1. Collection guiderlines

The collection of appendices to the 'Veleia' journal is divided into two series (Maior y Minor) and into an Acta that publicises research works on antiquities. The work it includes must always be from original research and not have been published before.

Since their creation in 1985 and 1991 respectively, the first two ('Maior' and 'Minor' Series) have published monographic studies relating to antiquity in each of their disciplines: Prehistory, Ancient History, Archaeology, Indo-European Linguistics, Classic Philology, Law and Classical Thinking in general. They also include tributes to the members of the journal's Editorial Board.

The different monographs published to date have offered new historical, documentary and philological studies, which represent significant advances in both the methodology and knowledge of the different elements from the ancient world. The collection is mainly aimed at researchers from the aforementioned areas, and the general public who are interested in topics related to the prehistory, protohistory and ancient history of the Basque Country, as well as the ancient world's links to the modern day.

A complementary collection to "Anejos de Veleia" named "Acta" was also published up until 2018. In this collection, proceedings of symposia and scientific meetings organized by members of the UPV/EHU Institute of Ancient Studies were published.
