Description

Established in 1929, the peer-reviewed journal Archiv orientální (ArOr) proudly looks back on a long publication history. It provides a forum for the publication of innovative research dedicated to the cultures and societies of Asia and Africa, past and present. We especially welcome articles dedicated to the history, religion, languages, and literatures of these regions, but we also gladly accept articles of distinction from the social and political sciences. We are especially interested in novel approaches and fresh ideas that promise to make a substantial contribution to the development of their respective fields. The journal addresses not only the academic public, but also a wider readership with a general interest in Asian and African studies.

In addition to our regular three annual issues, we also publish one special issue per year that is prepared by guest-editors and specifically focuses on one topic. Furthermore, the journal publishes a Supplementa series which serves as a platform for edited volumes and monographs the topics of which fall into the thematic range of the journal.

Frequency

The journal is published three times a year (May, September, and December). We accept submissions of articles, book reviews, and review articles throughout the entire year. Each issue is divided into three sections according to region: Near East and Africa, South and Central Asia, and the Far East.

Publisher

The journal is published by the Oriental Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences.

Submissions:

  • Research articles (6,000–12,000 words, including notes; plus 200–word abstract, list of keywords, and a note about the author)
  • Research reports (up to 4,000 words)
  • Book Reviews (up to 1,500 words)
  • Review Articles (up to 6,000 words)
