Submission of Manuscripts
Prospective contributors should submit copies of their manuscripts in a form suitable for refereeing, editing and typesetting according to the JEA Guidelines for Contributors posted below. Submitted manuscripts are subject to anonymous refereeing.
Manuscripts accepted on the basis of anonymous referee report are then revised by contributors for final submission. Accepted manscripts are allocated to particular issues of the JEA dependent on the time taken for the refereeing process, timely submission of final manuscript, and remaining availability of space in particular issues of the journal; the decision lies with the editors. The editors will seek to include an accepted submission in the next volume in which space is available, but reserve the right to hold over a manuscript to the following edition of the journal according to circumstance. The JEA has no formal deadline for submission.
Details for manuscript submission and house style can be found in the JEA Guidelines for Contributors (version 2.3, pdf posted 09-2013).
The JEA Abbreviations for Journals and Series (version 4, pdf posted 09-2013) is a developing resource, which is likely to be revised regularly.
The JEA is committed to making research available as widely as possible. Our contributors may therefore upload copies of their articles to suitable depositories after the embargo date of 1 October following the year of publication (i.e. articles published in the 2014 volume, JEA 100, can be made public from 1 October 2015).
Back issues of the Journal can be purchased from the Society's London office or our Online Shop.
The full set of back issues of the Journal are now available digitally on JSTOR with a five-year rolling wall. The files can be viewed on screen, downloaded as PDFs, and the citation downloaded to standard bibliographical software. JSTOR requires password access, which is available as a membership "add-on" for an additional £10 per year. Regrettably, we are at present unable to facilitate payment for this via the Society's website, but payments by credit card are nonetheless accepted. Please contact the Society for further details. Those belonging to an academic institution with Athens access should already be able to access the JEA on JSTOR.
