Diogenes

Launched in January 2014, Diogenes (ISSN 2054-6696) is a peer-review and open-access journal edited by the postgraduate students at the Centre for Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies, University of Birmingham. This collaboration of postgraduate students aims at providing a venue at which postgraduate students can further develop their research ideas and communicate them to a general audience. The unique combination of research interests at the Centre brings together the often separate fields of Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies. We look forward to any article that actively engages with any of these fields, from universities in the UK and abroad. It is published twice a year: in April and October.

    1. Hello. Thanks for your interest in Diogenes. We still welcome submissions now, but not for the April issue. All submissions must pass the peer-review process before publication. If you submit an article before August, it might make it to the issue to be published in October.
