About Peritia

Peritia is an international and interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal published by Brepols. From its first appearance in 1982, Peritia has championed medieval studies in the broadest sense, consistently welcoming contributions from all 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 medieval west, are well-represented.

The majority of articles, published in Peritia, are in English but the journal has also accepted submissions in German and French. Potential contributors are encouraged to submit their manuscripts to the editors via e-mail to editors@peritia.ie. 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 blind-refereed to ensure academic integrity.

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 editors welcome expressions of interest from potential reviewers of individual volumes on the list. However, the journal does not accept unsolicited reviews.
