About the Journal

Lidé města / Urban People is an international peer-reviewed journal of social and cultural anthropology, with a specific focus on topics related to urban anthropology. The journal’s goal is to foster high-standard and ethically responsible academic research, the dissemination of findings and knowledge, and academic discussions. It is issued three times per year: twice in Czech and/or Slovak language (issues 1 and 3) and once in English (issue 2).

The journal particularly welcomes ethnographic and qualitative studies pertinent to the area of research, but is also open to other methodological and (inter)disciplinary approaches and perspectives that fit the journal’s goals. Besides original theoretical and empirical research, Lidé města / Urban People also publishes review articles, book reviews, and academic reports and news. Occasionally, academic editions of relevant primary sources and discussions may appear on the journal’s website.

Lidé města / Urban People journal was established in 1999, and it has been the only regularly published journal in social and cultural anthropology in the Czech Republic. It is issued by the Faculty of Humanities of Charles University, Prague, the oldest university in Central Europe. The journal is governed by two independent editorial boards (one for the Czech/Slovak issues, and the other one for the English version), whose members are internationally recognized scholars in the field of social and cultural anthropology and related disciplines.

The journal Lidé města / Urban People is simultaneously published in a print version and online in an open-access format. The journal is fully indexed in Czech biographical databases, and in the international scientometric and bibliographic databases ERIH, CEEOL, and EBSCO.
