CALL FOR PAPERS: New Historia et Ius Journal

Historia et Ius is an on-line International journal dedicated to medieval, modern and contemporary historical legal studies. Founded after the initiative of a group Italian legal historians, the journal is supported by an editorial board composed by European legal historians of high scientific profile.

The journal’s main purpose is to provide an agile and easy to use tool aimed at disseminating the results of legal-historical researches at the international level, as well as facilitating the exchange of ideas and methods.

Historia et Ius, International journal of medieval and modern legal history, invites interested scholars to send articles and texts for publication in the No. 1 of the journal, which will be posted on the web on the 1st of July, 2012. Articles and texts for publication should be sent to the editorial board by the 29th of February, 2012.

The journal is is a semi-annual publication. It is divided into two sections:

1) Studies. This section exclusively publishes articles evaluated through a double blind peer review system. Each article will be anonymously assigned, for evaluation, to two specialists in the subject matter, who will provide their assessment for a course of action. The assessment can be: - positive (the text will be published) - positive with corrections (the text will be published if corrected) - negative (the text will not be published). The result of the evaluation of the reviewers will be communicated to the author within two months from the date of receipt of the text. In the event of disagreement between the two reviewers regarding the assessment of the text, the article will be given to a third reviewer. Annually the journal will show the names of specialists who carried out the assessment of texts published.

2) Interventions. This section concerns various material (e.g. communications, research projects, book reviews) not submitted to the assessment procedure. Texts will be published according to the approval of the editorial board.
