About the Journal
Early Modern Low Countries (EMLC) is a leading multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed, open access journal dedicated to the study of the early modern Low Countries. We publish state-of-the-art scholarship on any aspect of the turbulent history of this region between 1500 and 1830, from a variety of perspectives.
The editorial board welcomes original research manuscripts of 8,000 words. We particularly invite early career scholars to submit their work. EMLC offers additional support throughout the editorial process, including feedback from the editors and professional copy-editing by our in-house English language editor. All submissions are reviewed by the editors within two months, and if deemed suitable undergo a double-blind peer-review process. We typically return the peer review reports within six months of submission.
EMLC appears in two annual installments. The journal has its origins in a cooperation between two former journals on the Low Countries, De Zeventiende Eeuw and De Achttiende Eeuw. You can visit the archives of DZE here and those of DAE here.
