Future of Babylonia

Babylonia's transition to Open Access in 2021 will be accompanied by a change of website, as well as a modernization of the process for submitting and reviewing articles. Instead of sending their contributions to the editors by email, authors will submit their articles directly on our website. They will then be able to check the status of their articles throughout the editing process (reviewing, proofreading, layout, etc.) by logging into their account. We will, however, not switch to a system of anonymous peer reviewing: our reviewers will be members of Babylonia's editorial board, and feedback will continue to be both considerate and constructive. The current Babylonia site will be closed once all archives have been transferred to the new website. There you will have unlimited access to all our issues from 1991 to the present day.
