The journal of the School of Celtic Studies

Celtica is the School’s peer-reviewed journal. Since its first appearance in 1946 it has published pioneering work in all aspects of Celtic Studies, including linguistics, literature, manuscript studies, textual criticism, history, law, dialect studies and onomastics. It covers all of the Celtic languages and all periods from the earliest inscriptions to the spoken languages of the present day.

Celtica 28 (2016), edited by Professor Fergus Kelly, Professor Pádraig A. Breatnach and Professor Barry Lewis, will be published later this year.

From Celtica 29 (2017) onwards it is hoped to make Celtica an annual journal which will appear regularly towards the end of each calendar year.

Articles for submission to Celtica should be sent to celtica@celt.dias.ie not later than the end of November each year for publication in the following year. All articles will be subject to peer-review. Contributors are requested to adhere to the guidelines for contributors.

Celtica offers green open access. The Board of the School of Celtic Studies has approved the following statement of policy:

‘A contribution to Celtica may on application be deposited in post print form in an institutional online research repository (green open access). Any author who wishes to do so should indicate this to the editors of Celtica at the time of submission. Celtica will normally allow the subsequent deposit of the final published version twelve months after the date of publication of the journal.’

The current editors of Celtica are Professor Ruairí Ó hUiginn and Professor Barry Lewis.
