The Classical Journal (ISSN 0009-8353) is published by the Classical Association of the Middle West and South (CAMWS), the largest regional classics association in the United States and Canada, and is now over a century old. All members of CAMWS receive the journal as a benefit of membership; non-member and library subscriptions are also available. CJ appears four times a year (October-November, December-January, February-March, April-May); each issue consists of 128 pages. It is included in JSTOR (00098353).
CJ publishes original articles on Graeco-Roman antiquity, generally with a literary, historical or cultural focus; paedagogical articles and notes, many having to do with the challenges of teaching Latin and Greek in modern high schools, colleges and universities; select book reviews. In addition, CJ generally publishes the annual CAMWS Presidential Address and the year's Ovationes. All abstracts are posted here. PDF versions of a number of Forum articles are also available for downloading.
