Accepts Contributions in Open Access


Giornale Italiano di Filologia is a well-established international journal in classical philology, a field of study that it considers in its wide range and inherent interdisciplinarity. The journal thus welcomes contributions from linguists, historians, text editors, and literary critics, and aims to cover the Greek and Roman worlds up to the Latin Middle Ages, occasionally venturing into Romance philology.
