The Journal aims to be a leading online and open access publication that covers various aspects of environmental history in the broadest sense of the word. Emphasis is upon studies which focus on the historical relations between environmental changes and the social-historical context. Interregional and international comparative articles are getting special attention. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the discipline, papers should be easy-to-read for all disciplines of the field, which ensures their accessibility to a wider audience as well.
To ensure scientific quality, JHES follows a strict double-blind peer-review procedure. Geographically, the Journal is primarily – but not exclusively - focusing on NW-Europe including areas that had historical relations with that broad region. Articles with a more general geographic scope can also be published in the Journal. The articles are published in English, French or German. Articles in French and German must have an extended English summary and should be introduced by a bilingual (English and French or German) abstract. In the latter case, the subtitles from the illustrations need to be bilingual as well.
To meet the highest standards of academic quality, JHES uses a double-blind peer review undertaken by an external specialist appointed by the Board
