The submitted papers must be original works of the contributors to Prague Egyptological Studies and cannot be concurrently submitted to any other journal or publication. The authors are solely responsible for obtaining all the copyrights and permissions to publish the material discussed, as well as figures and illustrations.


Submission is not a guarantee of publication. All the papers and reports will be peer-reviewed by two anonymous and independent scholars. After the reviews, authors will be able to make any required changes within a time frame of three weeks.


The authors will furthermore receive one page proof, designated to correct technical and apparent textual mistakes. During page proofs, larger changes and additions in the text are unsuitable and must be always discussed with the editors beforehand. The authors will be asked to return the corrected proofs within two weeks. Time limits are necessary to ensure that PES XXI can be printed by the end of the calendar year, therefore late changes and proofs cannot be accepted.


The language of PES XXI is English and all papers will undergo language proofs after acceptance in the review process. Nevertheless, for non-native English speakers, it is recommended to ensure that your submission is of a suitable standard prior to submission.
