Information for CCJ Contributors

Cambridge Classical Journal (formerly Proceedings of the Cambridge Philological Society) is an annual scholarly journal, now published by Cambridge University Press, together with a full electronic archive, as part of Cambridge Journals Online.

SUBMISSION OF MANUSCRIPTS

The journal publishes articles covering all aspects of the Classical world and its reception: the editors welcome unsolicited submissions from all areas of Classical scholarship. We ask for all submissions to be in electronic format, as a suitably anonymised Word document or pdf file, sent on disk or as an email attachment to the Editors (ccjeditors@classics.cam.ac.uk).

Contributors are advised to retain a copy of the paper.

Submission of a paper is taken to imply that it has not been previously published and that it is not being considered for publication elsewhere. Authors of articles published in the journal retain copyright.

Submissions will be sent to anonymous referee(s) whose comments and recommendation will then be conveyed to the author by the editors. Authors should not include their name or any references which may identify them to the reviewer on the typescript.

PREPARATION OF MANUSCRIPTS

Authors are asked to conform to the journal’s house style, detailed here (pdf document).

SUPPLEMENTS

PCPS and CCJ supplements are occasional publications in the form of academic monographs or collected papers. Proposals for supplements are welcome, and should be sent to Dr Christopher Whitton, Emmanuel College, Cambridge, CB2 3AP, United Kingdom. Email: clw36@cam.ac.uk.

When judging proposals, the editors will look primarily to academic merit, considered in terms of (i) the quality of the research and writing, and (ii) the likely appeal to a wide, international market. Supplements can deal with any area within Classics, defined in the very broadest terms (including the reception of the Classical world and methodologies). Work at the cutting edge of the field in question is particularly invited, but more traditional work will not be discriminated against. It is unlikely that in the future CCJ will be in a position to publish Festschriften, tributes, PhD theses, or bare conference proceedings. Dr Whitton would be happy to discuss projects informally.
