Named after the Dutch word for an archival file Lias French Liasse Lias has since its foundation in 1974 been a prime venue for publishing articles relating to the cultural and intellectual history of early modern Europe. We welcome original contributions on the history of knowledge and learning in the broadest sense the artes liberales the studia humanitatis philosophy theology law medicine and the new sciences as well as the Republic of Letters and the educational institutions libraries academies societies and learned networks vital to the creation and transmission of knowledge. Our chronological range extends from the nascent humanism of the 14th century to the late Enlightenment in the 19th century. While focused primarily on the history of knowledge and learning we are strongly interested in articles that explore these subjects in relation to early modern political social religious or art history.Although many articles in Lias are standalone analyses of early modern sources we are unique in encouraging our authors to include transcriptions editions and commentaries of original unpublished sources of a relatively small size up to 60 pages such as letters poems small treatises etc. in their articles. We welcome editions of texts in a wide variety of original languages such as Latin Greek French English Dutch German Hebrew and Arabic. A modern translation of the edited sources regardless of their original language is a bonus but not absolutely required. However we do ask for a synopsis of each text.Submissions are preferably written in English but we are also open to contributions in French especially concerning French sources.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
