AIP Guidelines for Editing Papyri

For anyone who edits papyri, Jean-Luc Forget announced the useful AIP guidelines for editing papyri on the PAPY mailing list as follows:

Dear Papy-list members,

I am pleased to announce that the Guidelines for editing papyri are now online on the website of the Association Internationale de Papyrologues:

This text was prepared at the request of the president of the AIP (after the Lecce Congress) by a working group headed by myselft and made up of the following people : Rodney Ast, Amin Benaissa, Willy Clarysse, Hélène Cuvigny, Alain Delattre, Nick Gonis, Jürgen Hammerstaedt, Federico Morelli, Paul Schubert, Joanne Stolk, Katelijn Vandorpe. It was presented to the AIP General Assembly at the end of the XXXth International Congress of Papyrology (July 30, 2022).

The purpose of these Guidelines is to propose precise norms for editing Greek/Latin, Demotic and Coptic papyri. It also proposes new rules for rendering certain data not taken into account by the Leiden system and for which a uniform treatment would facilitate systematic study.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the working group and the colleagues who kindly gave their opinion and contributed to improve this text. 
We hope that these Guidelines will be useful.
Best wishes,
Jean-Luc Fournet
