Journal profile

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.


Dear Sir/Madam

A need to publish a scientific journal devoted to the history of Galicia was already indicated in the spring of 2009, when the International Research Team ‘Galicia 1772-1918’ began its work in the Institute of History at the University of Rzeszów. The team gathering historians from Austria, Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Ukraine and Hungary organized six international scientific conferences in Rzeszów, Przemyśl, Poznań and Lviv. Conferences were followed by publications: ‘Galicia 1772-1918. Methodological difficulties, current state and needs of research’ by A. Kawalec, W. Wierzbieniec and L. Zaszkilniak (eds.), volume 1-3; ‘Galicia and January Uprising’ (2013) by M. Hoszowska, A. Kawalec and L. Zaszkilniak (eds.) published in Warsaw-Rzeszów; ‘Galician roads and roadless tracts: a study of infrastructure, organization and culture of travelling’ (2013) by J. Kamińska-Kwak (ed.) published in Rzeszów; ‘Everyday life, economy, culture and Polish society in 1772-1918. Dissertations about the history of Polish lands in the period of partitions’ (2015) by W. Łazuga and D. Szymczak published in Poznań; ‘Between politics, history and historical memory. Studies of Polish history in the post-partition period’ (2015) by W. Łazuga and S. Paczos (eds.) published in Poznań; ‘Woman in Galicia. Modernity and Tradition’ (2016) in book series: ‘Galicia and its heritage’ by J. Kamińska-Kwak, S. Kozak and D. Opaliński (eds.) published in Rzeszów. 


Invitation to cooperation

Dear Sir/Madam,
We would like to present the current volume of the yearly journal “Galicja. Studia i materiały”. At the moment we are working to prepare another one, which will be published in the next calendar year. The published volumes deal with a vast variety of topics, including those related to Habsburg countries and to the present. As you may have noticed, some issues of “Galicja. Studia i materiały” are monographs. However, it is not a rule, which is why we invite you to send texts of diversified nature, related to the general journal profile. Future issues of the journal will depend on the proposals submitted by you.
We are interested in a wide filed of Galician history, including its political, social-economic, sociological and cultural aspects. We hope for cooperation with researches focusing on culture, history of law and system, history of education and educational system, press, history of historiography, history of literature, arts, architecture and music. We ask for applications, including papers presenting everyday life in Galicia, biographic texts depicting eminent Galician characters and authorized interviews with scholars dealing with the history of the province. We look forward for new historiographical trends.
In the journal we will present sources and materials about the history of Galicia, reviews and write-ups of works concerning the history of the province.
We are cordially inviting you to the cooperation.
