History of Baltic-Pontic Studies (BPS)

Baltic-Pontic-Studies is a yearbook published since 1993 together by two institutes of the Adam Mickiewicz University (UAM) in Poznań, Poland: the Institute of Archaeology (until 2017: Institute of Prehistory) and the Institute of Eastern Studies. The idea of a journal that would present in English the effects of the archaeological work concentrated on the biocultural borderland between the West and East of Europe. Seats on the Editorial Board were accepted by distinguished scholars of 'archaeology of the borderland' from the academic centres of Poland, Ukraine and Belarus. Under the mode of operations adopted at the BPS, stimuli for new volume are given by members of the Editorial Board. They suggest crucial research issues, calling for a discussion and then presentation in the form of a set of papers or monographs, and outline the best ways to undertake their studies further. First, the Editorial Board members choose a team of potential contributors and, second, decide on the forms of collaboration and sources of financing; the latter usually come in the form of grants. Thus, BPS volumes carry exclusively commissioned papers. BPS is on the ERIH list. Moreover, we are pleased to inform that BPS volumes currently out of print (1-20) are available online at the Adam Mickiewicz University Repository (AMUR): repozytorium.amu.edu.pl. Starting with volume 20, the BPS is also available on the De Gruyter Open platform.
