– Il sito della “Rivista Ciceroniana On Line” (http://www.ojs.unito.it/index.php/COL/index), operativo da dicembre 2015 con i .pdf di tutti i numeri della rivista cartacea “Ciceroniana” (dal 1959 al 2009), dispone ora di statistiche automatiche e pubbliche, con le quali si monitorano le visite e gli scaricamenti (http://www.ojs.unito.it/index.php/COL/about/editorialPolicies#custom-0). La bella sorpresa è stata di scoprire che nel 2016, primo anno in cui tutti i numeri pregressi di Ciceroniana erano disponibili i downloads sono stati poco meno di 17500, cioè quasi 50 al giorno! Nei primi sei mesi del 2017 i downloads sono quasi 9000, mostrando una persistenza di interesse, conseguente anche al lancio del primo numero di “Ciceroniana On Line” a maggio 2017. Un risultato incredibile per un campo di ricerca così definito e professionale come gli studi ciceroniani. Il merito va all’alto livello dei contributi pubblicati per 50 anni su “Ciceroniana”, ma anche il lavoro svolto dal Consiglio scientifico e dalla redazione di COL dal 2013 in avanti è stato fondamentale. La fama così ottenuta tra studiosi e curiosi costituisce un ottimo trampolino di lancio per i prossimi numeri della neonata “Ciceroniana On Line”.

Le site de la revue « Ciceroniana On Line » (http://www.ojs.unito.it/index.php/COL/index), opérationnel depuis décembre 2015 avec .pdf, constitué de tous les numéros de la revue « Ciceroniana » en version papier (1959-2009), dispose à présent de statistiques automatiques et publiques, avec lesquelles nous pouvons contrôler les visites et les téléchargements (http://www.ojs.unito.it/index.php/COL/about/editorialPolicies#custom-0). Ce fut une belle surprise de constater qu’en 2016, la première année où tous les numéros précédents de « Ciceroniana » étaient disponibles, les téléchargements étaient d’un peu moins de 17.500, soit près de 50 par jour ! Au cours des six premiers mois de l’année 2017, les téléchargements s’élèvent à presque 9000, montrant un intérêt persistant, qui a eu comme résultat le lancement du premier numéro de « Ciceroniana On line » en mai 2017. Un résultat incroyable pour un champ de recherche aussi défini et professionnel que celui des études cicéroniennes. Le mérite en revient au niveau élevé des contributions publiées depuis 50 ans sur « Ciceroniana », mais aussi au travail effectué par le Conseil scientifique et le conseil de rédaction de COL depuis 2013, ce qui fut un travail en amont fondamental. La réputation ainsi obtenue entre les chercheurs et les curieux constitue un excellent tremplin pour les prochains numéros de la toute jeune « Ciceroniana On Line ».

The site of “Ciceroniana Online” (http://www.ojs.unito.it/index.php/COL/index), which has been in operation since December 2015, contains pdfs of all issues of the paper journal “Ciceroniana” (1959-2009) and now has public, automated statistics (visits and downloads are monitored: see further http://www.ojs.unito.it/index.php/COL/about/editorialPolicies#custom-0).  We were very pleased to note that in 2016—the first year in which previous issues were available–there were nearly 17500 downloads (almost 50 a day!).  In the first six months of 2017 there were nearly 9000 downloads, showing the persistent interest in the journal following the launch of the first issue “Ciceroniana On Line” in May 2017.  We feel that this is an incredible result in a research field as established and professional as Cicero studies.  Credit goes to the high level of contributions published for 50 years in “Ciceroniana”, but the work of the academic council and editorial staff of COL from 2013 has also been fundamental.  The positive response from scholars and interested readers offers an excellent springboard for the next issues of the revived “Ciceroniana On Line”.

IV. VARIA

1 – A VENIR & INFORMATIONS / PROSSIME INIZIATIVE & INFORMAZIONI / FORTHCOMING & INFORMATION

Polis Announcement. Since 1978 Polis: the Journal for Ancient Greek Political Thought has published ground-breaking scholarship on the classical Greek political thought and its later reception. The journal’s Editor and Associate Editors would like to make several announcements to the community of scholars about the growth of our journal. Our first announcement is that beginning in 2018, Brill will increase the frequency of Polis from two issues to three issues annually. Second, the editorial staff of the journal would like to announce that Polis will broaden its research domain to include articles on all aspects of Hellenistic and Roman political thought and their subsequent reception. Third, in conjunction with these historic developments, the editorial board is proud to announce the addition of three new scholars who have accepted positions as Associate Editors. Carol Atack (University of Oxford), will oversee submissions on Greek political thought, Benjamin Gray (Birkbeck, University of London, and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin), will oversee submissions on Hellenistic political thought, and Daniel Kapust (University of Wisconsin-Madison), will oversee submissions on Roman political thought. The editorial board looks forward to publishing ground-breaking scholarship and book reviews not only on the polis, which gave birth to concepts such as democracy and tyranny, but also on the civitas, which both developed and offered novel alternatives of political organization to the polis. The scholarly field of Greek and Roman political thought has reached a level of sophistication and academic seriousness that calls for a journal commensurate with the academic promise of that field’s scholars. Polis takes these major editorial steps in order that it become the preeminent source of publication for this exciting and growing research domain. LINK
