Hiperboreea (ISSN 2284–5666) is an online academic journal that publishes studies and articles in English, French or Italian from the field of History as well as book reviews or evaluations of scholarly conferences.

Since its first publication in 2012, Hiperboreea has a monthly periodicity (January 2012-March 2013) and quarterly publication (until the end of 2013). Starting 2014, the journal appears biannually.
