Preparation of the text

Only one font (Times New Roman, Unicode) is to be used, both for the text of the article (12 point, line spacing 14) and for the notes (10 point, line spacing 12). No other font can be used; texts and terms originally in other fonts should be converted to Times New Roman, unless considered absolutely necessary.

The quotation system is of the type “Author – date” (the “Harvard” system). In the text and notes the names of authors are given in small capitals followed by the year of publication: e.g. Brelich 1976.

At the end of the article there should be a complete bibliography, including any abbreviations, which should be spelled out. The following examples cover the most common cases:

Brelich 1976 = A. Brelich, “Tre note”, in P. Xella (ed.), Magia. Studi di storia delle religioni in memoria di Raffaela Garosi, Roma 1976: 103-110.
Caquot – Sznycer – Herdner 1974 = A. Caquot – M. Sznycer – A. Herdner, Textes ougaritiques, I – Mythes et légendes (LAPO 14), Paris 1974.
DDD = K. van der Toorn – B. Becking – P. W. van der Horst (eds.), Dictionary of Deities and Demons in the Bible, Leiden 19992.
Lambert 1997 = W. G. Lambert, “Procession to the Akîtu House”, Revue d’Assyriologie 91, 1997: 49-80.
Otten 1976-80 = H. Otten, “Illujanka”, in RlA 5, Berlin 1976-1980: 60-61.

Any illustrations (photographs and/or drawings), in black and white only, are to be sent in digital format of good quality and with high resolution. The images should be supplied with captions, with exact bibliographical references and where necessary with copyright permissions obtained by the author of the article.

For further details (titles, legends, position of notes, additional criteria for citing material, etc.) the Assistant Editor may be consulted. It is possible to use a template (see “Documents for authors”).
