“Lithuanian Historical Studies” (LHS) is Lithuanian Institute of History’s academic peer-reviewed (double-blind), Ferdinand Schoeningh Verlag (Brill publishers) distributed, Open Access, SCOPUS indexed periodical journal, published only in English since 1996. Its purpose is popularisation of historical research pertaining to the Lithuanian studies in Lithuania and worldwide. Thematically, the LHS’s published articles cover political, social, religious, economic and cultural aspects of the country’s and region’s history starting from the Middle Ages and until the 21st century. Special attention is paid at the complicated and controversial historical issues like, for example: the 1569 union with Poland, the role of national minorities, the periods of occupations and resistances, etc. Therefore, in order to present different perspectives and at the same time encourage constructive scholarly dialogue, in parallel to the works of prominent and young Lithuanian historians, the journal welcomes studies written by foreign authors too. Moreover, besides the scientific articles, the LHS presents new or little-known source material, book reviews, notices, and other.
