e-Journal of Portuguese History (e-JPH)

The e-Journal of Portuguese History (e-JPH) is an international peer-reviewed scholarly journal with the objective of providing publication of work on historical subjects, especially those concerning themes and topics of Portuguese history analyzed in a comparative perspective.

About the Journal

The e-JPH journal is published jointly by Brown University and the University of Porto. It was first published in the summer of 2003, with new issues released semi-annually ever since, exclusively in English and in electronic format.

It is the aim of the journal to offer new insights on developments in Portuguese historiography, as well as to provide news and information on research activities concerning Portuguese history. The ethos of e-JPH is a pluralist one, not subscribing to any particular ideological, theoretical or methodological approach.
