Begun as a print journal in 1959, Greek, Roman, and Byzantine Studies (GRBS) is now a quarterly online, open access, scholarly journal "devoted to the culture and history of Greece from Antiquity to the Renaissance." The journal publishes "significant research articles ...on all aspects of the Hellenic world from prehistoric antiquity through the Greek, Roman, and Byzantine periods, including studies of modern classical scholarship." Submissions of 10,000 words (including notes) or less are generally considered.
The most recent issue (Volume 56, Number 3, 2016), features the articles: "Weak at the Knees: Two Iliadic Formulae," "Reading the Proemium of Plato’s Theaetetus: Euclides in Action," "The Authenticity of the Law about Nomothesia inserted in Demosthenes Against Timokrates, 20–23," "Τετραδισταί in a Funerary Inscription from Roman Thessaloniki," "The patria of Claudianus (FGrHist 282)," "Hesychius of Jerusalem, Ecclesiastical History (CPG 6582)," "The Geometric Mosaics at Khirbat Mar Elyas: A Comparative Study," and "Ascending the Ladder: Editio Princeps of Four Poems on the Ladder of John Klimakos (Bodleian Baroccianus 141)." This is an important, substantive title that is openly available to all classical scholars, and librarians should make sure it's in your discovery systems.
