Acta Senatus

The series was developed as part of the PaRoS Project (Palingenesie der Roemischen Senatsbeschluesse), which was funded by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation with a Sofja Kovalevskaja Prize (2014) and carried out at the Institute for Legal History at the University of Muenster. The series is divided into two sections. Abteilung A. Palingenesie (“Section A. Palingenesis”) includes the volumes with an annotated palingenesis of the Roman Senate resolutions from 509 BC to 284 AD. Abteilung B: Studien und Materialien (“Section B: Studies and Materials”) collects essays, monographs, conference proceedings, and other publications on the Roman Senate and its normative, administrative, political and judicial activities. The series’ interdisciplinary approach combines different disciplines, and especially legal history, ancient history and classical philology.

Section A is in preparation.

Publishing information

Please send manuscript submissions to our acquisition managers or to the editors of the series. Submissions must be original texts (no translations) which must not be previously published. During the review process, manuscripts may not be submitted elsewhere. Monographs must be complete and fully finished. For multi-authored volumes contact us as early as possible with details of the planned contributions. In initial submissions, our publication guidelines or citation rules do not have to be strictly followed.

All submissions are subjected to peer review. The review process can result in acceptance, the recommendation of revisions or rejection of the project. You will be informed of the decision by email. We attempt to reach a decision within 3 months of the submission of the manuscript.

Your manuscript has been accepted for Acta Senatus, you have your publishing contract in your hand, and now you would like to know what happens next? Here you can download a guide which will give you an overview of the book-making process and information on the citation styles of our series. Every project is different, however, and we prefer tailor-made solutions to standardisation down to the last detail. So, if you have any questions, please write to us or give us a call.
