About the Journal

The Bulletin of the Institute of Classical Studies (BICS) publishes world-wide research in the whole range of Classical Studies. As well as established international scholars, BICS has always sought contributions by younger scholars. The journal is published annually in two issues, providing essential reading for the Classics community world-wide.

BICS is published in partnership with The Institute of Classical Studies, a national and international research institute in the languages, literature, history, art, archaeology and philosophy of the ancient Greek and Roman worlds. It is a member Institute of the University of London's School of Advanced Study, which combines the advantages of a graduate school with those of a centre for postdoctoral research and scholarship in many aspects of the Humanities.
