About the Journal

Aims & Scope

Acta Fakulty filozofické Západočeské univerzity v Plzni / West Bohemian Review of Social Sciences & Humanities is an on-line journal published bi-annually (June and December) by the Faculty of Arts, University of West Bohemia. The journal seeks to be a platform for developing theoretically and methodologically original scientific discussions and publishes original and double-blind peer-reviewed manuscripts in social sciences, humanities and related scientific fields. The journal welcomes texts representing not only individual disciplines but also (and even primarily) interdisciplinary texts that help deepen the debate across the wide spectrum of social sciences and humanities. In this respect, the journal is unique (not only in the Czech environment) making its role within interdisciplinary discussion irreplaceable.

The journal accepts texts in English, Czech and Slovak. Although the journal prefers contributions in English, by publishing texts in a national language it allows to preserve and develop academic terminology, and thus deepen the communication among the disciplines of social sciences and humanities. In addition to English abstract and title, each text published in Czech or Slovak provides an extensive English summary that can deliver the main conclusions to the international scholarly community.

Since its foundation in 2009, the journal has become an important platform for discussion within the Czech social sciences and humanities. Since 2015, the journal has been published not only in print (ISSN print 1802-0364) but also in electronic (ISSN on-line 2336-6346) form. Since 2019, the journal has been published exclusively electronically.
