Journal of Ancient Civilizations (JAC)


The JOURNAL OF ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS (JAC; ISSN: 1004-9371) is published annually by the Institute for the History of Ancient Civilizations.

JAC provides a forum for the discussion of various aspects of the cultural and historical processes in the Ancient Near Eastern and Mediterranean world, encompassing studies of individual civilizations as well as common elements, contacts and interactions among them (in such traditional fields as Assyriology, Classics, Egyptology, Hittitology, and Sinology among others). JAC aims at publishing the work of international scholars while also providing a showcase for the finest Chinese scholarship, and so welcomes articles dealing with history, philology, art, archaeology and linguistics which are intended to illuminate the material culture and society of the ancient Near East, the Mediterranean region, and ancient China. Articles discussing other cultures will be considered for publication only if they are clearly relevant to the ancient Mediterranean world, the Near East and China. Information about new discoveries and current scholarly events is also welcome. Publishers are encouraged to send articles or review copies of books in relevant fields.

We owe our peer reviewers, experts in the specific fields from all over the world, a deep debt of gratitude for their contribution to JAC. A list of the peer reviewers will be published in the printed version of JAC as well as here on the webpage from time to time.

If you want to submit an article to JAC, we are pleased to offer you guidelines as well as a style sheet for download.

All communications, manuscripts, disks and books for review should be sent to the Editor in Chief, Prof. Dr. Qiang Zhang, or the Chief Executive Director, Prof. Dr. Sven Günther, M.A.
