The printed journal The City and History, established in 2012, is an initiative of the Department of History of Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice, Slovakia. The journal publishes contributions from history and related disciplines. It focuses in particular on the publication of the recent results of original scientific research by scholars from Slovakia and abroad in the field of urban history. The journal publishes contributions in English. Documents accepted primarily include: scientific studies, articles and papers, discussions, materials, documents, reviews and annotations reports from scholars in the fields of history, social sciences and other related disciplines.
Each submitted paper is evaluated by two peer reviewers, utilizing an anonymous process of evaluation. Peer reviewers are appointed by the Editorial Board and their evaluation is the basis for the decision of the Editorial Board concerning the inclusion of the contribution in the journal. Regarding the inclusion of other contributions, the Editorial Board makes a decision based on the proposals from the Chairman of the Editorial Board.
Authors and reviewers considered to be recognized scholars at home and abroad were invited to work in cooperation with the journal. A successful collaboration with important scientific institutions from Central European countries has been also initiated. Thanks to a rigorous evaluation process, international cooperation and its modern design, the journal has, in a short time, become a respected institution. The journal is now a standard by which both researchers and other, more established journals aim to achieve. The journal The City and History was also registered by the European Association for Urban History, which designated it as one of their recommended journals for urban history.
