Conference Proceedings


Proceedings of the Third Interdisciplinary Symposium

on the Heritage of Western Greece

Preamble:  We plan to publish the proceedings of our third symposium on the theme of “Mimesis”.  Papers should be submitted to before October 1, 2017.  Only papers presented at the conference will be considered. Papers selected for publication will be notified in due course.  Publication is not guaranteed.

Form of the Manuscript:  In general we follow the University of Chicago’s guidelines for manuscript preparation.  Manuscripts should be in grammatical, idiomatic English, proofed by a native speaker (unless we agreed to arrange for translation and/or language correction).  They should be submitted in Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx, or .rtf) single-spaced, using Times New Roman 12 point font.  Minimize formatting and use the “normal” style throughout—do not assign styles to headings, block quotes, etc.  Submit illustrations, maps and tables, in separate files with indications in the text where you want them to appear, i.e. [figure one here].  Contributions should be about 3,000-5,000 words in length, excluding notes.  Authors wishing to provide shorter or longer contributions should discuss their reasons with the editors first.

Manuscripts should include the following elements:

Title & Name: Full title of the article and your name, centered, above the body text

Body Text:  Align text left, do not justify or hyphenate line breaks.  Indent the first line of all new paragraphs .3 inch.  Leave no extra space between paragraphs.  Section headers are required and should be flush left and bold, typed in the normal style.

Notes and Citations:  Please follow the “Notes & Bibliography” version of the Chicago Manual of Style.  This means you cite texts in endnotes, using a full citation the first time and shorted citations thereafter—no final bibliography is required.  Additional endnotes are permitted, but they should be kept to a minimum.

Acknowledgments: if desired should appear in an endnote attached to the title or conclusion.

About the Author(s): Include a brief statement (two or three sentences) including your affiliation, full address and e-mail address(es) you are happy to see published. Summarize your research interests, and recent field projects and major publications.

Additional Guidelines

Artwork: Artwork and tables should be submitted in separate  .jpeg files with their places in the text clearly marked, i.e. [figure 1 here].  Please follow the University of Chicago Guidelines for preparation and submission of artwork.

Copyright:  If the artwork you submit has been published elsewhere or is otherwise copyrighted, we must have a letter of permission from the copyright holder granting worldwide print and electronic reproduction rights, in perpetuity. Any artwork is not your own, must have its source clearly identified. Authors are responsible for guaranteeing their legal permission to use any and all material submitted.

Italics: Please put foreign words in Italics and either transliterate Greek words, i.e. aretē, or ensure that the Greek font can be read in Microsoft Word by using a Unicode font.  For more on Greek fonts click here.

Numbers: Spell out numbers one to nine; express all numbers greater than nine with Arabic numeral. For dates and times, follow these examples: 40 hours; 30 October 1997; 18th Dynasty; 16th-century buildings (hyphenated); 1980s (no apostrophe); 1978-79 (not 1978-9); 333 BCE, 85-135 CE.

Spelling: Either British or American spelling may be used, but do not mix these spelling conventions.

Measurements and mathematical symbols: Distance, area, volume and weight must be expressed in metric units; abbreviations should not have full stops (periods), thus: 5 m; 10 km; 15 ha; 200 sq m (not 200 m2).

Punctuation: For possessives of proper names ending in s or another sibilant, add ’s, e.g. Childs’s Introduction, Jones’s views, Harris’s work.

Quotations: If more than four lines are quoted, indent from left margin. Otherwise, quotes should be enclosed in double quotation marks, single quotation marks being used only for quotes within a quotation.
