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. Since 2016, Celtica has become an annual journal that appears regularly towards the end of each calendar year.

Celtica 33 (2021), edited by Barry J. Lewis and Ruairí Ó hUiginn, has just been published.

Celtica 34 (2022) is being edited and will appear later this year. Submissions are now sought for Celtica 35 (2023).

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 Celtica guidelines for authors.

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.
