SYNOPSIS is an index to the scholarly publications on Greek Studies for the benefit of those who work in the field. Research and review journals, conference proceedings, books, monographs and dissertations (9,000 entries for 1992, 14,000 for 1993) are indexed in the areas of Classical, Hellenistic, Biblical Greek, Byzantine, Medieval and Modern Greek Studies without defining precisely their lines of separation. Author, Subject, Text, Geographical and Name indexes are included. The Journal will also publish occasionally reviews and bibliographical studies, calls for papers and announcements of scholarly conferences.

The languages of the Journal are English and Greek. Titles in other languages will be cited in the original language or translated in English. The editorial language is English. SYNOPSIS is published concurrently in printed and searchable electronic form for PC and MAC compatible computers.

The articles indexed or published are selected only on their scholarly value and without prejudice in respect to the opinions of the authors. Reader-submitted titles for indexing are only accepted if they appear in the journals or publishers lists that are indexed by the Journal. Suggestions for the selection of the journals to be indexed should be submitted to the editorial board through the editor, the associate editors or the editorial advisory board.

All announcements, forthcoming events, publishers lists, etc., should be sent to the editorial office (address above). Journals or books to be considered for indexing should be submitted in the form of one hard copy within 3 months after the end of the year of publication. The editorial board reserves the right to approve publications submitted for indexing on the basis of a subjective evaluation of archival importance and accessibility. Printed material submitted for indexing will not be returned to the sender.


SYNOPSIS publishes regularly only indexing lists and thus does not accept papers for publication. Bibliographical reviews will sometime be invited by the Editorial Board. Authors of such papers should submit them in triplicate to the editorial office, preferably in electronic format by file transfer, if possible. The form of the papers should comply with the format of the Classical Quarterly Journal, published by the Oxford/The Clarendon Press. The length of the papers should be, in general, less than 20 typewritten pages size A4 or 8 1/2 x 11 in, double spaced, font size 12 points. An ASCII text file on a floppy diskette formatted for DOS or Apple Mac should be supplied together with the final manuscript. Authors who, for special cases, wish to submit longer papers should communicate with the editorial office before they submit their paper. The associate editor with expertise on the subject will conduct the review process. Competent referees will assist the editorial board in reaching an editorial decision.
