Editorial Policy

Editorial Policy

The Editorial Policy of the journal is determined by its goals and scope

‘Historia provinciae – the journal of regional history’ is aimed to solve a wide range of tasks. Due to the dual interpretation of the word ‘region’ (part of the country or an inter-country foreign segment as far as Europe is concerned), the Editorial Board specifically welcomes the manuscripts focused on certain aspects of regional and local history: socio-economic or political aspects, spatial structure of the region, sociocultural processes, etc.

Manuscripts are accepted as based on different theoretical and methodological approaches. The only prerequisite would be their thorough scientific elaboration, adherence to the instructions and high quality of the paper, reliability of selected research techniques as well as the fact that the manuscript has not been published, submitted or considered for publication elsewhere.

The journal considers promotion of regional historians’ research data and achievements to be its priority task. However, the Editorial Board is happy to accept manuscripts for publication prepared by colleagues from leading research centres in Moscow or St Petersburg.

The policy of open access

We pursue the policy of open access. Full text of the articles or any other data published in the journal are available free of charge on the official website of the journal (www.hpchsu.ru ) immediately after its publication.
