The Czech Historical Review under Jaroslav Pánek
Languages of publication
This article analyzes the Czech Historical Review in the years 2003-2016 when the author, together with Jaroslav Pánek, has been its editor.Focusing on Pánek´s specific contribution to the review, he indentifes the major challenges the journal had to face during this period; due to the impact of the internet and new, government-based evaluation system of the humanities it witnessed a dramatic change in publishing culture. In consequence, despite maximum efforts by the editors to ensure continuity, the content structure of the review changed visibly: moving away from traditionally strong Middle Ages, many more articles nowadays are focusing on the modern period. The review thus reflects the strong topical fragmentation and narrowing horizon of modern -day Czech historiography in general. Pánek´s main success as editor, therefore, is to have succeeded in broadening and strengthening the review´s international relations and its structural modernization.
