Two issues a year, in April and October, plus one issue of the New Surveys in the Classics supplement.Greece & Rome is a journal which delivers scholarly research to a wider audience. It showcases original and informative articles on ancient history, literature, art, archaeology, religion, philosophy, and reception of the ancient world. Although its content reflects current research and its contributors include leading figures in the field, undergraduates and general readers who wish to be kept informed of current thinking will also find it engaging and accessible, as well as professional scholars in Classics and in other disciplines. With the wider audience in mind all Greek and Latin quotations are translated.

New Surveys in the Classics

The New Surveys in the Classics are a series of short books dedicated to key themes and concepts in the classical world. They deal with a wide range of topics, from key figures like Homer and Virgil, to subjects such as Greek tragedy, thought and science, women, slavery, Roman art, and historians. A New Survey is published annually and included as a supplement to any subscription of Greece and Rome.

The latest in the series of New Surveys in the Classics is Early Greek Hexameter Poetry by Peter Gainsford. It is described as "...the first book to give an introduction to all genres of early Greek hexameter poetry; not only heroic legend and the origins of the gods, but also wisdom literature, genealogy, oracles, and epigraphy."

The Journal of Classics Teaching stands in a long line of previous journals, reviews, newsletters and bulletins which have investigated, reported and evaluated the teaching of classical subjects in schools and universities in the UK and abroad.  JCT has its origins inLatin Teaching, the journal of the Association for the Reform of Latin Teaching (now Association for Latin Teaching), developing from there through Didaskalos, the journal of the Joint Association of Classical Teachers, and HesperiamThe JACT Review and The JACT Bulletin. JCT aims to describe events and practices in classics teaching which are much more than just of interest to teachers in the primary, secondary and tertiary sectors. We aim to make it a journal which is influential through the discussion and dissemination of successful pedagogical approaches, and in which arguments are grounded in hard data and observed phenomena in and out of the classics classroom. We invite contributors from abroad as well as from the UK, as we believe that the best ideas about the teaching of classical subjects flourish as a result of the cross-fertilisation of experience from different educational programmes across the world. We look for pieces which reflect the experiences of teachers at all levels. Finally, we continue to report on significant events in the world of classics teaching: JCT is still the teachers’  ‘parish noticeboard’ and reviews of books and other resources which can be used in the classroom, including ICT and film, continue to appear.

Since 2015 JCT has become a fully online, open-access journal. As such, JCT is able to include hyperlinks to other sites, including those of individual authors’, as well as including images in full colour, and has the capacity to embed video and other media. This exciting development means that authors may easily provide links to demonstrate activities or show documentation as part of an article. You can access JCT online here, and also sign up to receive content alerts via Cambridge Core.

The Association for Latin Teaching has kindly agreed to host pdfs of past issues on its website (a work currently under progress). There is also a limited backstock of hard copy issues as published by JACT available to purchase via the shop.

Whether you are a sixth-former, discovering the wonders of classics for the first time and keen to find out things about the Greeks and the Romans that your teachers don't tell you, or a teacher, eager to learn what you were never taught yourself, whether you look to Classics to provide intellectual stimulation to distract you from the world of work, or are in search of juicy fodder as you browse the pastures of retirement, Omnibus is the magazine for you.

Published twice a year, in March and September, its 32 full-colour pages offer fresh insights into the greatest classical texts, explore from new angles the enduring puzzles of ancient history, visit the fundamental areas of philosophical enquiry in antiquity, and bring you news and views from the world of classical archaeology and art. Designed to be both accessible and beautiful, Omnibus earns its place both on the desk and on the coffee-table.
