The manuscripts – in Italian, Spanish, French, English, or Portuguese – can still be sent by e-mail to the following email address:

Peer-review process

All papers and notes proposed for publication on Incidenza dell’Antico are subjected to review, according to a double-anonymous peer review model, by two Italian or foreign experts, at least one of whom is external to the Editorial Board and the Scientific Committee. The list of reviewers is published every two years, and no association with the essays examined is made explicit.

Guidelines for proposing the paper

Papers intended for the ‘Saggi’ section must respect the limit of 65,000 characters (including spaces, excluding bibliography); those to the ‘Note’ section 30,000 characters (including spaces, excluding bibliography); those to the ‘Discussioni’ 20,000 (including spaces, excluding bibliography).

In exceptional cases, with the agreement of the Editorial Board, more extensive essays and notes may be accepted.

Once the articles (‘Saggi’ and ‘Note’) have passed preliminary evaluation by the Editorial Board and the Scientific Committee, they will be sent to two anonymous scientific reviewers (double-blind peer review). Authors are therefore requested to remove references that would allow them to be identified: these, together with the Author’s name, affiliation and institutional e-mail address, will be added after the evaluation is completed.

Each Author will receive a pdf extract of their contribution when the issue comes out. Authors are requested not to upload the full abstract on their (or similar) pages for at least 18 months; during this time, the first page may be uploaded, linking back to the journal page.
