Once your article has been accepted, JECS requires a clean, revised, paper copy along with an electronic attachment containing an exact copy of the revised piece. We prefer Microsoft Word (PC or MAC format acceptable). Please indicate what version of the software you are using (e.g., MS Word for Windows 6.0).
Beside the revisions you make based on the comments from the reviewers of your article and your own changes, you should be sure to:

The Hopkins Press Journals Ethics and Malpractice Statement can be found at the ethics-and-malpractice page.
All articles submitted for review to the Journal of Early Christian Studies must be original work that makes a substantial scholarly contribution to the study of early Christianity, on the basis of wide engagement with the primary sources in the original languages and relevant scholarship on the topic in multiple languages. Simultaneous submissions with other journals is not allowed, and the Journal does not print reprints or translations. Submissions are initially reviewed by the editorial staff–the Journal’s editor and associate editors–in order to determine if these basic criteria have been met. If so, then the submission is sent out for review to two different readers, who are asked to return their reviews within two months. All reviews for the Journal of Early Christian Studies are double-blind. We ask our reviewers to evaluate the articles specifically for their 1) originality and contribution to the field; 2) engagement with the primary sources; and 3) presentation of the argument and quality of writing. Once the two initial reviews are obtained, the editorial staff decide whether the article should be accepted, rejected, or offered an opportunity to revise and resubmit for a second review. In the latter case, authors are given six months to resubmit their revised version. At that stage another round of double-blind review takes place, and reviewers are again asked to return their reviews within two months. Once these are received, a final decision is made whether to publish or reject: there is no possibility for subsequent revision and resubmission at this stage. The timetable for review can vary considerably, from as little as month or two for an article that is quickly reviewed and accepted after the first review, to as much as a year, if the author takes six months to revise and resubmit and reviewers are not as prompt in delivering their reviews as they have promised.
