About the Acta

The Society's journal has been published, generally at two-year intervals, since 1958. The papers included have mostly (but not exclusively) been those presented at the corresponding congresses. It has grown from 37 pages in A5 format for the first volume, to 619 pages of A4 size in 2020; its scope includes all types of ceramic material (excluding building material) attributable to the Roman period or immediately before, and all parts of the world where Roman pottery has been found. It thus constitutes an important resource for this field of study.

For author guidelines and details of how to submit a paper, see the associated page Submissions. Accepted languages are English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. Papers are peer-reviewed prior to acceptance.

The journal is now published simultaneously in print and in digital form. Earlier volumes are also in the process of being digitized.
