Mission Statement

The Journal of Belgian History (JBH) is the leading scholarly journal for Belgian contemporary history (19th and 20th century). Since 2007, it has been incorporated in the ISI Arts and Humanities Citation Index. The Journal is published by CegeSoma, the Study Centre for War and Contemporary Society (part of the Belgian State Archives). The journal publishes articles, a debate section, reviews and an overview of PhD research. The journal publishes four issues per year (with one double issue). We publish contributions in Dutch and French, but also in German and in English. Our editorial board contains representatives of the history departments of all Belgian universities. They co-organize the anonymous peer-review of all articles.
