Open Access Journal: Electronic Journal of Mithraic Studies

 [First posted in AWOL 31 December 2010. Updated 13 September 2013]

Electronic Journal of Mithraic Studies
The Electronic Journal of Mithraic Studies (EJMS) is a revival of the Journal of Mithraic Studies edited by Dr. Richard Gordon. It is a place where researchers on Roman Mithraism can publish the product of their research and make it freely available for other interested people. The journal concerns all aspects of the mysteries of Mithras, including history, archaeology, theology, sociology, others. Its span includes related religions and cults such as Persian Zoroastrianism and other cults in the Roman Empire. The EJMS is based at the University of Huelva, Spain, and is managed by an Editorial Board composed of scholars of Mithraism and Roman Religion with international projection. A more complete description is included in our formal baseline document.

The material published in the EJMS includes papers and archaeological reports. Accepted languages are English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian, Dutch and Flemish. The EJMS follows an "open yearly volumes" approach suitable for Internet publication which consists on gradually building its volumes during the year, while keeping currently collected material accessible all the time. The EJMS has now opened Volume I for the year 2000 and asks for your participation.

Submitted material is subject to referee by the Editorial Board or external reviewers appointed by th Editorial Board. Electronic submission can be performed by sending the documents as email attachments to antonio.grilo@inov.pt. The first page of the document should include the title of the work, complete name of the authors, their affiliation, name of contact author and respective email address. Submitted papers should preferably be Word 97 or compatible documents conforming to the parameters defined in the EJMS stylesheet.
