An Annual Electronic Journal

Published by the Greek Society for Ethnology


The rapid increase in websites and journals of an academic nature has encouraged the Committee of the Greek Society for Ethnology to create the electronic journal Ethnologhia On Line.

The electronic journal Ethnologhia On Line is an annual scholarly publication of the Greek Society for Ethnology, distinct from its annual printed journal Ethnologhia. Its aim is to stimulate and promote discourse in the disciplines of Anthropology and Ethnology with an emphasis on issues of theory and methodology, while also giving anthropologists and ethnologists a venue to present their work speedily.

On behalf of the Editorial Committee,

Dr Maria Koumarianou,

Guidelines concerning the submission of articles and evaluation procedures

Essays intended for publication should display a theoretical and methodological background and a broad perspective of their subject of research. In Ethnologhia On Line there is also space for articles dealing with theoretical and methodological issues regarding the disciplines of Anthropology and Ethnology themselves.

Essays submitted should be written in Greek, English or French and be accompanied by a summary of 250 words in one of the two other languages.

Essays intended for publication are to bear the signature of their authors, who are responsible for their content. Anonymous or pseudonym-bearing articles, book reviews or any other relevant texts will not be published.

Matters relating to the publication of the journal are decided by the Committee of the Greek Society for Ethnology, which selects the three Society members who make up the Editorial Committee (Please see also the regulations of the Society’s printed journal, Ethnologhia, in our website).

The publication procedure for essays submitted to the Editorial Committee is the following: The members of the Committee will read the essay submitted for publication and decide jointly, on the basis of purely scholarly criteria, whether or not the essay is to be published. If the Committee decline to publish the essay, it will be returned to its author with a written evaluation. The author can re-submit his work to the Editorial Committee of Ethnologhia On Line only after s/he has revised it in the light of the Committee’s advice. If the essay submitted is accepted by the Committee, but if the Committee offers comments and advice on, for example, bibliographic, methodological or linguistic matters, the author is invited to take them into account with a view to improving his/her work, but is under no obligation to follow them. The entire evaluation procedure leading to publication takes about two months.
