Journal of Late Antiquity (JLA) is the award-winning first international English-language journal dedicated to the study of Late Antiquity writ large. The Journal provides a venue for multi-disciplinary coverage of all the methodological, geographical, and chronological facets of Late Antiquity. All of Late Antiquity will be represented -- from the late and post-classical world up to the Carolingian period, and including the late Roman, western European, Byzantine, Sassanid, and Islamic worlds, ca. 250-800 CE.

Journal of Late Antiquity (JLA) is the award-winning first international English-language journal dedicated to the study of Late Antiquity writ large. The Journal provides a venue for multi-disciplinary coverage of all the methodological, geographical, and chronological facets of Late Antiquity. All of Late Antiquity will be represented -- from the late and post-classical world up to the Carolingian period, and including the late Roman, western European, Byzantine, Sassanid, and Islamic worlds, ca. 250-800 CE. JLA is essential, not only as a space for scholarship dealing with practical and theoretical issues, but, in particular, to bridge the gap between literary and material culture scholarship. One of the primary goals of the journal is to highlight the status of Late Antiquity as a discrete historical period in its own right. JLA honors include the Association of American Publishers PROSE Award for Professional and Scholarly Excellence as Best New Journal in the Social Sciences & Humanities for 2010, and Honorable Mention/Runner-Up for Best New Journal in 2009 by the Council of Editors of Learned Journals (CELJ). JLA also is a two-time winner (2013 and 2019) of the Codex Award, given once per year by the Council of Editors of Learned Journals in recognition of the best journal on any subject before 1500.

JLA peer review

All articles submitted for review to the Journal of Late Antiquity (JLA) must be original work, make a substantial contribution to the field, and engage with the relevant primary sources and modern scholarship. They must not have appeared previously in another venue, and they must not be currently under review elsewhere. All submissions should be sent directly to the editor, who assesses (if applicable, in consultation with the editorial board) whether they meet these basic criteria and conform to the stated submission guidelines. Each article that is vetted successfully then is sent to two expert readers, who are asked to submit their confidential anonymous reports to the editor within three months. JLA employs a double-blind review system, and careful measures are taken to ensure the integrity of this process from start to finish. Authors whose articles are accepted for publication typically are allotted up to three months to complete any necessary revisions before submission of the final draft. In some cases, readers may recommend that an article be accepted pending certain revisions, and in such a case an author may be given the option of revising and resubmitting, whereupon the revised draft may be sent to one or both of the original readers who will then determine whether the revision is satisfactory.
