Conference Proceedings


Proceedings of the Fifth Interdisciplinary Symposium

on the Heritage of Western Greece

Preamble: We are planning to publish the conference proceedings as a volume in our series, The Heritage of Western Greece, which is indexed on JSTOR and available open access worldwide.  Essays may also be considered for other volumes in the series, including a planned volume on the topic of Gymnastics, Athletics, and Agon in Plato. Papers will be selected according to quality and relevance to the theme; publication is not guaranteed.   Submit manuscripts and images by email to no later than October 1, 2019.  The book will be published in spring 2020.

Form of the Manuscript:  Please format your manuscript using University of Chicago’s guidelines, which calls for citations to be placed in the notes, without additional bibliography. Manuscripts should be in English (we will help those for whom English is not the first language). They should be submitted in Microsoft Word (.docx) 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 5,000 words in length, including notes.  Longer papers are rarely accepted, except from keynote speakers.

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 should be flush left and bold, typed in the normal style.

Notes and Citations:  Cite texts in footnotes with no separate bibliography, use a full citation the first time, shortened thereafter.  Please follow the “Notes & Bibliography” version of the Chicago Manual of Style, or refer to the latest edition of the proceedings for a model.

Acknowledgments: if desired should appear in a footnote attached to the title or conclusion.

About the Author(s): In a footnote to your name, include a brief statement

Additional Guidelines

Artwork: Artwork should be submitted in separate .jpg files with at least 300 dpi for grey scale and color pictures (RGB) and 600 dpi  for black and white pictures and drawings. Tables and charts should be submitted in .xls (Excel). Their places in the text clearly marked, i.e. (Fig. 1 here).  Include appropriate captions for each image. 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. Authors are responsible for guaranteeing their legal permission to use any and all material submitted.

Spelling:  Use American spelling conventions.

Punctuation: For possessives of proper names ending in s or another sibilant, add ’s, e.g. Childs’s Introduction, Jones’s views, but the chorus’ song.

Quotations: If more than four lines are quoted, indent .3 inch from left margin. Otherwise, quotes should be enclosed in double quotation marks.
