Article Critique and/or Response

Article critiques/responses will be assessed for publication by the editors and will not be subject to peer-review. Critiques and responses are intended to allow readers and authors to engage in constructive and informative debate and discussion. In all cases of critique, the initial authors will be given the opportunity to respond in full (which will also be published in the same journal volume). A critique may only address the scientific and scholarly attributes of the original research and is strictly not to be used as a platform for personal attack in any way. It is at the sole discretion of the editorial board whether a critique of a published article will be included for publication. In the event that the editorial board can not reach an agreement as to whether a critique should be published (based solely on academic merit of the critique), the Editor-in-chief can make an executive decision. Article critiques and/or responses are text only (2000 word limit) and should not contain any figures or tables. A limit of 20 references is recommended.

Book Reviews

Book reviews (invited or submitted) give authors the opportunity to review current publications in Egyptology. Book reviews will not be peer-reviewed, although will be assessed for publication by the Editorial Board. Book reviews are text only  (c. 1000 words) and should not contain any figures or tables. References should be included if deemed necessary.

Letter

A letter allows an author to air thoughts, discussion topics, or ‘food-for-thought’ to the wider academic community. While a ‘freer’ format is intended to facilitate community discussion and may potentially prove academically controversial in their content, Letters must still adhere to strict scientific principles and must be on topics in keeping with the mission statement and scope of the journal. Letters will not be peer-reviewed, but will be assessed for publication by the Editorial Board. Letters are text only and limited to 1000 words. A limit of 5 references is recommended.

Project Reports

Project reports give researchers the opportunity to present their preliminary findings based on ongoing research. Project reports may include, but are not limited to, current and recent fieldwork (e.g. excavations, surveys), museum-based research, laboratory-based research, and archival research.

Project reports will not be blind peer-reviewed, but contributions will be assessed for publication by a dedicated Section Editor and member(s) of the Editorial Board. Project reports are intended to be brief, c. 2000 words, although authors are encouraged to discuss the possibility of a longer submissions with the Editor. There is no restriction on the number of figures or tables included. A limit of 15 references is recommended.

Thesis Abstract

Thesis abstracts give recently graduated doctoral researchers the opportunity to share a brief overview of their doctoral research with a wider academic audience. Thesis abstracts will not be peer-reviewed and will only be accepted after the doctorate has been awarded. Only doctoral research abstracts will be published, i.e. PhD/DPhil only, not BA/Hons/MA/MSc. Abstracts are text only (500 word limit) and should not contain any figures, tables or references.
