Peer Review Policy

TAPA welcomes original contributions on any topic related to the ancient Greek and Roman worlds. The language of publication is English. It is the policy of TAPA not to consider work that has been published previously or is being evaluated for publication in another venue; furthermore, while a paper is being considered for TAPA, authors may not submit it elsewhere.  In submitting to TAPA, authors agree to be bound by this policy.

Submissions are refereed anonymously, in a double-blind review process. The Editor reserves the right not to send out for review submissions deemed inappropriate for TAPA or submissions that have large gaps in annotation or exhibit a significant lack of proofreading. Submissions are reviewed in the order in which they are received. Authors are notified by the editor, generally within 2-4 months after submission, of the decision to accept, reject, or revise and resubmit. The criteria for reviewers are three: (1) Is this an original and significant contribution to the field? (2) Is the argument couched in terms that are likely to interest a broad range of classicists? (Note that this does not exclude technical discussions; we ask only that the stakes be made as clear as possible to the members of the Society for Classical Studies [SCS] as a whole.) (3) Is the article clearly and engagingly written?
