Editorial Policy

All manuscripts submitted to the Journal of the Hellenic Institute of Egyptology are reviewed initially by the Editors and only those papers that meet the editorial standards of the journal and fit within the aims and scope of the journal, will be sent for outside review.

Double–Blind Reviewing

The journal adheres to a rigorous double–blind reviewing policy in which the identity of both the reviewer and author are always concealed from both parties. The author’s identity will always remain concealed. The reviewer may at their own discretion opt to reveal their name to the author in their review, but our standard policy is for both identities to remain concealed.

The Editors or the Members of the Editorial Board may submit their own manuscripts for possible publication in the journal. In these cases, the peer review process will be managed by alternative Members of the Editorial Board, or (mainly) by outside partners, and the submitter will have no involvement in the decision–making process.


All parties who have made a substantive contribution to the article should be listed as authors. Principal authorship, authorship order, and other publication credits should be based solely on the relative scientific or professional contributions of the authors, regardless of their status. For example, a student should be listed as a principal author on any publication that derives from the student’s dissertation or thesis. All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in an acknowledgements section; for example, persons or entities that provided technical help, general support or writing assistance.

Funding and Conflict of Interests

All authors should acknowledge their funding for the submitted research in a consistent fashion under a separate heading. They are also required to declare any conflicting interests.

Sharing of Data

The journal is committed to facilitate transparency and reproducibility of research, therefore the authors are encouraged to either cite the data in the paper or share them via a public repository. Citations to unpublished data and personal communications cannot be used to support significant claims in the paper.

Prior Published Material

If material has been previously published, it is not generally acceptable for publication in the journal. We will not consider any research paper that has been published or is under consideration for publication elsewhere. We do not regard dissertations/theses as prior publications, but we do regard peer–reviewed and citable conference proceedings as such. However, there are rare circumstances where previously published material can be considered for publication; in this case, please contact the Executive Editor in Chief.

Academic Misconduct

The journal takes a serious stance against any misconduct in publication, such as plagiarism, copyright infringement, fabrication, falsification, inappropriate authorship, duplicate submission, or overlapping publication. Where such misconduct takes place, we reserve the right to take action including, but not limited to: publishing an erratum or corrigendum; retracting the article; taking up the matter with relevant academic bodies or societies; taking appropriate legal action.
