The Amphora (Ancient World Studies) Issue of MHJ is now accepting articles and book reviews for its 2015 journal. 

Journal articles should be between 5000-8000 words and constitute an original piece of research. Manuscripts should not be under review or scheduled for publication by any other journal and should be substantially different from other published work. All manuscripts must conform to our style guide. The theme for our 2015 issue is ‘Technology’, though article submissions may be on any topic and are not restricted to this theme. However, we hope to solicit submissions approaching this theme from a broad range of angles – please visit the Amphora web site for more suggestions on engaging with ‘Technology’.

Book reviews of single books should be 1000 words in length; reviews of two related books should be 1500 words in length.

The Amphora Issue of MHJ was established in 2012. The journal publishes feature articles, peer- reviewed articles, and book reviews from researchers who work in the areas of classics, ancient history, Egyptology, archaeology (both of pre-historical and historical periods), reception studies and art history. Postgraduates and early career researchers are especially encouraged to submit work to Amphora. It is the annual second issue of The Melbourne Historical Journal, which appears on the Australian Research Council’s ERA list for 2012. This means that all articles submitted to The Amphora Issue undergo a review process that accords with the standard prescribed by the Department of Industry. The journal is available online through Gale Cengage Expanded Academic and EBSCOhost, which means that successful articles can be easily found by other scholars.
