About Peritia

Peritia is an international peer-reviewed Medieval Studies journal published by Brepols. While Peritia has a core strength in Early Medieval Irish and Insular Studies, this is not exclusivist; other areas of research, related to the Medieval West, are well-represented. The journal has published ground-breaking articles in archaeology, computistics, hagiography, history, law, literature and music.

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 double 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.
