Studia Antiqua

Call for Papers 2021


Fellow scholars,

We are excited to issue the call for papers for the Spring 2021 issue of Studia Antiqua—the twenty-year anniversary of the journal! We invite submissions pertaining to the ancient Near East or Mediterranean, including those related to the Hebrew Bible, New Testament, or Classical Studies. We hope to publish between seven to ten research papers and two to three book reviews in the 2021 issue.

We will be accepting submissions beginning now through Friday, January 15, 2021. Only completed papers or book reviews will be considered this year.

If your paper is accepted for publication, you will be notified before the end of March 2021. Please note that the final publication of an accepted paper is contingent upon your completion of recommended revisions, and that initial acceptances may be rescinded if you fail to complete such revisions in a reasonable timeframe.

If you hope to pursue graduate work in academia, we highly encourage you to pursue publishing opportunities like Studia Antiqua. Not only will you gain experience with the peer-review and editing process in a low-stakes environment, but a polished, published paper is a valuable resource to put on a CV or include as a writing sample in a graduate school application.

Through the BYU ScholarsArchive system, papers published in Studia Antiqua are made available to databases and library systems around the world. Our articles average 15–20 downloads per month from locations across the US and beyond, with some papers reaching 100–150 downloads per month.

If you are interested in submitting a research paper or a book review, email it as a Microsoft Word document to studia_antiqua@byu.edu. For research papers, please include an abstract (80–150 words). Submission guidelines are permanently posted at studiaantiqua.byu.edu/submission-guidelines.

We look forward to your submissions!
