Polis was founded in 1977 to provide a forum for publication to scholars specializing in what was then a neglected sub-field – ancient Greek political thought. Over the years Polis evolved into a fully-fledged academic journal that publishes material of interest to those who study ancient Greek political thought broadly understood, whether they do so as classicists, ancient historians, philosophers, or political scientists. Polis also welcomes articles on the reception of ancient political thought in Europe, America, or elsewhere.
Since its inception the journal speaks for no particular perspective or methodology and it is devoted to the publication of original papers, even though extensive literature reviews, critiques of contemporary research and review essays are also included.
All submissions are sent to two referees and normally an editorial decision is taken within 3 months from the time of submission. While Polis primarily features contributions written in English, submissions in French and German are also welcome.
The views and opinions expressed in peer-reviewed articles published in Polis are those of the authors and do not reflect the position of Journal.
Polis appears in two issues per annual volume (summer and winter).
