Instructions to authors


Editorial scope and policy


The editorial council accepts unsolicited articles and news on scientific meetings in this specialization.
On a separate file, write the title of the work, the author’s personal details, organization, areas of work, home postal address, resumen and abstract of the work (in Spanish and English) of no more than 100 words each.
Works will be accepted according to external review (double-blinded system) by a member of the international refereeing system. In approving articles, committee specialists will take into account formal and stylistic aspects, coherence between objectives put forward and met, the reliability of the bibliography and consulted editions and the contribution to the specific research area.
The decision will be made with evaluation tables on ad hoc forms.


Form and preparation of manuscripts


The general style of the article, footnotes and bibliography should follow the following guidelines:

  • Program in which the file is saved: Microsoft Word for Windows.
  • Font and size: Times New Roman 12 (text), Times New Roman 10 (notes), Times New Roman 11 (bibliography).
  • Bibliographical references should be made within the text using parenthesis and including the author’s name, year and page:

E.g: Rome is a city of spectacles (Whitmarsh 2001: 78)
The bibliography should come at the end of the article –indicating the editions of classic texts and bibliography cited- in alphabetical order of authors and in chronological order when various works by the same author are cited, as follows:
Editions (cite by author)
BUFFIÈRE, F. (19892). Heráclite. Allégories d’Homère. Paris (1962).

Bibliography cited

a) Books
CLAUSS, J.J. & S.L. JOHNSTON (eds.) (1997). Medea: Essays on Medea in Myth, Literature, Philosophy and Art. Princeton University Press.
b) Chapters of books
LONG, A.A. (1990). “Filosofía postaristotélica” in EASTERLING P.E. & B.M.W. KNOX (eds.) Historia de la Literatura Clásica. Vol. I. Madrid: Gredos; 669-689.
c) Articles (with the full name of the journal)
GARRIDO, M. (2004). “Poder y género en Antígona de Sófocles” in Anales de estudios clásicos y medievales I. Neuquén; 213-221.

  • References to classics authors should be written as follows :

Homer. Odisea, 10.235
and may include the verse number in citations of Greek and Latin texts, as long as the edition used is indicated in the bibliography.

  • Textual citations should be made in parentheses. If these exceed two lines, they should go in inverted commas in a separate paragraph with 2cm indentation, single spaced.
  • Footnotes should go at the end of the page, single-spaced.
  • In italics: titles of words (Aeneid), Latin and foreign words and citations and uncommon technical terms.
  • Abbreviations to be used (Spanish texts): : siglo V a.C. / fr. 13 / 134ss. / ibid. / Cfr.
  • Greek words will go in Greek type (SGreek). Only in exceptional cases may transliteration in Latin letters and italics be used: do not mark long vowels or the iota subscripta, the letter H must be used instead of the spiritus asper and acute accents and circumflexes should be included to reflect where possible Spanish phonetics rather than Greek script: E.g. alétheia, páthos, ho élenchos, pneûma, lógos, noûs, tò sêma, tôn archôn. Do not put two accents on the same letter.
  • Do not include underlining or numbers in subheadings.
  • In the body of the text do not use underlining or bold. Where a word has to be stressed, do so using single inverted commas. Double inverted commas should only be used for textual quotations.
