This journal is an international journal printing contributions in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish; specializing in synthetic articles and in long reviews.

This journal is concerned with Italy and all parts of the Roman world from about 700 B.C. to about A.D. 700. It excludes the prehistoric period but includes the Etruscan period. It is Mediterranean-wide in its coverage and does not give priority to any particular geographical regions within the Roman world.

In 2020 it was announced by Cambridge University Press that Jennifer Trimble (Stanford University) would assume the role of Senior Editor beginning with volume 34.[3]
