European Review of History - Revue européenne d’histoire

The European Review of History – Revue européenne d’histoire is glad to announce the first edition of its annual translation/language editing prize for young scholars. The £500 prize will be awarded to a non-native speaker of English or French, going towards the cost of translation or language editing of an article of outstanding quality that falls within the scope of the journal (more details).

Young scholars can send in their papers in any European language other than English or French, which will be put through one round of blind peer review in the original language insofar as possible. The prize will enable the winner to afford a professional translation or editing of their work into French or English. The translated article (in English or French) will undergo a second round of peer review before publication.

Conditions for participation:

  • Only young scholars can participate (doctoral students or postdocs max. 5 years after PhD defence);
  • The article needs to be research-based (not in the category of historiography or review essay);
  • Word length between 7,000 and 9,000 words;
  • The article can already have been published in its original language (and duly acknowledge the fact);
  • Articles should be submitted in Word, as attachment to an email directed to ‎‎. Apart from the article, we ask for a short abstract of 350 words maximum, as well as a motivational letter, explaining why you think this article should be published in the European Review of History – Revue européenne d’histoire.
