ivo  cerman's picture

A new issue of Opera historica has been published. This time, it is a speicalized issue focused on the history of epidemics in the Habsburg hereditary lands (i.e. the Bohemian lands and Austrian core lands). It presents contributions by Czech and Austrian historians, this time written in Czech and German. The articles have English abstracts and we will publish longer English summaries of the Czech articles in our blog section. The abstracts can be opened on our website. Readers will certainly appreciate the bibliography of works on Epidemics in the Habsburg hereditary lands (ca 1500-1918) at the end of the volume. We will update and expand the bibliography on our website opera-historica.com

The journal has been accepted for inclusion in Scopus.
