Short Description

Published since 1965 by the Jewish Museum in Prague, Judaica Bohemiae focuses on Jewish history and culture in Bohemia, Moravia and the wider Central European area (the territory of the former Habsburg Monarchy). The texts are published in English and German. The inclusion of essays is decided by an editorial board comprising leading specialists in the field. Until 2006, the studies in the journal were assessed at regular meetings of the editorial board. An independent peer review procedure was introduced in 2007. Judaica Bohemiae is indexed and abstracted in the Arts and Humanities Citation Index, (Web of Science), Scopus and the European Reference Index for the Humanities and Social Sciences (ERIH PLUS). The Judaica Bohemiae journal has been published by the Jewish Museum in Prague (until 1994 the State Jewish Museum) since 1965. Originally a biannual journal, it came out annually in 1994–2008, and twice yearly in 2009–2022. In 2023 it will revert to an annual publication again.

Indexing information

Papers that are submitted to the journal Judaica Bohemiae for publication in the peer-reviewed section 'Studies and Articles' are first assessed by the journal’s editors or by members of the editorial board. Papers may be rejected at this stage by the editorial board if they contain major shortcomings in terms of form or content.

Papers that are accepted go through the standard peer review process, with each text being reviewed twice. The text is then made anonymous and sent to a reviewer who is selected by the editorial board with regard to the specialist focus of the text. Preference is given to external reviewers (from the Czech Republic and abroad) although, in exceptional and justified cases, they may be members of the editorial board. A paper by a member of the editorial board must be reviewed by an external reviewer.

If the reviewers differ in their assessments of a particular paper, the editorial board will decide by voting whether to accept one of the reviews or whether to send the paper out to another reviewer for a third review . After the third review is submitted, the editorial board will decide by voting whether to accept or reject the paper. The final decision is based on an absolute majority vote. The editorial board will then return all the reviews to the author with a brief statement on whether the text has been accepted, whether it needs to be revised, or whether it has been rejected.
