J@rgonia is an electronic, peer-reviewed open access journal that publishes scholarly articles concerning ethnology, history and related fields. It was established in 2003 by the Department of History and Ethnology (Hela) at the University of Jyväskylä. J@rgonia is published by Historian ja etnologian laitoksen tutkijat ry (Registered Association of Hela Researchers), established in 2009. Our journal is ranked on the Finnish scientific Publication Forum (level 1).
J@rgonia is published twice a year. Its main scope is to publish articles written by postgraduate students studying culture, history and folklore or related fields. Articles are published in Finnish and in English. English-language translation and/or proofreading is the sole responsibility of the author. The editorial board is responsible for editing content only, and will return to authors manuscripts whose language does not meet J@rgonia's standards, asking them to have the language checked before resubmitting the article. Every article goes through a double-blind referee-process, in which two anonymous readers read and comment on the article before publication. The reviewer and author identities are concealed from each other throughout the review process.
We kindly ask referees to include one of the following recommendations in their statement:
- Publish in its current form
- Publish after minor revisions (with required correction as an attachment)
- Publish after major revisions (with required correction as an attachment)
- Reject the article
Evaluation is based on the following criteria:
- Does the article include proper research question and relevant context(s)?
- Does it include proper theoretical and methodological framework and their application on the analysis?
- Is the article relevant, novel and original? Does it add something new to its field?
- Does the article meet the standards of peer-reviewed journal article including good language and clear structure with sufficient amount of subheadings?
The editorial board of the publication reserves the right to evaluate and decide which articles will be published, based on the referee statements.
