Scope and editorial policy

Revista Synthesis accepts unpublished work and collaborations on all areas included in the concepts of Greek Philology, Philosophy and Literatures, and its reception in later authors. The editors of Revista Synthesis do not necessarily share the scientific views expressed by the authors.

Original articles will be evaluated by the International Refereeing Committee and, where necessary, by other specialists of recognised prestige, who will take into account in approving the text the originality of the article, the writing style and how it fits with editorial guidelines, as well as the seriousness of the Bibliography and editions used, and will express their opinion on evaluation tables in ad hoc forms.

Work will be accepted if it receives two positive evaluations, which in all cases will be confidential.

After being accepted, work will be published according to available space.



Form and preparation of manuscripts

The body of the work should follow the following editorial guidelines for Revista Synthesis:
1.- Concise and informative title.
2.- Full name and surnames of author(s).
3.- Organization that author(s) belong to.
4.- The floppy disk with the article text and a printed copy should be accompanied by an abstract in the original language of the work and in English, preceding the article in the publication, no longer than 150 words, and 3 to 6 keywords in the original language of the work and English, to feed the journal’s databank and that of TOCS-IN (Tables of Contents of Journals of Interest to Classicists).
[Work originally written in English should be accompanied by an abstract and keywords in Spanish]
5.- The article should be no longer than 20 pages, up to 40,000 characters, including footnotes. Text in Times New Roman 12, 1.5 spaced, on A4 page (21x29.7), on a single side, with upper, lower, left and right margins of 3cm. Notes should be numbered consecutively at the end of the article, in letter size 11 and single-spaced.
6.- Articles may be presented and published in the author’s original language and citations in other languages should go in inverted commas. For example, for an author writing in Spanish (...)la denominación de Whitman, “The anatomy of Nothingness”, en 1964...
Isolated words or self-contained phrases in a language different to the language of the article’s text should be written in italics to indicate this to the editor:
E.g., in Spanish: (...)son el preludio del clímax báquico, que progresa in crescendo desde la mención ...

7.- Citations in Greek should be reasonable brief. Cases of translations of Greek texts should appear entirely in italics, to indicate this to the editor. Where possible, citations in Greek should be typed in Athenian font, if the author does not have this font, another Greek font may be used, and this should be attached in the floppy disk.
8.- Remember not to leave a space before a comma, colon, full-stop or semi-colon:
E.g.: En efecto,
Do not leave a space between parentheses, hyphens or inverted commas and the text contained in them. Footnote numbers should come after the punctuation mark:
E.g.: (...) human life and divine eternity. 6
            (...) also belong to prehistory, 9, so that...
