Information for contributors

It is no longer stricly required for a paper or edition to appear in CIMAGL that it be a result of work done in Copenhagen or in collaboration with scholars here. We shall, however, continue to demand some sort of Copenhagen relevance: papers and editions will only be accepted if they fall within the fields of interest of the Copenhagen group of Greek and Latin scholars, and we do not promise to evaluate unsolicited contributions.

So, please do not submit any paper or edition without first contacting one of the editors for a premiminary assessment of its suitability for publication in CIMAGL. If the editor contacted gives the go-ahead, send the contribution by e-mail to the editor-in chief. It will then be subjected to a peer review. Accepted contributions will be published on the net as fast as possible. Publication will take place on a running basis, each volume of the electronic CIMAGL simply consisting of what has been published during a particular year.

CIMAGL publishes no book reviews.

Copyright will rest with the Saxo Institute, but copying for non-commercial purposes will be permitted, and the authors will have the right to reprint any article or edition in a volume containing collected papers of their own, providing that they notify the editor-in-chief and in the reprint provide the bibliographical data for the original publication in CIMAGL. To obtain permission for other re-use, contact the editor-in-chief.

CIMAGL publishes articles in English, German and French. Cimagl welcomes editions of Greek and Latin texts.

CIMAGL allows quite some variation in format between the individual contributions. Here are the few basic rules:

  • Unless otherwise agreed, manuscripts must be submitted as RTF-files and in a shape that is basically ready for publication without reformatting.

  • Printed area, page numbers not included, height x width: 190 mm (maximum) x 125 mm (precisely). To achieve this, specify A4 size and set margins at 5.25 cm top and bottom, 4.25 cm left and right.

  • Times New Roman or similar typeface, 12 points for main text, 10 points for footnotes. Exceptions can be negotiated, but sans serif typefaces are banished.

  • Notes as footnotes at bottom of page, numbering restarting on each new page.

  • Start with title, centred and in bold face. Below it author’s name in bold italics, also centred.

  • Page numbers on top of page, to the left on even and to the right on odd pages. The numbers will eventually be replaced by new ones.

Contributors are free to use their preferred quotation style as long as it is consistent and easily understandable.
