Scholar requirements

The articles, materials and reviews should meet the problems and the profile of the journal, which can be verified in the previous issues, and be in the field of ethnology, folklore, anthropology or history.

Bulgarian Ethnology publishes scholar articles in Bulgarian language.

The text must be original and not previously published in Bulgarian or another language.


Each article is subjected to peer reviewing by two independent scholars who are not members of the Editorial Board and are well established experts in the respective research field. The reviewing is based on the double blind principle: both the reviewers and the author of the article remain anonymous to each other. The articles are evaluated according to their original scientific input, good argumentation of the thesis, style and language. 

The final decision referring the publishing of the article is made by the Editorial Board taking into account the evaluation and recommendations of the reviewers. 

No manuscripts are returned to their authors.


The Editorial Board of Bulgarian Ethnology works hard to provide up-to-date, rich and professionally presented information at a high academic level. At the same time we share the opinion that the content of published materials is the exclusive right and responsibility of their authors. That does not exclude editorial interference when necessary and when required by the interest of the audience of Bulgarian Ethnology. The expression of whatsoever views and standpoints which are in disagreement with the Bulgarian Law or the publication ethics of the journal is not accepted.
