B A B E S C H Annual Papers on Mediterranean Archaeology



The BABESCH Supplements is a series of books in the field of Mediterranean Antiquity, which complements the annual journal. The series includes monographs, as well as the proceedings of symposia and edited volumes. The topics range from Mediterranean Prehistory to the Early Middle Ages. The hallmark of the series is the high quality standard, which is evident from the academic peer-reviewing, as well as from the careful editing and the many figures and (colored) illustrations.

The volumes in the BABESCH Supplements are subject to academic anonymous peer review.

BABESCH is always interested to publish original research and conference proceedings in the wider field of Mediterranean Antiquity and Archaeology. In order to propose a book in the Supplements, the following guidelines apply.

Guidelines for submission of manuscripts

Proposals and/or requests may be sent to chairman of the BABESCH Supplements Committee at the correspondence address.

Please make sure that your proposal includes the following information:
- Full contact information and academic affiliations
- A summary of the book's content (ca. 500 words) and a preliminary table of contents.
- In case of a volume with multiple articles: a full list of contributors and the extent to which they have agreed to participate
- A description (ca. 100 words) of the scientific impact of the book
- An estimate of the total number of words (or signs); the total number of figures and the total number of colored figures
- A schedule for publication and a provisional date for the submission of the final manuscript

All proposals will be evaluated by the BABESCH Supplements Committee. Anonymous peer review is part of the decision procedure. Generally, you will be informed on the committee's decision within 10 weeks after submission of the proposal.
Books in the BABESCH Supplements usually do not have more than 350 pages and contain a restricted number of colored figures. In case the text and/or the figures exceed the standards, the publisher may require additional funds from the applicant.
In case your proposal is accepted for publication, you will be asked to submit an abstract of ca. 100 words. Also, you will regularly be asked to inform BABESCH about the progress in preparing the manuscript.
With regards to the editorial preparation of your manuscript, please follow our instructions for authors.
Preparation for print of the manuscript will be done in cooperation with the BABESCH editorial office.
