Policy

Leeds International Classical Studies publishes publishes articles and interim discussion papers on all aspects of Greek and Roman antiquity, and of the history of the classical tradition. It will be organised around a growing number of thematic clusters. Most of these clusters will be based on the themes of meetings of the Leeds International Classics Seminar. However, LICS is not the proceedings of the Seminar, and its editorial process is separate from the organisation of Seminar meetings. The editors will assess papers offered for publication, and will seek the advice of referees where appropriate. Hence contributors to the Seminar are under no obligation to offer their papers for publication in LICS, and papers given at the Seminar will not necessarily be accepted for publication in LICS.

Because LICS is not the proceedings of the Seminar, the editors will be happy to consider for publication papers not given at Seminar meetings:

(i) Existing thematic clusters are open to additional contributions. We cannot issue an open call for papers or undertake to consider unsolicited manuscripts: because we are operating on an open access basis our editorial resources are limited, and will vary from time to time for particular themes. But if you are interested in contributing a paper on any existing theme, you should feel free to contact the editors at the address below to explore the possibility before you send your contribution to us. You should also take note of the guidelines for contributors.

(ii) Additional thematic clusters may be added from time to time. Some of these will arise from other activities in which the School of Classics at Leeds is involved; others will reflect the research interests of individual members of staff at Leeds. But we would also welcome the opportunity to host clusters edited or co-edited by colleagues from other universities (we aim, in any case, to broaden the editorial team beyond Leeds once we are established). Again, please contact the editors if you are interested in pursuing this possibility.

(iii) Because of its low cost and increasing technical flexibility, electronic publication offers a way to distribute material that might be difficult to publish in a conventional journal (for example, because of its length, its technical nature, or the complexity of its presentation). The editors would be happy to consider proposals of this nature as well.
