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.

Moreover, 'Actas' accept proposals from congress publications, symposia and scientific conferences organised by members of the Institute of Ancient Sciences (ICA-AZI) at UPV/EHU, in which both domestic and foreign researchers participate. Included among these is the series of  "Ancient History Review" congresses, which began in 1994.

Given the characteristics of the 'Actas', the editing costs are borne by the organisers of the congress or seminar who are additionally the editors of the publication.

3. Director

José Mª Vallejo

Head of Indo-European Linguistics, has given classes in the Department of Classical Studies of the UPV/EHU since 1997. Graduated in Hispanic Philology (University of Deusto, 1991) and in Classical Philology (University of the Basque Country, 1994) and graduated with a doctorate in Classical Philology at the Unversity of the Basque Country in 2002.

Since 2005 he has participated actively in 5 research projects in MICINN. The most recent being Project FFI 2015-63981-C3-1-P, funded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness on the topic of  “Hesperia: Paleohispanic Languages, Epigraphy and Onomastics ”:

His teaching is focused equally on Indo-European Linguistics and Comparative and Historical Linguistics. As a result, his research is centered, on one hand, on the study of ancient languages of the Iberian Peninsula, as much in reference to direct evidence (inscriptions) as to indirect evidence(onomastics), and on the other hand, to the problems of the reconstruction of proto-romance based on romance language evidence.

Among his most relevant publications we cite the following books:

  • Basic Glossary of Indo-European Linguistics, University of the Basque Country, Bilbao, 2016.
  • Paleo-hispanic omnastics. Anthroponymy and Toponymy: Latin, Celtiberian and Lusitanian Epigraphic Evidence and Literary Evidence (BDHESP III, I, 1: Banco de Datos Hesperia de Lenguas Paleohispánicas), University of the Basque Country, Bilbao, 2016.
  • Indigenious Anthroponymy of Roman Lusitania (Veleia, Anejos minor 23), Vitoria-Gasteiz, 2005.

5. Instructions for authors submitting original manuscripts

6. Information on the manuscript selection process

The initial selection of original documents for the Collection of Appendices to 'Veleia' is done by the Scientific Committee. The Committee assesses the work and issues a reasoned report on its suitability. If this first assessment is negative, it is rejected and the the Editorial Service informs the author of this decision in a reasoned and well-written letter.

If the first assessment is positive, the collection management along with that of the Editorial Service will select four persons as external assessors from specialists of the matter in question. The assessment process will be anonymous, in accordance with the double-blind peer review procedure.

The Editorial Service management will request that the assessors send their report within a period of no longer than sixty days after the original format of the work was sent. If accepted, the author will be informed by via e-mail.

If the two reports issued are favourable, the Scientific Committee will accept publication of the work and, in the event of  disagreement between one report and another, the assessment of a third will be requested and, only if this is positive will the work be accepted for publication.

Once the assessment process has ended, the author will be notified of the decision and will be sent (by e-mail) the assessors' reports so that they can view in detail the assessments made by the experts and the relevant corrections, if any. In the event that the manuscript requires corrections, amendments or extensions, the author will be given a maximum period of thirty days to implement them. Once the relevant corrections have been made, which will be clearly outlined in the text, the author will send the manuscript again (according to the collection's standards: to the Management thereof.

After the manuscript has been received in its final version, it will be sent by e-mail to the  Editorial Service at UPV/EHU.

The Editorial Service may request a paper copy of the work, if deemed appropriate.
