Ghost-writing Prevention


PEITHO is deeply committed to the policy of academic honesty and fairness. When submitting their paper for publication to this journal, the author(s) must clearly specify the following:

  • the name(s) of the author(s),
  • the affiliation,
  • the financing of the submission and the involvement of any institution(s) that covered the research (if applicable).


Reviewing Procedure


Every paper submitted for publication to PEITHO is subject to the following review procedure :

  1. Each submission is evaluated by the Editor-in-Chief and if the basic requirements are met, the submission is sent to review.
  2. Each submission is evaluated by at least one independent referee affiliated in an institution other than that of the Editor-in-Chief.
  3. All submissions are subject to a double-blind peer review procedure so that neither the author nor the referee know each other’s identities.
  4. The review concludes with a definite decision whether the submission is to be accepted for publication or rejected.


Author Guidelines

PEITHO welcomes contributions in all fields of ancient philosophy and thought. A contribution to PEITHO may be an article (up to 40 pp.), a discussion (up to 15 pp.) or a review (up to 10 pp.).

Submissions should be sent via e-mail to the following address:

Contributions should be written in English, French, German, Italian, Latin or Polish. Non-native speakers are expected to have their contribution checked by a native speaker of the language chosen.

All submissions should be typed in 12-pt font, single-spaced with wide margins. Footnotes should be placed at the foot of the page, also single-spaced and consecutively numbered.
