The purpose and the scope of the journal. The journal Galicja. Studia i materiały [Galicia. Studies and Materials] was established at the Institute of History of the University of Rzeszów in 2015. The yearly journal meets the needs of the international community of researchers focused on the history of the former Polish lands of the Austrian partition from the eighteenth to the twentieth century. It is a region where the representatives of the nations of the former Austrian monarchy (Poles, Czechs, Slovaks, Hungarians, Germans, Ukrainians) lived or manifested their activity, which is why the multicultural specificity of this area today constitutes the identity of the modern states located there (Poland, Ukraine).
Galicja. Studia i materiały is a peer-reviewed journal on the history of Austrian Galicia (1772-1918). The journal publishes monographic articles, materials, editions of sources, book reviews and reports on events related to the history of Galicia. Individual volumes have an interdisciplinary character. The journal accepts texts from the fields of history, philosophy, literature, art, culture and religion. We pay special attention to the problems of socio-economic history, history of mentality, history of women, history of historiography, history of philosophy and history of religion.
The journal “Galicja. Studia i materiały” is included in the list of ranked academic journals prepared by MNiSW [Ministry of Science and Higher Education] – it has 70 points.
