The Hopkins Press Journals Ethics and Malpractice Statement can be found at the ethics-and-malpractice page.
Arethusa publishes original interdisciplinary work related to Classical Studies. We do not accept papers simultaneously submitted to other journals, translations of previously published papers, or reprints.
When a submission arrives, the editor reviews it and eliminates obviously unsuitable submissions (e.g., off topic, illiterate, unsuited to the mission of the journal, clearly lacking in grasp of the subject matter and/or scholarship). A member of the editorial board then recommends whether or not it is suitable to send out to external reviewers. If the recommendation is positive, the editor sends it out to two external reviewers; the review process is double-blind. We ask reviewers to consider originality, clarity, and quality of scholarship; recommend whether MS should be published (with or without revisions), revised and resubmitted, or rejected; suggest clarifications that would enable the author to clarify his or her argument; suggest supplemental bibliography.
If reports are positive, the editor accepts, requests submission of final copy, and evaluates the final version of the MS. We usually do not ask authors to revise and resubmit. If we feel confident the author can do so successfully, we ask the author to revise based on the readers’ reports. We send the revised article to a third reader. Editor makes the final call. We used to ask referees to return reports within 2 months, but now suggest 4 weeks to try to shorten the review process. Unfortunately, it often takes several months for the reports to come in. Decisions are made very quickly once we have both reports. Time to publication once articles are submitted varies depending on whether we have one or more theme volumes in the production queue. We normally publish within three to six months of receipt of final copy.
