About Journal Ostium

The scientific quarterly Ostium is a peer-reviewed online journal within the scope of Arts & Humanities including philosophy, psychology, history, history of art, etc. Since the origin of the journal in 2005, the main aim of it is to publish creditable scientific papers. That is why all articles received are anonymously peer-reviewed by two reviewers (scholars in a discipline). The reviewer’s references are the most essential indicator of the article’s publishability for the editorial team.

Our journal does not levy any charges from authors to process or publish a paper. Authors yield copyright and publishing rights to the publisher. This is an open access journal which means that all content is freely available without charge to the user or his/her institution. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. This is in accordance with the BOAI definition of open access.

In the journal, papers are divided into three categories and several sections:

The first and main category corresponds with the scientific part of the journal. In this part, there are published scientific articles, essays, significant individual’s profiles, specialized translations and scientific book reviews. In addition, sometimes there is attached a special section called Supplementum (miscellaneous different types of texts).

The second category—Art & Critique—is generally reserved for articles about art and literature. This category is divided into several sections, too, according to the type of papers.

The third category is InfoScience, which includes short reports from scientific the world.
