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 submitted article.
How articles are reviewed
All submitted articles are read by the editorial staff.
If a submission seems obviously inappropriate to SGA, it may be rejected without entering the review process.
Manuscripts judged to be of potential interest to our readership are sent for formal review to at least two reviewers. The review process involves two stages. The author may be asked to make changes after either the first or the second stage; the article may also be rejected after either review. The comments of our anonymous reviewers will be passed on to the author, whether or not the essay is accepted.
Studia graeco-arabica does not release referees’ identities to authors or to other reviewers. The journal is committed to rapid editorial decisions.
When articles are accepted
We try to publish articles within twelve months of the date of submission. Between acceptance and publication, articles are edited for grammatical accuracy, felicity of writing, and accordance with the Guidelines of SGA.
Once the editing process is complete, authors receive page proofs electronically, which they are expected to read carefully and return within two weeks.
After publication, authors are provided with PDF offprints of their published articles and one copy of the issue.
