Author Guidelines

Texts submitted should:

  • Contain, after the title, some (no more than 5) key words allowing electronic classification and search
  • Be followed by an analytical bibliography based on any standard system of bibliographical references (e.g. Burkert, W., Homo Necans. Interpretazionen altgriechischer Opferriten und Mythen, Berlin-New York 1972). In the text and in the foot notes, bibliographical references should be notified by simply mentioning the author, the chronology and the page number (e.g. Burkert, 1972, 24)
  • Adopt the abbreviations system of LAnnée philologique
  • Quote only the necessary passages in Ancient Greek (in Unicode)

 The Editorial Board may suggest further guidelines for articles facing specific needs of illustration or typesetting.
