You may now submit your manuscript by choosing one of the following ways: a) by email at r e d a c t e u r _ j f h r [at] m e d u s e – d – o r [dot] f r or b) by post to the Editor of the ‘Journal of Hellenic Religion’, Méduse d’Or, 26 Rue Pierre et Marie Curie, 45400, Fleury-les-Aubrais, Orléans Nord, France.

All the submitted manuscripts (both electronic and print) should be submitted to the editor. Articles in print must be submitted in triplicate, including three copies of all illustrations, photographs, drawings, and maps etc.

The manuscripts’ submission must include full name and current address and email of the author as well as a bio of maximum 120 words. The article has to include a 100- to 200-word abstract; state clearly its category (i.e., Critical Notice, Field Report, Article etc.) and field (i.e Mythology, Archaeology, Anthropology, Theology, Comparative Religious Studies, Philosophy etc.) as well as a maximum of 20 keywords.

Articles may not exceed 8,000 words – excluding, notes, endnotes, addendum, indexes and tables.

Typescripts of rejected submissions are not returned. Artwork (all intended included photographs, graphs, tables etc.) submitted must be of 300 ppi and in black and white. It is completely the responsibility of the author to seek permission for the reproduction of any art work intended to be used within the submitted article.

Greek must be typed as a clear text, using at least a 12-point font. It is strongly recommended to ensure that the quotations in Greek and Latin are accompanied by their translation into the article’s language. It is essential to keep the same transliteration of the Greek words throughout the manuscript. Latinized forms of proper Greek words or names may be used. Authors are free to follow the transliteration system of their choice, as long as it is reasonable and consistent. The editor reserves the right to modify the transliterated Greek words to ensure uniformity of the articles in the Volume.

Quotations are to be set off (not in italics). In the case of short texts, the quote will be enclosed in quotation marks in the body text. In the case of long texts, the citation will be in the form of an autonomous paragraph. Interventions by the author in the text of a quotation (deletions, additions or replacements of words or letters) shall be indicated in square brackets.

References to Ancient Works must be clarified and immediate recognizable, therefore, authors should follow LSJ (Liddell, Scott, Jones Lexicon). References always should be placed at the end of the article (endnotes) in the following form : Hom. Od. 4.1-2, Paus. 3.1.1, Llyod, 1979: 14. Try no to use f. and ff. but give the exact references. References to modern works should follow the Oxford Style citation style. The first endnote should list in full the source. All subsequent references added to endnotes should follow the Oxford Style abbreviated form as seen above.

Alphabetical list of complete bibliographic references at the end of the article.

Dates within the article should be placed as: 30 October 1953; 1830s; 6 th cent.; c. 450; 409/8, 411/10, 421/20; 250-245 BC; AD 150-300; 1997-98.

Numbers up to ten should be spelled out, unless are referencing specific quantities (4 meters, 3 km etc.).

In the case of double parentheses, the author does not use square brackets for the second-level parenthesis.

Acknowledgments are given at the end of the article, before the first endnote, and are marked with an asterisk immediately following the title.

Each submission is reviewed, normally by one to two outside referees who are asked to return their reports within six to ten weeks. After the reviews are received, authors will be informed in writing of the editor’s decision to accept, reject, or resubmit the article. In addition the editor will provide a copy of the reviewers’ reports if requested.

Prior of the author’s manuscript publication the Agreement To Publish must be completed and returned to the Editor.
