Prague Egyptological Studies is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal produced biannually by the Czech Institute of Egyptology, Faculty of Arts at the Charles University.
The Czech issues of the journal are being published regularly since 2002 and inform the Czech and Slovak audience about the current research in Egypt and Sudan. Starting in 2015 one of the issues of every year is being published entirely in English, focusing on studies in the history, archaeology, architecture, religion, language and art of the Third Millennium BC Egypt, with the hope of becoming one of the key scholarly journals for this period. In addition to the main archaeological emphasis, it also welcomes primary studies focusing on the wider interdisciplinary scope of Egyptology, such as North-African environmental archaeology, archaeozoology and archaeobotany, as well as new research in applied sciences. Since 2017, the journal also includes book reviews concerning recently published monographs in the above-mentioned fields.
The journal shall focus on publishing relevant excavation reports and, at the same time, will aim to publish excellent, primary-research studies focusing on selected problems connected with archaeology and interdisciplinary aspects of the Third Millennium BC Egypt. The first entirely English issue was published in 2015 [2015 (15)], followed by the second one in 2016 [2016 (17)]. The third and latest entirely English issue is 2018 (21).
In 2016, the journal was enhanced from the point of its graphic forms and equipped with a limited amount of color plates in order to publish select photos and visualisations whose value would be lost in black-and-white color.
