Scandinavian Journal of History

The Scandinavian Journal of History presents articles on Scandinavian history and review essays surveying themes in recent Scandinavian historical research. It concentrates on perspectives of national historical particularities and important long-term and short-term developments. The editorial policy gives particular priority to Scandinavian topics and to efforts of placing Scandinavian developments into a larger context. Studies explicitly comparing Scandinavian processes and phenomena to those in other parts of the world are therefore regarded as particularly important. In addition to publishing articles and review essays, the journal includes short book reviews. Review essay proposals and polemical communications are welcomed.

The Scandinavian Journal of History is published for the Historical Associations of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and the Scandinavian subcommittees of the International Committee of Historical Sciences.

5 issues a year.
