Instructions for authors

During the Covid-19 crisis we understand that some authors may not have access to equipment to enable electronic return of a scanned, signed Author Publishing Agreement. If this applies to you, please see these FAQs. If you are able, please return the full Author Publishing Agreement as normal.

Traditio is published once a year, by Cambridge University Press. Articles published have included critical editions of Greek and Latin texts, catalogues of manuscripts, and original studies dealing with the ancient world, early Christianity, and aspects of the Middle Ages. Articles that deal with material after A.D. 1500 are not accepted.

The deadline for submitting manuscripts is early December of each year. Final decisions on acceptance are made at a meeting of the Editorial Board, which takes place each year in late March. Copies of the annual volume are normally mailed out in December of each year.

Manuscripts may be sent to:
