About the Journal

History of Classical Scholarship (HCS) is a new academic journal that sets out to be the first periodical exclusively devoted to the history of the studies on the Greek and Roman world, in a broad and interdisciplinary sense. We welcome contributions on any aspects of the history of classical studies, in any geographical context, from the Middle Ages to the late twentieth century, and are keen to host papers covering the whole range of the discipline: from ancient history to literary studies, from epigraphy and numismatics to art history and archaeology, from textual criticism to religious and linguistic studies. We also welcome the publication of significant items from the Nachlässe of classical scholars, including letters that may shed light on matters of historical or historiographical interest.

HCS is fully open-access: it is freely available on the web, and each paper is paginated and downloadable in PDF format. It has a strong international dimension, like the subject matter that it aims to explore, and features articles written in English, French, German, Italian or Spanish. Articles published in HCS are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International Licence.

Each submission will undergo a double-blind peer-review process. The aim is to upload an accepted paper on the journal’s website as soon as it is ready to appear. We are not setting prescriptive deadlines for the submission of contributions to each individual issue. There is no binding word limit for contributions and we do not impose a single house style.

The journal is published by History of Classical Scholarship, an unincorporated association based in Newcastle upon Tyne.
