The Ciceronian Society will begin biannual publication of a peer-reviewed online journal, entitled Pietas, in Winter/Spring 2022. Each issue will feature scholarly articles and book reviews that further the intellectual tradition of the Ciceronian Society.
About the Ciceronian Society
The mission of the Ciceronian Society is the “Study of Tradition, Place, and ‘Things Divine.’” The journal recognizes that these themes frequently overlap disciplinary boundaries, and we will consider pieces from scholars throughout and beyond the academy. Historically, papers delivered at our conferences (and published in the previously affiliated journal, Anamnesis) focused on traditionalism, republican citizenship, decentralism, and liberty. Scholars focusing on lesser-known texts, events, and thinkers are also encouraged to submit articles and reviews for consideration. Authors have typically come from among those studying the classics, political science, philosophy, history, theology, literature, and economics. Questions about specific projects, and whether they correspond to the journal’s objectives, can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Length and Abstract
Articles should be between 9,000 and 11,000 words in length. Exceptions may be made for articles of unusually high quality (such submissions require consultation with and permission of the editors). Book reviews should not exceed 1,500 words. All articles must contain an abstract of approximately 200 words and 2-6 keywords.
Unicode And Non-Roman Fonts
If the submission contains non-Roman scripts, the author must also submit a .pdf of the article displaying all characters correctly.
Files should be sent as attachments to email@example.com in Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) format.
Submitted manuscripts must follow the Chicago Manual of Style. If a different style is used, then the editors will request the author to change the style upon acceptance. All references must be in consecutively numbered footnotes. First time references must be cited in full in footnotes, followed by an abbreviated citation.
The optimal length is 1000-1500 words, but the editors will consider longer and shorter submissions when appropriate. They must contain a critical discussion of the publication(s) under review, rather than merely summarizing the contents. Reviews of greater length (several related titles) may be submitted as a review article, and may or may not contain footnotes and a bibliography.
Book reviews follow the same style guidelines as articles, with the exception that references to pages within the book review are placed in parentheses in the text itself.
The manuscript should begin with bibliographic and list price information on the book being reviewed. Arrange the information in the following order: Author Name. Book Title: Subtitle of the Book. Place: Publisher, YEAR. pp roman + pp. ISBN: NUMBER. Price.
This journal uses a double-blind peer-review system. Once submitted, the editors will make every effort to have submissions evaluated in a timely manner. Authors must insert a blank page in the beginning of their document with their full name and e-mail address. This page will only be used by the editors, and will not be sent to the reviewers.
