Editorial Policies

Focus and Scope

CROMOHS is a peer-reviewed and open-access electronic journal, with twenty-year history and a respectable reputation for scholarly rigour. Under our new direction, the Advisory and Editorial Boards have been completely replaced and the journal will adopt a new format with monographic sections on challenging and fresh topics in intellectual and cultural history. The aim is to promote methodological debates at international level arising from original and creative dialogue between scholarly traditions, as well as innovative archival inquiries. As usual, each issue will also include a section for critical discussions and book reviews.

Contributions to Cromohs are welcome.

Journal secures:

  • open access to contribution (authors retain copyright)
  • peer-review by internationl experts
  • wide dissemination of published contributions both in the national and international area, with the help of specific tools

Peer Review Process

  • According to the procedures employed to select articles for publication in CROMOHS, no manuscript can be accepted until it has been appraised by the Editors and sent to at least two reviewers. This will occur no later than three weeks after the deadline for the call for papers. The Editors’ decision as to whether or not to publish the manuscript is influenced considerably by the comments of the reviewers, who are all experts in their respective fields.
  • The review process is double-blind. Only the Editors know the identity of the author and the reviewers. In order to maximize objectivity and ensure that the manuscript is judged solely on the basis of its content and contribution to the field, the author’s name and credentials are removed before the manuscript is sent to the reviewers.
  • The reviewers are requested to evaluate the manuscript within six weeks. If it is recommended for publication, but alterations or corrections are needed, the author is expected to submit a revised version within three weeks.
  • The Editors have the final word on whether an article is accepted or rejected.
