The Journal of Mediterranean Studies is an interdisciplinary journal published twice yearly. It is specifically aimed at scholars whose professional academic interests are concerned with Mediterranean societies and cultures within the fields of social Anthropology, History, Classics, Archeology, Popular Art and Literature. The journal intends to provide a forum whereby scholars working in academically and geographical contiguous areas can explore, and be exposed to, parallel and related theoretical issues. It sets out to establish a framework for interdisciplinary discussion, particularly important when studying Mediterranean societies and cultures, and to encourage dialogue between academics based in North American and Northern European Universities and in Mediterranean ones.
The journal series consists of special issues devoted to particular topics/disciplines, and general issues consisting of articles submitted for publication. Some issues also contain a Discussion Section where particularly notable or theoretically innovative publications are extensively reviewed and placed within the overall context of the author's work. To encourage dialogue, the author is given the opportunity to reply to the reviewer's comments in the same issue. The primary language of publication is English, but consideration will be given to the inclusion of a restricted number of articles in French and Italian. Particularly notable articles submitted in other languages may also be translated into English.
The Journal of Mediterranean Studies welcomes the submission of papers dealing with the history, cultures and societies of the Mediterranean world. All papers are referred by specialists in the field.

Notes for Contributors
JOURNAL OF MEDITERRANEAN STUDIES
HISTORY, CULTURE AND SOCIETY IN THE MEDITERRANEAN WORLD
Published Twice Yearly ISSN: 1016-3476
The JOURNAL OF MEDITERRANEAN STUDIES welcomes the submission of papers of up to 8,000 words on any branch of Mediterranean Studies that deals with the history, cultures and societies that border the Mediterranean Sea. This includes social anthropology, archaeology, history, literature, popular art, etc. Three copies of papers should be submitted. Submissions are considered for publication on the understanding that the author offers JMS an exclusive option to publish and that the paper is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. It is the responsibility of the author to obtain permission for using any previously published material. Requests for permission to reproduce articles or parts of articles from JMS should be directed to the General Editor of the Journal. Permission is not normally granted until one year has elapsed since the date of publication in JMS, although
permission to translate into other languages is normally granted immediately.
To facilitate the efficient consideration and handling of papers the following considerations should be observed:
In the first instance, manuscripts should be emailed to the Chairman, Editorial Working Group (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Administrator, Journal of
Mediterranean Studies (email@example.com). In addition any manuscripts containing maps, diagrams and photographs should be sent in three (3) hard copies and diskette to Ms. Tita Bonnici, Malta University Publishers Ltd., University Campus, Msida MSD2080 Malta.
Manuscripts should be typed double-lined on A4 paper with ample margins. Notes and references should also be double spaced on separate pages at the end of the article. Acknowledgements, credits, etc. should form an asterisked unnumbered note at the end of the text. Separate sections in articles should have a text sub-title or subheading not a number.
Bibliographic references should be cited in the text by the author’s last name, date of publication and page, e.g. (Campbell 1964:106), or if the author’s name is mentioned
in the text by the date and page reference only e.g. (1964:106). Entries in the references (i.e. bibliography) should be in alphabetical order of authors and should
include the following: name and initials of author(s), date, title and (for books) place of publication, name of publisher.
For articles the following should be included in the
following order: name of journal in full (or abbreviated according to the World List of Scientific Periodicals), volume number (Arabic numbers to be used throughout) and pagination. Examples are:
Campbell, J.K. 1964. Honour, family and patronage, a study of the institutions and moral values in a Greek mountain community. Oxford: Claredon Press.
Herzefeld, M. 1984. The Horns of the Mediterraneanist dilemma. American Ehtnologist 11:439-454.
Articles or chapters in collective works edited by an individual should be entered in the following way:
Caro Baroja, J. 1963. The city and the country. Reflections on some ancient common places. In Mediterranean Countrymen (ed.) J. Pitt-Rivers, Paris:Mouton 27-40.
To avoid confusion paragraphs must be indented rather than separated by a blank line.
Single quotation marks should be used for quotations.
Quotations of more than two sentences should be indented.
‘Foreign ‘ words, i.e. words in a language other that being used as the main language of the article should be italicised or underlined (except proper names).
Quotations in language of the article are accepted as long as they are germane to the argument. In the case of a script other than Latin script (e.g. Greek, Arabic), an accompanying translation must be submitted, side by side.
Non Latin texts must be typed and clearly legible to avoid confusion at the printers.
Tables, figures and other illustrations including photographs should be on separate sheets, numbered and titled.
Maps, diagrams and text figures must be drawn in black waterproof ink and printed double size on glossy paper.
Each article should contain an abstract of 100-150 words.
Page proof of articles will be sent to authors, who must return them before the date indicated. When proofs are not received in time the Editor’s own corrected proofs will
be sent to the printers. Alterations at proof stage are strongly discouraged and will only be accepted at the discretion of the General Editor.
Authors receive 25 free offprints of articles and one copy of the journal. Additional copies of offprints can be supplied at cost price and must be ordered and paid for when the corrected proofs are returned. Authors also have the right to purchase copies of the volume in which their article appears at half the current subscription price.
JMS also accepts the submission of articles on diskette, which must also be accompanied by three copies of the manuscript. Prefer Apple Mac format but accept
