Members of Humanist may be interested in the following
anouncement. Apologies for those who have seen this before.
Scholia aims to provide critical reviews of publications in the field of
ancient Greek and Roman art, archaeology, history, literature and
philosophy as soon as possible after they appear. The editors also
believe that reviews should be as detailed, informative and
comprehensive as possible. In order to make it possible for the journal
to provide reviews of this kind, given the constraints under
which it is produced, reviews will be published over the international
electronic network to registered subscribers. Subscription to the
electronic reviews is free and without restriction. Once published, the
reviews will be archived at the University of Natal, Durban and the
University of Pennsylvania, USA, from which they can be retrieved by
Gopher or FTP. Instructions on how to retrieve reviews electronically
will be published in the journal itself along with a list of books received.
The editor reserves the right to publish the full text of a review in the
journal itself. Contributors of reviews are therefore requested to
submit an abstract (300-500 words) together with the full text of their
review. Contributions should preferably be sent by e-mail or on disk
followed by one clearly printed copy by air mail.
