1. Text files should be sent by email (plataforma OSJ - Impactum journals.uc.pt) in Word format (.doc or .docx). Pdf is not accepted.
2. Conimbriga publishes original texts in Portuguese, Spanish, English, French, and Italian.
3. Authors are asked to follow the spelling and grammar rules specific to each language, particularly those concerning the use of uppercase letters; spacing after punctuation marks; use of first-line indentations at the beginning of a paragraph, without double spacing it from the previous paragraph; and the use of italics for words written in a language other than the text’s primary one.
4. The text must be preceded by a cover page stating the author's name, institutional affiliation, email, ORCID, article title, abstract (ten lines maximum) and keywords (three to five) in the original language and in English (or in Portuguese and English when they are not the text's languages).
5. The use of footnotes is discouraged. However, if they are absolutely necessary, they should be numbered continuously. The note number should be placed in superscript and spaced after its corresponding word.
6. The list of references cited should be placed at the end of the text. It should be organized alphabetically by the authors’ surnames (in uppercase letters) and chronologically within each author. If two texts should share the same author and date, a distinction is made by adding a lowercase letter (1984, 1984a, 1984b ...).
7. Remember that all authors should be cited by surname (ex.: José Leite de Vasconcelos as VASCONCELOS, José Leite) except for Spanish authors, who are listed by second surname (ex.: José María Bláquez Martínez as BLÁZQUEZ MARTÍNEZ, José María).
8. Titles of books and journal names should be italicized and followed by volume number in Arabic numerals, year of issue, and corresponding pages without commas (ex.: Conimbriga 36 1997 15-22).
9. Journals can be identified by the acronyms registered in the Année Philologique. Therefore, when useful, the reference list can be preceded by a table of abbreviations. Where possible, the location of publication (dispensable in the case of journals) should be translated to the article’s language. In general, there is no need to name the publishing house.
10. Collective books are listed by the surname of their editor or coordinator.
11. For ease of reference, it is advised to write the first author's name in full instead of using an acronym.
12. It is suggested that in-text reference citations, within parentheses, only mention the author's last name, the year of publishing, and the relevant page(s) (when applicable).
13. Images should be sent as .jpg or .tiff files with a resolution of at least 400 dpi. They will be displayed at the end of the text and identified as EST. I, II ..., or FIG. 1, 2 ... Their possible dimensions are as follows: 7.5 x 11, 11 x 17, 17 x 24 or 34 x 24 cm. The elements within each image can be distinguished by Arabic numerals. Photographs are also identified by Arabic numerals (PHOTO 1, 2, 3 ...). The ideal sizes for photographs to be published are 11 x 7.5 or 11 x 17 cm, depending on the journal’s text area.
14. Despite possible mentions within the text, authors are advised to label images to make their contents easier to understand.
15. The journal's size is 17 x 24 cm, with a useful text area of 11 x 17 cm. Images that cannot be published in their real size are usually reduced. Therefore, it is essential to include a graphic scale and indicate the N (North) in plans and photographs.
16. Conimbriga publishes images in black and white or grayscale.
17. The Editorial Board may request a reduction of the number of images.
18. It is assumed that authors have carefully reviewed their texts. Editors will only check for formatting errors.
19. It is the author’s responsibility to review the first proofs within ten working days.
20. Only typographical errors can be corrected. Significant changes are only accepted in truly exceptional circumstances.
21. Collaborators will not be remunerated. Nevertheless, the Board will send in return a printed copy of the journal and a .pdf file of the article.
22. The Board reserves the right to refuse publishing texts of low scientific quality or featuring low quality images. These decisions will always be justified. The refusal does not apply to the right of reply, as established in the Press Law.
23. All texts will be submitted for Peer Review.
24. Texts that do not comply with the present Rules will not be accepted.
