Descrição EN: 

Humanitas is the oldest scholarly journal published in Portugal devoted to Greek, Latin and Renaissance Classical Studies, although it welcomes contributions from other interfacing fields of study (History, Archaeology, Philosophy, Religion, Art, Rhetoric, Reception of the Classics, among others). Owned by the Instituto de Estudos Clássicos of the Faculdade de Letras, University of Coimbra, Humanitas has been published regularly since its inception in 1947. The journal is aimed at researchers and scholars, both Portuguese and international. Contributions in Portuguese (the language of the Lusophone world), as well as in English, Spanish, Italian and French are welcome. Given its growing internationalization, the journal privileges the publication of articles in English. Contributions can be of two types: a) original specialized articles constituting relevant approaches capable of stimulating the advancement of research in their respective areas; b) review articles of works published during the 2 years preceding the submission. Type a) contributions are subject to a blind peer review process by international referees chosen on the basis of their expertise in the relevant scientific areas. Responsibility for publication of type b) contributions rests with the journal’s Board of Editors and Advisory Board. This journal does not accept papers submitted for publication in other periodicals or books. Upon submission of their manuscripts, all authors must declare on their honour that they comply with this rule.
Humanitas is indexed by the Web of Science (Thomson Reuters/ESCI)LatindexDialnetEuropean Reference Index for the Humanities and Social Sciences (ERIH PLUS), Scientific Journal Impact FactorDirectory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ)EBSCO and BIBP (Bibliographic Information Base in Patristics).
