The scientific journal "Miscellanea Historico-Iuridica" (MHI) has been published continuously since 2003, initially as an annual, and since 2014 as a biannual. The periodical is developed by the staff of the Department of Legal-Historical Sciences, Philosophy, Theory of Law and Comparative Law from the Faculty of Law, University of Białystok. The texts published in our pages are of historical and legal nature or deal with contemporary law with a clear historical context. The journal presents texts from Roman law to the history of 20th century law. A significant part of the texts focuses on the history of the law of communist countries and the history of law in Central and Eastern Europe. In particular volumes and issues we will find the results of work of researchers from scientific and academic centres from different parts of Poland, Europe and the world, as well as recognised and prospective scientists cooperating with the Faculty of Law of the University of Białystok. An important part of each volume is made up of archival documents resulting from the research of our authors, as well as the chronicle of our Department. The individual volumes are devoted to particular themes (e.g. the Russian revolutions, the Versailles system), which are determined on the basis of demand for the study of specific topics, upcoming anniversaries of socio-legal and political events, current events and the latest trends in scholarship.
Since 2008, our periodical has been included in the list of journals evaluated by the Polish ministry responsible for higher education for the purposes of parametric evaluation of scientific units. In the latest list of 1 December 2021, our journal has been awarded 100 points.
The journal is available online with open access. The abstracts of particular articles are available online in CEEOL (Central and Eastern European Online Library), CEJSH (Central European Journal of Social Sciences and Humanities) and Index Copernicus (ICI Journals Master List) databases. The original version of Miscellanea Historico-Iuridica was in print form, since 2021 the journal has been published exclusively in electronic form.
