Hungarian Studies Yearbook

The Hungarian Studies Yearbook provides an English-language forum for high-quality peer-reviewed research into the Hungarian language, literature, and culture (including ethnography, ethnology, interdisciplinary cultural studies, translation studies, comparative literature based on Hungarian sources, theatre and film studies, etc.). The journal is published by one of the most important international centres of Hungarian studies, the Cluj / Kolozsvár-based scholarly community at the Faculty of Letters of the Babeș-Bolyai University (Romania), and it is supported by a prestigious body of international scholars and peer-reviewers. The HSY acts as an open-access framework for innovative research and aims at attracting a variety of critical approaches and wide-ranging perspectives on contemporary and historical Hungary, including the reception of Hungarian literature, language, and culture in various historical, cultural, geographical and social environments, different media and translations. The HSY focuses mainly on the humanities and social sciences, but periodically also publishes thematic issues that experiment with an interdisciplinary dialogue and widen the traditional perspective of Hungarian studies.

Its publishing policy includes double-blind peer-review to filter the scientifically acceptable papers and improve the quality of the manuscripts. The Hungarian Studies Yearbook is published once per year, every October. The journal adheres to the standards of the Committee on Publication Ethics: publicationethics.org/
