The new Journal of Belgian History


The new Journal of Belgian History (JBH) is an illustrated scientific journal devoted to the history of Belgium in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It is the result of a merger between the old RBHC / BTNG (1969-2011) and the Cahiers d'Histoire du Temps présent / Bijdragen tot de Eigentijdse Geschiedenis (1996-2011). The journal publishes high-quality articles, summaries of the work of recent doctoral theses, and reviews of historical monographs concerning the history of Belgium, as well as a debate forum. More information can be found in the editorial of the first issue (click here for consultation).

The journal has been incorporated since 2007 in the ISI Arts and Humanities Citation Index. Four issues are published annually including articles in English, French and Dutch. The new JBH is published by CEGESOMA. The journal has its own website (click here for consultation).

A price reduction and an anniversary issue of the JBH in 2019

 Thanks to the financial support of the Universitaire Stichting – Fondation Universitaire and the FNRS we can announce some good news : the cost of the Journal of Belgian History will be reduced. As of 2019, you will pay as an individual reader only 40 euro (without shipping costs) for a subscription of four issues; institutions will pay 60 euro (without shipping costs). One issue will cost only 15 euro (a single issue) or 25 euro (a double sized issue). Bookshops can enjoy a 20% discount. This reduction will not have any impact on the quality of the content, quite on the contrary.
