A peer-reviewed journal is published exclusively on the Internet which guarantees quick and efficient publishing procedures with a paper being published within a period of five months from the date of submission. RIHA Journal is a an ongoing publication – individual papers are sequentially numbered and there is no division into regularly published issues. Occasionally, as series of articles focusing on a common topic are published as Special Issues.
The RIHA Journal is an open access e-journal, devoted to the full range of the history of art and visual culture. The journal seeks to publish papers - be it on local, regional or transnational art histories - that are apt to animate the disciplines of art history and visual studies today and engage with important theoretical questions. As a collective endeavour, the RIHA Journal seeks to share materials and knowledge issued by scholars of all nationalities, and by doing so, to make a significant contribution to dissolving the boundaries between scholarly communities.
