The Historický časopis / Historical Journal appears fives times a year. It publishes exclusively original articles, which result from the author’s own research.

The editorial board accepts manuscript articles throughout the year. The texts may be in Slovak, Czech or English.

If articles fall within the thematic orientation of the journal and fulfil its formal criteria, the editors submit the papers for assessment by anonymous reviewers. We inform the authors about their acceptance or rejection on the basis of the assessments of the reviewers and decision of the editorial board of the Historický časopis. Authors will submit their manuscripts exclusively to the Historický časopis and not publish them in other periodicals before the decision of the editorial board. Manuscripts are not returned. By submitting an article to the editorial board of the Historický časopis, authors agree to its publication in electronic form on the web page of the journal.

You should submit contributions to the Historický časopis by sending them to the editors’ address (histcaso@gmail.com) in electronic form. Notes should appear as footnotes on each page, not as endnotes at the end of the article. A list of cited literature should appear at the end of the paper in alphabetical order.

The extent of a study should be at least 36,000 characters and at most 72,000 characters including footnotes and spaces. The editorial board will not accept studies that are shorter than 27,000 characters or longer than 80,000. The extent of a review should be 7,200 – 18,000 characters including spaces and footnotes.

It is necessary to add to a study, an abstract in Slovak and English with an extent of 1500 – 2000 characters, key words in English and personal data about the author (address, employment, e-mail and telephone contact)

If the study was produced as part of a specific project, the author should mention this in the first footnote, giving its number, name and the institution responsible for the project, for example: The work / study was done in the framework of the project APVV-17-0398 researched in the Institute of History of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, or: This work was supported by the Agentúra na podporu výskumu a vývoje (Agency to Support Research and Development) on the basis of contract no. APVV-17-0398 and was researched in the Institute of History of the Slovak Academy of Sciences.

The principles of STN ISO 690: 2012 – must be respected. However, some punctuation marks are used differently in citations in the Historical Journal compared to the usual Slovak language rules and the above mentioned norm.

For every bibliographic item, it is necessary to give the DOI, and if the given document does not have one, it is necessary to give the ISBN or ISSN. Older documents do not have these identifiers.
