Authors’ guidelines for ACD
Authors are advised to closely follow the authors’ guidelines and consult recent back issues of ACD to determine if their submission is appropriate in terms of general content.
A short English abstract of the article (10 lines long) and a list of English keywords are required to be provided at the beginning of the paper.
Authors should provide their status, institution and their own e-mail address at the beginning of the paper.
Passages from ancient languages should always be translated.
References to specialist literature should be given in footnotes; references to ancient sources should appear in the main text.
A list of cited works (Bibliography) should be given at the end of the paper in alphabetic order, according to the following pattern:
- von Albrecht 1997 = von Albrecht, M.: Geschichte der römischen Literatur. München.
- Todd 1978 = Todd, R.: Monism and Immanence. The Foundations of Stoic Physics. In: Rist, J. M. (ed.): The Stoics. Berkeley, Los Angeles, London, 137–160.
- Manacorda 1978 = Manacorda, D.: The Ager Cosanus and the Production of the Amphorae of Sestius: New Evidence and Reassessment. JRS 68, 122–131.
The format pattern to be followed for citing in footnotes is the following: author’s surname, year of publication, comma, page number(s). E.g. Alföldy 1975, 83–138.
To distinguish between several items published by the same author and in the same year, authors should use lowercase letters both in footnotes and in Bibliography.
The pattern for references to classical authors is the following: Hor., Sat. 1,1,29–30.
Names of classical authors and their works should be abbreviated according to OLD while the title of periodicals should appear according to L’Année Philologique. Periodicals not mentioned here should be indicated with their full title.
