About Peritia

Peritia is an international peer-reviewed journal published by Brepols with a focus on Insular culture from Late Antiquity to the later Middle Ages. Within those parameters we welcome submissions from all cognate disciplines. The journal has published ground-breaking articles in archaeology, computistics, hagiography, history, law, literature and music. While Peritia enjoys a core strength in early medieval Ireland, this has never been exclusivist; other areas of research, related to the Insular world and its connections to the wider early medieval West are well-represented.

Potential contributors are encouraged to submit their manuscripts to the editors via e-mail to editors@peritia.ie. Peritia publishes its articles in English. The journal does not accept submissions that are translations into English of papers previously published in another language. Before submitting, authors should familiarise themselves with the journal’s peer-review policies and style sheet. These can be accessed at the Guidelines for Contributors page. Papers accepted for publication are double blind-refereed to ensure academic integrity. Peritia is also REF-compliant.

Peritia has a lively reviews section. The editors commission individual reviews. In addition, a list of books, available for review, can be downloaded in the Books for Review page. The review editors welcome expressions of interest from potential reviewers of individual volumes on the list. However, the journal does not accept unsolicited reviews. The review editors can be contacted at reviews@peritia.ie.
