Hiperboreea is the official biannual journal of the Balkan History Association. It 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 to 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 with a multidisciplinary approach.
Hiperboreea is published by the Pennsylvania State University Press. All manuscripts should be prepared according to the Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition and submitted through the platform Editorial Manager (Submission Guidelines). The editors will inform authors of the decision on their manuscripts within a few weeks from submission. All articles submitted to our journal are reviewed following a double blind peer-review, which means that the reviewer’s and author’s identities are concealed from each other throughout the review process. Our editorial policy requires at least two reviewers per issue, although it is customary that many more reviewers cooperate on individual articles. Members of the Balkan History Association will receive printed and electronic copies by virtue of their membership. For non-member subscription prices, please contact the Johns Hopkins University Press at firstname.lastname@example.org.
