Statement of Editorial Policy

CP is devoted to publishing the best scholarly thought on all aspects of Greek and Roman antiquity, including literature, languages, anthropology, history, social life, philosophy, religion, art, material culture, and the history of classical studies. We also welcome contributions on the reception of classical antiquity, as well as on the interaction of Greece and Rome with other ancient cultures. CP is committed to both rigorous scholarship and the development of new approaches, and seeks to represent the full range of intellectual diversity across the field. Traditionally, we have published both longer articles and short notes. The length of contributions varies with the subject matter, but we do not normally consider submissions above 45 double-spaced pages. Authors are limited to one manuscript submission to CP per year.
