About the Journal
Focus and Scope of the Journal
Studia Ceranea. Journal of the Waldemar Ceran Research Centre for the History and Culture of the Mediterranean Area and South-East Europe is published once a year at the Waldemar Ceran Research Centre for the History and Culture of the Mediterranean Area and South-East Europe (Ceraneum), University of Lodz, Poland.
Studia Ceranea being designed as an international journal, contributions in the standard conference languages will be accepted (English, French, German, Russian and Italian). We have resolved to accept papers pertaining to the history and culture of the eastern Mediterranean and the Slavic area within the chronological limits from the 1st through the 17th century AD.
The task that the Editorial Council of Studia Ceranea has set before itself is the gradual creation of a scientific journal, interdisciplinary in character, which will offer specialist articles, reviews and notes on newly published monographs. Along these lines, we will attempt to cross the limits of the narrow specializations restricted to Byzantine or Slavic studies; the papers contributed would represent various aspects of the Late Ancient, Byzantine and Slavic culture of the eastern Mediterranean Area largissimo sensu and South-East Europe, which – we claim – forms an integrity, for all its diversity. Consequently, the journal, based on previous models of other respectable journals devoted to similar subject matters, utilizes the methodology and achievements of disciplines used in the study of Late Antiquity, Middle Ages and early Modern Era and is ready to face the new challenges posed by contemporary humanist thought.
The Editorial Board of Studia Ceranea is committed to provide the highest ethical standards at every stage of the publishing procedure. The review process is arranged by double blind peer review system (PrePrint type). Every text is subject to at least two reviews.
Amount of research and review articles which were published last year: 39.
