Hiperboreea (ISSN 2284–5666) is the official journal of the Balkan History Association. It 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 to 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 with a multidisciplinary approach.

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 from 2020, Hiperboreea will be published by the Pennsylvania State University Press (PSU Press). All manuscripts should be prepared according to PSU Press editorial policy (Author Guidelines) and submitted through the platform Editorial Manager. The editors will inform authors of the decision on their manuscripts within a few weeks from submission. All articles submitted to our journal are reviewed following a double blind peer-review, which means that the reviewer’s and author’s identities are concealed from each other throughout the review process. Our policy requires at least two reviewers per issue, although it is customary that many more reviewers cooperate on individual articles. Members of the Balkan History Association will receive printed and electronic copies by virtue of their membership. For non-member subscription prices, see the PSU Press website.
