Judaica Bohemiae

For contributors

Judaica Bohemiae features original studies on various aspects of Jewish history and culture in Bohemia and Moravia (or, in certain related cases, other countries of the former Habsburg Monarchy) from the Middle Ages through to the present. It also contains reviews and reports on major publications, projects and exhibitions relating to the above themes. The journal’s aim is to familiarize specialists from the Czech Republic and abroad with the findings of researchers in this field (published in English or German).
Manuscripts should be prepared in MS Word format (Times New Roman 12 font) and emailed to the editors ( [email] alexandr.putik[at]jewishmuseum.cz, [email] iveta.cermanova[at]jewishmuseum.cz). They may include black-and-white illustrations, which should be sent in print quality (at 300 dpi) and, if necessary, with copyright permission. You should also attach a brief résumé (max. 100 words) and inform the editors of your full name, title(s) and current professional position.
