*  *  *

Published on Thursday, May 04, 2023

Summary

Práticas da História is an open-access, bi-annual online academic journal, and it is looking to publish original articles, bibliographical essays, interviews, and book reviews on the subject matters of historical theory, historiography, methodology, and the uses of the past. We encourage submissions in Portuguese, English, French, or Spanish. The journal attaches equal importance to research relating the practice of history with other domains of the humanities and to works debating history in the context of the social sciences.

Presentation

Práticas da História is an open-access, bi-annual online academic journal, and it is looking to publish original articles, bibliographical essays, interviews, and book reviews on the subject matters of historical theory, historiography, methodology, and the uses of the past. We encourage submissions in Portuguese, English, French, or Spanish.

Without rigidly limiting its areas of interest, the Journal would like to stimulate contributions on:

  • methodological, aesthetical, and epistemological questions related to the practice of historiography;
  • the history of historiography;
  • the relations between historiography and other uses of the past;

The journal attaches equal importance to research relating the practice of history with other domains of the humanities and to works debating history in the context of the social sciences. While we find ourselves in the disciplinary field of history, we do aspire to question the boundaries of the field. It is our goal to promote interdisciplinarity and multidisciplinarity.

The journal encourages the submission of contributions by all researchers, regardless of academic degree or institutional affiliation.

Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  1. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  2. The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  3. Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  4. The text is 1,5 line spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.

Práticas da História accepts original academic research in the form of articles (6000-10000 words), essays (3000-6000 words), book reviews (1500-2500 words), and interviews (1500-3000 words) under the subject matter of historical theory, historiography, methodology or the uses of the past.

Selection of contents

All articles, essays, book reviews and interviews proposed for publication are first evaluated by the Editorial Board of the journal, considering the degree to which they fit the journal’s focus and their relevance and/or originality in the current historiographic and scientific framework. Chosen articles and essays will be subsequently submitted to peer review. The editors reserve the right to publish texts which are not peer-reviewed. Those texts will be flagged appropriately.

Both articles and essays will be submitted to double-blind peer-review procedure in which the identities of authors and evaluators remain confidential.

Articles will be evaluated by two external referees, while essays will be evaluated by one external referee.

Proposals for special issues:

Proposals for special issues will be considered by the editorial board. If approved, each article will go through the normal peer review process separately. The editorial board reserves the right to reject individual articles after having approved the special issue proposal, if that is the recommendation of the peer review. The same criteria apply to proposals for thematic sections.
