Author Guidelines

Recent articles can be consulted for the journal's format and conventions; a Word template with insructions can be downloaded and used. Only in unusual cases can submissions longer than ca. 10,000 words (including notes) be considered. For abbreviations, GRBS follows the usage described in the American Journal of Archaeology, and secondarily that of L'Année philologique; for ancient and Byzantine authors and titles, the practice of the Oxford Classical Dictionary 4th ed. (Oxford 2012) xxvii-liii, A Patristic Greek Lexicon ed. G. W. H. Lampe (Oxford 1961) xi-xlv, and the Oxford Dictionary of Byzantium (Oxford 1991) I xx-xlv; references to papyri should conform to the abbreviations listed in the Checklist of Editions. Contributors are requested to observe these usages in preparing their submissions.
