Kritische Zeitschrift für die gesamte Klassische Altertumswissenschaft

As a critical journal for the entire field of classical studies, GNOMON fosters the connection between the various disciplines of classical studies. It thus occupies a special position among review instruments and offers the possibility of finding out about important research and publications also in the neighboring fields of one's own discipline. The reviews in GNOMON are addressed to an international audience coming from all subfields of classical studies. The languages of publication in the GNOMON are: German, English, French, Italian, and Latin.

Review guidelines
Reviews are generally by invitation of the editors only. Please direct inquiries to .

Every review in the GNOMON should serve the purpose of giving a clear picture of the contents of the book, comprehensible even to those who have not read the book themselves and do not know the problem treated from their own experience. The scientific character of the review will often require the criticism of particular aspects of the work under review; the merely specific, however, should not predominate and should not be used so much for its own sake as to illustrate the method and result of the book. All that is specific should be offered separately from that which is generally significant, in a clear outline. The GNOMON attaches importance to an easily readable, linguistically accurate presentation. Your own productive and further reflections on the subject of the reviewed work are highly welcome.
