New Classicists is an online periodical aimed at providing a publication platform for postgraduate students in any field that relates to Antiquity. Our advisory board members aid in sourcing international academics for the two-person, blind peer reviewing of each accepted article. We aim to publish at least one journal a year.
Thanks to generous funding from the Classics department at King's College London, the journal is an open access publication.
If you are a postgraduate student of any recognised institution, or are within two years of completing a degree, and you would like to have an article peer reviewed and published, please submit a finished draft, of up to 8000 words, along with a 2-300 word abstract. Articles can be submitted at any time during the year, but the peer reviewing process can take up to three months, so bear this in mind if you want your article included in a particular edition. Please use the Harvard referencing style for modern sources and the Oxford style for ancient sources, with footnotes, if required, at the bottom of each page. For more information, please see this referencing guide or our previous editions. All translations of ancient languages must be included in your article.
Each article will be assessed for suitability and an outcome will be forwarded to you within two weeks of this date. Articles must not have been previously published or submitted to another journal for consideration.
We are also looking for book reviews of recent works on Antiquity. Please contact the editor for more information if you would like to submit a book review.
In the meantime, please follow us on our social media sites and spread the word to your fellow postgrad students, colleagues and friends!
