The Historický časopis / Historical Journal is the most important periodical in the field of historiography published in Slovakia.
It is an academic peer-reviewed journal published by the Institute of the History of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava since 1953. At present it appears five times a year, with papers published in the Slovak, Czech, English, German and French languages. The journal serves as one of the tools for organizing historical science and presenting its outputs to the broader scholarly community. It is open for all opinions, orientations, schools and topics if they are based on serious research and are processed in accordance with the basic principles of historical science. The program of the journal is not to prefer any time-period, topic or section from history. It aims to contribute to the rectification of deformations in Slovak historical research. It is the journal for all historians who are dealing with Slovak and Central European history.
Besides problem-oriented scientific studies, the journal also publishes overviews and material studies, discussions, reviews and annotations of books, reports and information about what is happening in the field of historical sciences.
