West Bohemian Historical Review
West Bohemian Historical Review (WBHR) is a peer-reviewed magazine published by the History Department of the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen in collaboration with the History Department of University in Hamburg. The magazine focuses on the publication of studies of Czech and world history. The periodical is open to contributions from historians with any specialisation or methodological focus. The magazine’s aim is to pose questions for wider international collaboration of communities of history professionals and to try to initiate interdisciplinary dialogue. We therefore hope that West Bohemian Historical Review will be amongst the most sought-after forums dealing in the study and interpretation of history.
Since October 2015 the journal has been included in the prestigious European database of scientific journals ERIH PLUS (European Reference Index for the Humanities and the Social Sciences).
The journal was classified on the list of reviewed scientific journals of the Research, Development and Innovation Council of the Czech Republic.
The journal is abstracted in The Central European Journal of Social Sciences and Humanities (CEJSH) - http://cejsh.icm.edu.pl/cejsh/about.
By sending an article to the editorial office of the Journal, the author expresses his/her consent to publishing of the author's contact data together with the study in case of positive peer review procedure and acceptance of the article for publishing; the data will include: postal address of the author's working centre and contact e-mail and they will be forwarded also to the relevant scientific databases in which the Journal will be indexed.

Instructions for authors:
The editorial board will accept contributions of a rough length of 20–35 standard pages (1800 characters including spaces) in English, French, German, Russian or Spanish. The study must contain an abstract plus key words in English. The editorial board reserves the right to reject a contribution which visibly does not meet the formal requirements set by the editorial board (see here). Reviews and reports can be sent in addition to studies.
You will find specific formal demands here.
Send contributions to the editor’s e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com.
Deadlines for submitting contributions and reviews:
The magazine is published twice a year – contributions for the first issue are accepted until the end of April, and for the second issue until the end of September.
Peer review process:
After approval from the editors, contributions are sent to two independent anonymous reviewers who are specialists in the given field. Authors are informed of the results of the review process in electronic form. If the referees’ reviews contain criticisms, then depending upon their nature, the contribution is sent back to the author for adding to or rewriting. In this case, the study must then once again undergo the peer review process.
Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement
The West Bohemian Historical Review journal strongly sees to that the editors, members of the editorial board and reviewers strictly observe the principles of the publication ethics. All information which would enable to identify the contributor’s name are removed before the paper is send to the review process. After it is received, the paper is presented to the editor in chief, who decides if it will be send to the reviewing process and determines the names of two independent reviewers. The papers, which were recommended to print by the reviewers are then without the name of the author and his affiliation send to the editorial board, which finally authorizes it to publication in the next volume of the journal. The final decision about the publication of each paper is reserved by the editorial board, which can also refuse it.
