Author Guidelines


SHT publishes original articles, shorter notes and reviews on various topics in humanities, but focuses on classical studies and ancient history, Neo-Latin studies, classical tradition, history of scholarship and philosophy. The contributions should be in one of the following languages: English, German, French, Latin. Translations of the articles already published in some other language are also accepted. All submissions are welcome and will be carefully considered and evaluated by at least two anonymous reviewers.

There is no minimum or maximum length for a contribution. It should be presented as a computer file (preferably DOC or RTF; other formats might be acceptable; the file may be compressed), in case of difficult formatting also in PDF format or as a print-out. Please include information about any special formatting and fonts used. The article should be accompanied by an abstract of about 5–10 lines, and a few keywords. Authors are expected to keep up-to-date copies of their submissions.

You can submit your paper online (see above) or send it as an e-mail attachment to

In citing ancient and modern works, you are free to adopt any reasonable system, provided that you are clear and consistent. We would encourage you to use the combination of parenthetic references, footnotes, and bibliography (bibliography section is mandatory). Footnotes should be numbered consecutively, and typed as such.

Greek quotations should be typed either in Greek (please include information on fonts used) or in Beta Code. For any other non-Latin characters please consult the editors. Quotations in foreign languages (including Greek and Latin) of more than a few words should, as a rule, be accompanied by a translation.

Use Arabic rather than Roman numerals wherever possible (including subdivisions of individual works). Avoid the abbreviations f. and ff. (or sq. and sqq.); use p. and pp. only when required for clarity. For the format of references and bibliography, please check one of the papers in latest issues.

Please note that as a rule, it is not possible to change the contents of your article after final publication, except for minor typographical corrections. If you want to add something or express second thoughts, this can be done in the form of appendices to the main article. (Otherwise it would not be possible for other scholars to reference to your article and be sure that the text is still the same.)
