How to publish in this journal


“Slavia Meridionalis” is an interdisciplinary journal publishing papers on literature, culture, history, ethnology and languages of southern Slavic countries, as well as their dynamic interactions with other regions. Each issue contains articles concerning a specific, pre-defined topic, which enables scholars of various disciplines (historians, literature and culture experts, linguists, sociologists, and anthropologists) to present in-depth analyses of their research questions. Our journal publishes papers written by distinguished Polish and foreign scholars, as well as young researchers – papers are published as long as they are of high scientific value. “Slavia Meridionalis” invites articles written in English, German, French, Spanish and Russian, but also in all Slavic languages, which ensures that papers reach various academic circles. Every paper in “Slavia Meridionalis” includes an abstract in Polish and English, as well as keywords. Apart from papers, our journal contains two other sections: reviews of important books in Slavic studies, and biographical notes on authors important for the field. We ensure the highest quality of our papers through a three-stage reviewing process: first, an article is reviewed by the members of the Editorial Board; subsequently, it must pass blind peer review; finally, it must be accepted by the evaluator responsible for a given issue.
