Hiperboreea is an online academic journal published biannually by the Balkan History Association. The journal publishes articles in the field of History, written in English and occasionally French, and book reviews, or evaluations of scholarly conferences. Our focus is the study of Southeastern Europe, broadly defined as the states situated in the Balkan region.
Without limiting its scope a specific historical period or approach, the journal covers a wide range of topics, such as Cultural History, Political History, Military History, Social History, Economic History and Archaeology, and encourages work on any historical period and pluri-disciplinary background.
The following types of manuscripts are considered for publication:
– original articles in basic and applied research; – critical reviews, surveys, opinions, commentaries and essays.
Starting from 2020, Hiperboreea will be published by the Pennsylvania State University Press (PSU Press). All manuscripts should be prepared according to PSU Press editorial policy (Author Guidelines).
Hiperboreea is one of the few Romanian journals that has built a solid presence in the online environment, being indexed in the following international databases and libraries:
ISI Web of Science (ESCI), EBSCO, Scopus, ERIH PLUS, Ulrich, ProQuest, ProQuest Philosophy Database, Index Copernicus, CEEOL, WorldCat, Regesta Imperii, J-Gate, International Bibliography of Humanism and the Renaissance, Bibliographical Information Base in Patristics, Modern Language Association International Bibliography, Romanian Academy Library, National Library of Australia, Oxford Library, Harvard Library, etc.
The editors will inform authors of the decision on their manuscripts within 1-2 weeks from submission. Starting with 2018, some changes in the editorial policy of Hiperboreea are implemented. Authors will be charged with a symbolic fee, for each article published, regular or special issues. Thus, charges will be applied to authors for the processing (not editing) and publication of manuscripts submitted to Hiperboreea and online hosting and archiving. The publication fee will be of 11 Euro (50 RON for Romania) per each article. Members of the Balkan History Association will be able to publish for free. All costs will be charged only upon the acceptance of their manuscripts for publication. After publication, each author will receive his article through e-mail as an electronic copy (pdf). All articles can be distributed by the authors for non-commercial purposes, only with the written permission of the Editorial Board. See more details in the section called ‘Submission’.
All articles submitted to our journal are reviewed following a double blind peer-review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. Our standards impose the existence of at least two reviewers per issue, although it is customary that many more peer-reviewers cooperate for individual issues.
