History of the Journal

In 1978 the Committee of Historical Science of the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN) decided to create a new foreign-language scientific journal dealing with broadly conceived marine problems. Professor Maria Bogucka was appointed the first editor-in-chief of the Journal (published in English, German and French) and the Editorial Staff was composed of representatives of several Polish academic centres, including Szczecin and Gdańsk. 

Thanks to the development of the last two centres mentioned above in the mid-1990s their involvement in the Journal grew significantly and they became its co-publishers. At that time professor Edward Włodarczyk was appointed the editor-in-chief and he held the post until the end of 2016, when he was replaced by professor Adam Makowski. On some ocassions the Pedagogical Academy of Słupsk co-operated with the Journal, too. Since that time the Journal has been concentrated on research into maritime economy, marine culture and the history related somehow to marine problems. The dominant group of authors have become scholars from Baltic academic centres, mainly Polish, German and Swedish. In 2011-2016 the Journal «Studia Maritima» was published by the Committee of Historical Science and Szczecin University. Since 2017 Szczecin University has been the only publisher. 


"Studia Maritima", published once a year, is an interdisciplinary journal, which presents results of a wide range of research into marine problems. The pages of the Journal are open for specialists in many fields: history and archeology, as well as related humanities disciplines, and social, economic, legal, biological and medical sciences, and the arts.

The range of topics is also broad: research into seas and oceans, seaside or coastal regions and areas of influence between the two

The Journal welcomes articles of various character: analytical and comparative, as well as case studies, which present the latest achievements in diverse fields such as marine archaeology, the history of naval armaments, maritime policy, present-day global problems concerning local coastal communities, etc.
