The title of the article should be centered at the top of the title page, with the abstract below. The abstract should be no longer than 200 words and should outline the problems discussed, methodology, and conclusions.
Paragraphs should be left justified and unindented. Use a double return after each paragraph. All headings should be typed on a separate line, not run in with the text. Headings should be labeled <A>, <B>, or <C>. C-level subheads should be avoided whenever possible.
The AJA does not use in-text citations, except for references to primary ancient sources. Notes should be formatted as endnotes, numbered in one series, and double-spaced. A note should not exceed 200 words. See also Bibliographic References and Footnotes. Acknowledgments should not be included in an initial submission, as this may compromise anonymity. In a revised submission, acknowledgments should be placed immediately before the first note and referenced by an asterisk at the end of the abstract.
Authors should set Greek text in New Athena Unicode, a public-domain Greek font available at http://apagreekkeys.org/NAUdownload.html.
Sources cited in the text must appear at the end of the manuscript with full bibliographic information according to AJA guidelines.
Tables should provide new information, not duplicate text, and should be numbered consecutively. All sections of tables should be double-spaced. A short caption should be placed above each table. Long tables are best presented on a maximum of one published page, which equates to 35–40 one-line rows in MS Word (fewer if there are several table footnotes). Complex tables are best submitted as figures. AJA tables do not contain internal rule lines, and a dash is used in cells to indicate no data or information is available. Authors should refer to past issues of the journal for examples of table format. The AJA reserves the right to ask for revisions to tables to accord with these guidelines.
