Hiperboreea (ISSN 2284–5666) 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 interdisciplinary background.
Since its first publication in 2012, Hiperboreea has had a monthly periodicity from January 2012 to March 2013, a quarterly publication until the end of 2013, and, starting 2014, a biannual appearance.
Starting with 2018, Hiperboreea is no longer an open access journal (see the “Submission Policy”). 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.
