INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS


Manuscript Submission
Authors are asked to submit manuscripts sending one hard copy of your manuscript and a CD containing all relevant electronic files to the editorial office (address below). Detailed instructions are available below. Initial submissions may be sent via mail in either Word or PDF format. Please note that if your manuscript contains special characters, PDF is desirable as it will ensure that these special characters appear correctly. Upon acceptance, a final version in Word will be required for copyediting and production.
Manuscripts submitted to the Board are reviewed by appropriate experts without exception. While Studi Etruschi Advisory Board members often serve as reviewers, manuscripts are also screened by outside experts. Most submissions are read by two scholars in addition to the Editor-in-Chief.
In most cases, the time from submission to decision for articles submitted is 2-4 months.
Submissions should not exceed 20,000 words, including abstracts, article body, works cited, notes, and figure captions.

Statement of Policy
In peer review, we consider originality of material and interpretation, clarity of thought, and interest of readers, as well as sources and style.

Manuscript Format and Style
As of October 1, 2015, peer review for SE will use a double-blind process. Authors are therefore asked to remove as many self-identifying features from their submitted manuscripts as possible, e.g., "by [Author Name]", obvious citations of the author's own work, etc.
Authors are responsible for securing all necessary permissions for photographs or other copyrighted illustrations in their articles.
Submitted manuscripts should be in Italian, good English, French or German.

Footnotes
Citations must be supplied as footnotes rather than endnotes, and citation form must follow the Guidelines (below).
Notes should be formatted as follows
Journal article:
Doe 2010, pp. 5-10.

Book:
Doe 2010, pp. 1-10.

Multiple References to the Same Work or Author
Doe 2010a, 2010b, 2011, 2012.

Formatting Electronic Files
Acceptable Formats for Initial Submissions
• Microsoft Word (.doc) any recent version
• PDF (.pdf)

If your manuscript is in Word and contains special characters, the characters may become corrupted during the conversion to a PDF document for peer review. Therefore, please review the final PDF carefully before you finish the submission process. If your characters have become corrupted, please create your own PDF of the manuscript (by scanning, if necessary) and submit that PDF, rather than the Word file, for peer review.
Word documents should be submitted as a single file. Authors should submit figures as separate files, in TIFF (.tif) or EPS (.eps), not GIF (.gif) or JPEG (.jpg), format.
Please note that if your manuscript is accepted, you will be asked to submit high-resolution hard copies of all figures for production purposes, as not all digital art files are usable.
In addition to the main manuscript file, submit your cover letter as a separate file in the same format as your main file. If you used any revision or editorial tracking tools in your word-processing program, be sure the submitted version of your manuscript does not contain tracked changes.

Revised and Final Versions of Manuscript
When submitting a revised manuscript, please include your responses to the reviewers’ comments as part of the cover letter file. When submitting a revised manuscript with figures, include all figures, even if they have not changed since the previous version.
The final version of your manuscript must be submitted in Word (.doc) because your keystrokes will be used in copyediting and typesetting; a PDF does not contain usable character data and is thus not adequate. To ensure that special characters are typeset correctly, it is helpful if you also submit your own PDF of the final version manuscript, in addition to the Word file.
