INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS

Scope and policy

Byzantion Nea Hellás is yearly journal of Greek, Byzantine and Neohellenic studies, founded in 1970. It publishes original scientific research articles pertaining to the domain of Greek studies, in Spanish, Portuguese, French, and English.

The evaluation of the originality and scientific quality of the articles is submitted to a process of arbitration, which is conducted by at least two members of the International Consultant Committee.

The journal also includes sections on Documents, Reviews, and News.

The audience of the journal is obviously composed by scholars, researchers, professors who work in the field of the three main areas of Greek culture, as well as students of these topics, and the general public interested in some aspect(s) of Greek culture.
