  • Call for Papers for Studia Celtica Fennica XVII 2020/2021

    2021-02-15

    Papers are invited for volume XVII of Studia Celtica Fennica, the peer-reviewed annual publication of the Finnish Society for Celtic Studies SFKS ry. Due to Covid-19, this volume will consist of both the years 2020 and 2021. Please note that all submissions will undergo a peer review process before we make the decision to publish.

    We welcome submissions of articles and book reviews written in all major European languages and Celtic languages as well as Finnish and Swedish. We now accept articles throughout the year, but articles should be submitted in good time in order to be published in the current year’s volume. All articles are published as soon as they have passed through our peer review and copy-editing process and therefore can be published much faster than in traditional print journals, while still possessing all the same credentials.

    If you are interested in reviewing a book for the journal, please contact us with the relevant title.

    Studia Celtica Fennica has adopted an open access policy with the volumes published online on an open access platform. Please note that the articles are submitted only through the open access platform at https://journal.fi/scf/

    For further information and submission guidelines, please consult the open access platform at https://journal.fi/scf/about/submissions

    For any enquiries, please contact the editors.

  • Important changes to how SCF is published

    2020-06-04

    Studia Celtica Fennica is changing its format in two important ways. Firstly, starting with the 2020 issue, SCF will be exclusively online. Secondly, SCF will move to a rolling publication schedule which means that articles can be published as soon as they have been through peer review and copy editing. As we have seen in recent months, the need for material that is accessible wherever and whenever to everyone is of utmost importance for the production and dissemination of high-quality scholarship. The decision was made last year to make SCF completely Open Access for all readers, a change which has been met with a great deal of enthusiasm by readers, libraries and contributors. Along with many other journals in the humanities, we have also found that our publications are accessed in far greater numbers online, especially as many universities and public libraries throughout the world now include a link to our website and all past issues in their online catalogues. As editors we want to focus our energies on continuing to grow the journal in this direction and to raise the profile of SCF through recognition by various bodies within the humanities, as we believe that this best serves our contributors and readers.

     

    The decision to move away from a print journal format has also been made specifically with our authors in mind. As an online journal, we can publish articles faster, enabling our contributors to have their work published as soon as it has been through our stringent peer-review and copy-editing process. All articles will still be part of a journal issue, have DOIs and ‘look’ like the articles previously published in the print journal. However, each article will be published on our website once it is ready, with the entire issue being completed at the end of the calendar year. We hope that this will in particular benefit early career scholars and others who need evidence of having produced quality peer-reviewed publications at a faster rate during the job application process.

     

    The move to an online format also brings with it a change to our annual deadline for articles, as we now can accept and publish articles and book reviews on a rolling basis throughout the year. Our submission process otherwise remains the same and we look forward to reading future pieces from both returning and new authors.

  • SCF going (more) Open Access

    2018-09-10

    The Board of the Finnish Society for Celtic Studies decided in our last meeting that Studia Celtica Fennica will from now on be made available online immediately upon the publication of the print journal. The previous policy was to make articles available a year after their publication in print. We want to follow recent trends in Open Access publishing and make SCF articles freely available as soon as possible. We think that this is particularly important for a small subject the students and practitioners of which are often scattered in universities with limited access to Celtic Studies materials (such as ourselves in Helsinki). The print version will remain available as before.
