Open Access Journal: Amphora: An Ancient World Journal

Amphora: An Ancient World Journal
Amphora: an Ancient World Journal established itself in 2017 as an independent, open-access journal affiliated with the University of Melbourne Graduate Student Association. Prior to this, and operating since 2012, the journal was a regular issue of the Melbourne Historical Journal, and was known as The Amphora Issue: An Ancient World Journal.
Amphora is a peer-reviewed journal which is open to new approaches and aims to present original research to a wide readership. The journal includes feature articles, refereed articles, book reviews and feature artworks. We welcome contributions from researchers working in a diverse range of fields, including Classical Studies, Ancient History, Reception Studies, Digital Humanities, Egyptology and Archaeology (including pre-historical and historical periods), with a focus on the ancient Mediterranean and the Near East.

Origins
The name of this publication derives from the AMPHORA(E) conferences which have been supporting Australian and New Zealand postgraduate research in Ancient World Studies since 2007. Amphora originated as a publication of conference proceedings; in recent years, the journal has developed into an annual peer-reviewed publication. Each issue includes feature articles from two established scholars who are invited to address our annual theme. Peer-reviewed articles can address any topic, however, we also welcome additional contributions that engage with our theme.
