Editorial Policy 

The Classical Outlook is a journal for teachers; it publishes substantive yet lively and stimulating articles, reports, instructional aids, poetry, reviews, and other material of interest and use to active classroom teachers of Latin, Greek, and Classical Humanities in the schools (elementary, middle, and secondary) and in the colleges and universities. CO seeks to keep its readers up-to-date on developments within our profession and to stimulate discussion and thinking about both the broad educational aspects of teaching classical languages and humanities and the techniques and practices of actual classroom teaching. All material for inclusion in CO, whether it be articles, reports of committees or of individual research, materials for use in the classroom, or reviews of books or other media sources, is carefully selected and edited with a view to helping the Classics teacher both in the classroom and in the wider roles that teachers play within our educational systems, our profession, and our society at large.

Submissions Guidelines for Articles

Manuscripts should be addressed to the Editor, Ronnie Ancona, and emailed as an attachment to outlook@aclclassics.org. The name and version number of the word-processing package used should be identified. Authors should retain a copy (rejected manuscripts will not be returned). Manuscripts should be in general conformity with stylistic guidelines detailed in The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed. (Chicago, 2010). Documentation, where necessary, may be in the form of parenthetical citations within the text itself, keyed to a list of References at the end. Parenthetical citations should include, in the case of modern works, author’s last name and page number(s), and, in the case of ancient works, author’s name and title, as abbreviated in the Oxford Classical Dictionary, 4th ed., with book and section references in Arabic numerals. Footnotes are accepted. Classics journals and other works cited in the References section should be abbreviated as in the current volume of L’Année Philologique; all other titles should be spelled out in full. Articles that require the printing of Greek are accepted. All submissions are evaluated anonymously by at least two referees. To ensure anonymity, authorship and affiliation should only appear in an accompanying email or cover letter, not in the manuscript itself. Editorial decisions will be made as promptly as possible. Authors of accepted articles will be expected to format their final copy according to a style sheet to be provided. Authors of longer articles are provided 25 offprints; authors of shorter articles and book reviews are provided two copies of the entire issue. Articles published in The Classical Outlook are indexed in L’Année Philologique, where appropriate; reviews are indexed in Book Review Index. Authors of accepted articles should supply an abstract (maximum 100 words), which will be sent to the American office of L’Année Philologique.

Submissions Guidelines for Poetry 

Manuscripts should be addressed to the Editor, Ronnie Ancona, Classics, Hunter College, 695 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10065, or e-mailed as an attachment to outlook@aclclassics.org. The name and version number of the word-processing package used should be identified. E-mail attachments are preferred. Authors should retain a copy (rejected manuscripts will not be returned). Translations from the Latin or Greek should be accompanied by a copy of the original; original Latin or Greek should be accompanied by a literal English translation. The editor will forward original English verse to Christopher Childers (Baltimore, MD), and translations and original Latin and Greek verse to Diane Arnson Svarlien (Lexington, KY). Authors should receive a publication decision within 3-4 months. Authors of poems are provided two copies of the issue in which their work appears.

Submission Guidelines for Book Reviews 

Interested reviewers are encouraged to consult the Books and Materials Received section of each issue for a current list of available books. Reviewers can then submit a letter of interest to the Editor (outlook@aclclassics.org). Some books listed may have already been assigned to reviewers. Books for review in CO should be evaluated, at least in part, from the point of view of their potential value to the classroom teacher in the schools or colleges. Reviews should be limited to 1000 words (a joint review can be 1500 words) and emailed to the Editor within 3-4 months.
