore, Coptology is also re­presen­ted. Interdisciplinarity and the harmonious interference between various scholarly fields and disciplines are highly desirable, as is also a general emphasis on the col­la­bora­tion of countries all over the Mediterranean Basin, encompassing studies of indivi­dual civi­lizations (in particular those related to ancient Egypt and Hellas), as well as common ele­ments, contacts and interactions among them. Our journal is kindly publi­shed, hand­led and distributed by Serapis Editions, Athens, Greece. All payments are due to Serapis Edi­tions, and not to the Institute neither to the Society.

JHIE is based on the highest standards and accepts after peer–reviewing original papers from all aut­hors, without any discrimination between nationality, religion, gender or sexu­al orienta­tion. We publish the work of international scholars, while also providing a virtu­al forum for the finest Hellenic and Egyptian scholarship; thus, we welcome original arti­cles dealing with the aforementioned thematologies. Articles discussing different cultu­res will be conside­red for publication if they are clearly relevant to the ancient Mediterra­nean World (specifically to Egypt and Hellas), also including ancient Israel, Assyria, Persia, Me­sopotamia, the Hittites, North Africa, & c. Information about new egyptological, ar­chaeolo­gical and archaeoastronomical discoveries and current scholarly events is also welcome. Publishers are highly encouraged to send review copies of their books in the relevant fields (please see below).

JHIE is a double blind peer–reviewed journal. Articles must not have been published in, or submitted to, another publication at the time of submission and must be original. All sub­mitted papers are firstly very carefully read by at least two Editors of JHIE, who will give a feedback to the author(s). Articles (excluding book reviews or research reports) are after­wards reviewed anonymously by at least two referees in their 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, its originality and the research conducted therein only. In cases where the reviewers recommend changes in the manuscript, authors are requested to re­vise their articles. In the rare case of unreasonable claims by a reviewer, the Executive Edi­tors in Chief deserve the right to agree with the author not to accept these claims. The final approval of articles lies at the two Executive Editors and 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 two Exe­cutive Editors in Chief and/or (if necessary) another Member of the Editorial Board) shall pursue the case and should the situation of taking action arise, shall notify the respective party. The List of the Editorial Board can be found printed in the journal and also at its of­ficial web–site. We collaborate with more Colleagues worldwide for specific themes and is­sues. Finally, in order to make the double blind peer–review process transparent and com­prehensible, we shall also publish occasionally in our web–page the names of referees. All the aut­hors whose papers have been accepted are obliged to follow carefully and precisely all our Editorial Guidelines, otherwise their papers will not be pub­lished. The preferred langu­ages for publication are English and French.
