Lampeter Working Papers in Classics


What are Working Papers?

Working Papers are pre-publication versions of academic articles, book chapters, or reviews. Papers posted on this site are in progress, under submission, or in press and forthcoming elsewhere. Such series are very common in many academic disciplines, but they still appear to be quite rare in Classics. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first Working Papers series in this field to appear in the UK. Its declared model are the Princeton/Stanford Working Papers in Classics, which were set up in 2005.

Lampeter Working Papers in Classics are offered on this site by the individual authors, in the interests of scholarship. Readers are warmly encouraged to let authors have feedback on any aspect of their study. Working Papers are not refereed. Papers in this series may be in various stages of completion – this is why the “Version number” must be indicated on the cover of each paper (see infra).

The form and content of papers are the responsibility of individual authors. The format (other than the cover sheet) is not standardized. The quality of these Working Papers is not guaranteed by the Departments of Classics at Lampeter, or by the organizers of this site. We just expect the paper to be fully referenced, and not to contain excessive personal polemic. We normally do not host book reviews, although we may be happy to publish longer review articles (exceeding 3,000 words). We welcome papers in English, French, German and Italian.

Papers may be downloaded from this site by individuals, for their own use, subject to the ordinary rules governing fair use of professional scholarship (see further, Copyright statement). Comments on papers or questions about their content should be sent directly to the author, at his or her email address.

Working Papers may be cited without seeking prior permission from the author. The proper form for citing Working Papers in this series is:

Author (year). Title. Version #.# Month. Lampeter Working Papers in Classics.

Posting a paper on this site does not preclude simultaneous or subsequent publication elsewhere, including other Working Papers series. The copyright of a Working Paper is held by the author or by his or her assignee: see Copyright Statement.

Downloadable copies of Working Papers will be removed from this site if and when authors indicate to the website coordinators that they have been published elsewhere, or if it comes to the website coordinators’ attention that the paper has appeared in print. A link will then be created with the full reference to the published version of the paper. Once a paper has been published elsewhere, it is preferable to cite it in its final, published version, rather than in its Working Paper version.
