 Abstract: We construct a Lorentz covariant, polynomial action for free chiral $p-$forms, classically equivalent to the Pasti-Sorokin-Tonin (PST) formulation. The minimal set up requires introducing an auxiliary $p-$form on top of the physical gauge $p-$form and the PST scalar. The action enjoys duality symmetries which exchange the roles of physical and auxiliary $p-$form fields. Same type of actions are available for duality-symmetric formulations, which is demonstrated on the example of electromagnetic field in four dimensions. There, the degrees of freedom of a single Maxwell field are described employing four distinct vector gauge fields and a scalar field. Similarly to PST, our models are available only in spaces of Minkowski signature.
