The Central European Journal Of Social Sciences And Humanities (CEJSH) was established in Visegrad on 27 October 2004, in accordance with a joint decision taken in Prague on 31 October 2003 by the Presidents of the Czech Academy of Sciences, the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN), the Slovak Academy of Sciences and by the Secretary General of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
The objective was to establish an electronic, open-access database publishing English abstracts of articles and reviews that appear mostly in national languages in scientific journals devoted to social sciences and humanities in Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovak Republic as well as in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Serbia, Slovenia, and Ukraine. In so doing the Academy Presidents aimed to boost the international visibility of scientific publications, which are frequently insufficiently well-known - even among close neighbors - in view of the language barrier and the limited circulation of most national journals.
The Polish Academy of Sciences as the organizer and coordinator of CEJSH activities encourages all interested scholars to visit the CEJSH website at cejsh.icm.edu.pl and to acquaint themselves with the constantly expanding number of journals.
Publication of abstracts and other metadata is handled in cooperation with the Interdisciplinary Center for Mathematical and Computational Modeling of Warsaw University (ICM). The CEJSH is administered by its International Editorial and Publishing Board, composed of:
