Focus and scope

Neograeca Bohemica is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal that provides a platform for original and review papers studying Late Byzantium and Modern Greece in a period ranging from 1204 A.D. up to these days. The scope of the journal primarily encompasses any areas of Late Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies, including Greek linguistics (synchronic and diachronic studies, applied linguistics, socio-linguistics or border disciplines, such as Greek in contact with other languages etc.), Greek literature (historical analysis or analysis of the current state, case studies of singular literary works, reception of the Byzantine and Modern Greek literature in drama/film etc.) and Greek history. It is also open to contributions applying methods of cultural, social or interdisciplinary studies on the Greek speaking areas.

The journal also publishes translations of Late Byzantine and Modern Greek literature and reviews of recent foreign as well as Czech scholarly literature that belongs to the scope of interest of the journal. Reports focused on actual events in the given field are also welcomed.

Neograeca Bohemica is the only journal in the Central Europe dealing with Modern Greek Studies. It seeks to provide publishing platform to both domestic and foreign Byzantinists and Neohellenists in order to strengthen international academic cooperation through research in the field of Greek Studies.

Digital long-term access and archiving policy

Full texts of all papers published in Neograeca Bohemica are available online in the Digital Library of the Faculty of Arts at Masaryk University (built on the DSpace platform), which is the primary source and repository for academic publications at the Faculty of Arts. The journal website (built in Open Journal System) contains links to the fulltext articles archived in the digital library. The journal website is used mainly as a presentation platform for accessing all the information about the journal.

This approach to long-term access and digital archiving of fulltexts “in one place” (i.e. in the digital library) is a strategic decision that was adopted by the Faculty of Arts many years ago. It allows us to ensure high-quality and consistent processing of metadata as well as long-term preservation (LTP) of digital documents, enabling users to search through all the texts.

Journal history

The journal Neograeca Bohemica is a continuation of the periodical Přednášky České společnosti novořeckých studií (Lectures of the Czech Society for Modern Greek Studies) published between 2001–2013 and containing formerly public lectures of the Society (from 2008 onwards already with parallel shorter title Neograeca Bohemica). From 2014 onwards, Neograeca Bohemica has been transformed to a peer-reviewed scholarly journal which is open to experts in the given field from both Czech and foreign scholar and academic milieu.
