Editorial Policy
The Classical Outlook is a journal for teachers at all levels of instruction.  It seeks to engage its readers with the latest thinking in teaching and learning, to stimulate discussion about developments and debates in classical studies, and to center teaching spaces as important sites of classical reception.

Review Time
Editorial decisions about submissions will be made as promptly as possible, typically within 2-3 months.

Submission Guidelines, General
The Classical Outlook does not review submissions that have been published elsewhere or that are being evaluated for publication elsewhere. In addition, during the time the submission is being reviewed by CO, it may not be submitted elsewhere. If you submit your work to CO, you acknowledge that you are complying with these policies.

Submissions Guidelines for Articles
Manuscripts should be addressed to the Editor, Philip Walsh, and emailed as a Word document attachment to Manuscripts should be in general conformity with stylistic guidelines detailed in The Chicago Manual of Style, 17th ed. (Chicago, 2017). Documentation, where necessary, may be in the form of parenthetical citations within the text itself, keyed to a list of References at the end. Parenthetical citations should include, in the case of modern works, the author’s last name and page number(s), and, in the case of ancient works, the author’s name and title, as abbreviated in the Oxford Classical Dictionary, 4th ed., with book and section references in Arabic numerals. End notes are accepted. Classics journals and other works cited should be spelled out in full. Articles that require the printing of Greek are accepted. Submissions are evaluated anonymously by at least two anonymous referees. To ensure anonymity, authorship and affiliation should only appear in an accompanying email or cover letter to the Editor, not in the manuscript itself. Authors of accepted articles will be expected to format their final copy according to a style sheet to be provided.
