The journal Religions (ISSN 2077-1444) is currently running a Special Issue entitled “Sexuality and Greco-Roman Religions”. Professor Marguerite Johnson (The University of Newcastle, Australia) is serving as Guest Editor.

The overarching aim of this volume is to bring scholars from across the globe to engage with this topic from a variety of methodologies and theoretical perspectives. The creation of innovative approaches to the role of sexuality in Greek and Roman religion, cult, worship and belief is the focus. […]

The submission deadline is 1 August 2018. You may send your manuscript now or up until the deadline. Submitted papers should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. We also encourage authors to send a short abstract or tentative title to the Editorial Office in advance (religions@mdpi.com).

Religions is fully open access. Open access (unlimited and free access by readers) increases publicity and promotes more frequent citations, as indicated by several studies. Open access is supported by the authors and their institutes. We are very pleased to announce that Religions has been accepted for funding by the Knowledge Unlatched initiative
(http://www.knowledgeunlatched.org). As of 2018, the Article Processing Charges for papers published in the journal will be fully covered via the Knowledge Unlatched crowd-funding mechanism. Please note this is a pilot program experimenting ways to support authors in the humanities and social sciences fields publishing in open access format.

For further details on the submission process, please see the instructions for authors at the journal website
