About the journal

Czech and Slovak Journal of Humanities (ISSN: 1805-3742) is a peer reviewed scholarly journal founded in 2011 at Palacký University, Olomouc (Czech Republic), one of the oldest Central European universities (established in 1573), and dedicated to some of the main fields of humanities – history, philosophy, visual arts, theater and film, music, cultural anthropology – and to interdisciplinary themes among these fields. The journal is intended as a dialogue between the best Czech and Slovak and world-wide research, and as a forum where innovative approaches and trendy topics are discussed, as well as local themes and temporarily neglected research areas. CSJH is open to Czech, Slovak and international scholars and guarantees a fair and accurate reviewing process. In order to be accessible to an international readership, CSJH publishes the majority of texts in English. Regular scholarly papers are particularly welcome, as well as book or conference reviews, notices, research projects reports and other kinds of academic chronicle.

Journal does not charge any publication or processing fees from the authors.
