Guidelines for authors

Studia graeco-arabica considers articles submitted for publication if they conform to the following guidelines:

Scholarly content

Submissions are invited in every area of the studies on the trasmission of philosophical and scientific texts from Classical antiquity to the Middle Ages, Renaissance, and early modern times. All authors must adhere to recognized scholarly standards, include full and accurate references, and be willing and able to work with primary sources in their original languages. The language of publication is English, but papers in French, German, Italian, and Spanish are also published; the suggested length for articles is around 10.000 words.


Articles must not have been previously published elsewhere and must differ substantially from other material the author may have published. Studia graeco-arabica does not consider articles currently submitted to other journals or those that will likely be published as part of a book within the next two years or so from submission.

Peer review
Studia graeco-arabica follows a double-blind peer review process. Authors should avoid putting their names in headers or footers or refer to themselves in the body or notes of the article; the title and abstract alone should appear on the first page of the article.

For more information please refer to the Peer Review Criteria

Authors affiliations

The submitted draft should have an additional page having authors full names and institutional affiliations, as well as mailing addresses and phone numbers.

Manuscript preparation
Articles should be double-spaced throughout. Greek, Arabic, Hebrew, and Syriac scripts are allowed, provided that they conform with the Unicode standard.
Transliteration system:
a, ā b t ṯ ǧ ḥ ḫ d ḏ r z s š ṣ ḍ ṭ ẓ ʿ ġ f q k l m n h w, ū  y, ī  ʾ 
ʿayn and hamza should be clearly distinguished from one another; initial hamza is dropped; the article al- is lower case except when it appears as the first word of a sentence or footnote.

The contributions accepted for publication are edited according to the style of the journal. In order to facilitate the editing, authors are asked to conform to the following examples:
