Mediaevalia Historica Bohemica

The periodical is devoted to the history of the Bohemian Middle Age in the context of Central European and European development. The foundation of the journal occurred on 1 October 1990 with its separation from the series Folia Historica Bohemica, which on the contrary at the same time narrowed its interest only to Early Modern themes. Since 2001, it has been a peer-reviewed periodical. Since 2007, MHB has belonged to the category of internationally recognized scientific periodicals (Int2) with the database European Reference Index for the Humanities (ERIH) and since 2008 the English abstracts have been published in the CEJSH international database. Currently, this periodical comes out twice a year.

The review and annotation published in the journal MHB have been freely accessible online since Volume 2012 at the portal

Since 2017 journal is indexed in Scopus, prestigious international database of peer-reviewed scientific literature.

The journal primarily consists of two thematic parts: “Studies” (original, peer-reviewed scientific treatises) and “Literature” (annotations and reviews); occasionally complemented by the sections “Discussion, opinions and inspiration” (discussion contributions, summary treatises on the state of the research, familiarization with the topics of foreign research etc.) and “Chronicle” (reports from conference meetings, workshops etc.). In the “Studies” section, only peer-reviewed treatises are published. The texts prined in the section “Discussion, opinions and inspiration”, the printing of which required an opponent’s process, are labelled with a capital “R” in the heading next to the title of the article.

Each single study undergoes a double-blinded peer-review process, in which two reviews are elaborated by independent opponents. If the opponents distinctly disagree in the evaluation of the reviewed text, a thris, decisive opinion is requested.

The publication ethics statement of Mediaevalia Historica Bohemica is based on the Code of Conduct guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
