La Revue Bénédictine publishes articles on Benedictine patristics and monastic history; these articles, implementing philological and historical methods, must constitute an original contribution to research and cannot have been published previously or simultaneously elsewhere.

Articles can be written in English, French, German and Italian. The author will attach a summary of about ten lines in the language of composition and, if possible, in English. This summary will not be printed, but will be used to find the article on la Revue Bénédictine website and online.

In addition, for detailed online referencing, authors are asked (as of 2018) to provide a bibliographic list of the works cited in the article, distinguishing :

1. Manuscripts and archives ;

2. Printed sources ;

3. Work.

The author will clearly indicate his surname, first name, function, professional address. With a view to sending proofs and reprints, the editorial office should be informed of the useful postal address and, where applicable, any change in this address.
The article sent to the editor will be read by members of the reading committee. La Revue Bénédictine may subject its acceptance to adaptations or improvements suggested by this committee. It gives its response as soon as possible, at the latest within three months of receipt of the manuscript.

When the article is accepted, la Revue Bénédictine needs the electronic copy and the hard copy of the article in its final form from the author’s point of view. The editor is responsible for putting it in style according to the uses of the journal.

The author who entrusts an article to la Revue Bénédictine thereby authorizes the journal to introduce the document on other media, in particular electronic. Brepols Publishers ensures the exclusive online distribution of articles.

For any reprint or other printing of the article, the author must obtain the written permission of la Revue Bénédictine (at the earliest three years after the first publication) and respect the rights of Brepols Publishers.

The author of the article will receive 25 reprinted copies of his text free of charge. They will be sent to his postal address. Additional copies may be requested, subject to payment.
