In March 2016, five Classics students at the University of Roehampton came together with the idea of creating a journal with the sole purpose of publishing the very best work produced by undergraduate and graduate students; NEO – The Classics Students Journal was founded.
A journal by students, for students. Our main objective here at NEO is to foster the academic progression of students and early career researchers. We only publish work of the highest creativity and scholarly quality so that we might provide a creditable avenue for the key first steps in an academic career. We also want to give our authors their first and necessary contact with the demanding standards of the professional academic world. We publish original graduate and undergraduate studies that may have arisen from university assessments or from papers presented at academic meetings and conferences. Our double peer-review system ensures the excellence of the papers contained within NEO and, by extent, the authors who succeed in being published with us. We believe that the opportunities created by this journal will encourage confidence, provide additional motivation for students to excel in their studies, and enable us to exhibit some of the outstanding and academically contributing work produced inside the university Classics classroom.
