Onoma, whose title is the Greek word for `name', is the journal of ICOS. Founded in 1950, the journal primarily contained current international onomastic bibliographies up to vol. 31 (1996). Since that issue, Onoma has not published bibliographies, as ICOS has a separate bibliography project.
From vol. 32 (1995) onwards, Onoma has been inviting topical research reports as well as articles and reviews of a general and theoretical interest concerning all areas of scholarly name research. Membership of ICOS is not required for authors wishing to publish in Onoma. Onoma is a fully peer-reviewed journal. Manuscripts of articles are read and evaluated anonymously by at least two qualified scholars. Manuscripts of onomastic reports are appraised by the ICOS Editorial Board.
The basis of each volume is invited contributions, but scholars who wish to have manuscripts considered alongside the invited ones should contact the guest editor of the relevant volume in the first instance, BEFORE SUBMITTING ANY MANUSCRIPT, and that person will liaise with the Editor in Chief of Onoma, at the moment Antti Leino.
