Submission and Review Process


The EEHR strives to uphold the standards of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). The EEHR invites to read the Code of Ethics to which it refers.

The EEHR is a “no-charge journal” for article submission and publication.

The journal encourages authors to present topics concerning the history of Eastern Europe and its relations with Continental Europe in the Modern era.

Review Process

Once verified that submissions respect the purposes of Eastern European History Review, the editors will send the paper to at least two blind peer reviewers. The sending is also notified to the author and the manuscript is considered accepted by the journal.

The reviewers could ask for some revisions of the works based on the guidelines and the scientific mission of the journal. If the authors accept the suggestions and will return the revised work (within the period indicated by the editorial board in the notification mail), the manuscript will be ready for publication.
