About the Journal

Prague Egyptological Studies (PES) is a bi-annual double-blind peer-reviewed English journal published by the Czech Institute of Egyptology, Faculty of Arts, Charles University, in Prague. The journal was published regularly since 2002 in Czech and starting from 2015 also in English. Newly since 2021, two English issues per year have been issued, dedicated to ancient Egyptian and Nubian (Sudanese) prehistory and history, from the prehistory to Late Antiquity.

The journal accepts archaeological reports as well as original studies on any aspect of ancient Egyptian and Nubian material culture, religion, language and history, or the history of Egyptology and the reception of ancient Egypt in later periods. In addition, it welcomes primary studies focusing on the wider interdisciplinary scope of Egyptology, such as environmental archaeology, archaeozoology and archaeobotany, as well as new research in applied sciences. The journal also includes book reviews on recently published monographs in the above-mentioned fields.

The journal adheres to the Open Access Policy: all contributions appear concomitantly in print and are immediately freely available to readers under the CC BY-NC-ND 2.0 license.

Full articles can be consulted and downloaded at the website of the Czech Institute of Egyptology, Faculty of Arts, Charles University, in Prague and on the website of the journal. On the scientific platform www.academia.edu, a profile of Prague Egyptological Studies was created to promote the journal in the scholarly community.
