THE JOURNAL: Aims and Scopes

RiMe. Rivista dell’Istituto di Storia dell’Europa Mediterranea (ISSN: 2035-794X) is a refereed, open access journal, founded by the Istituto di Storia dell'Europa Mediterranea (ISEM) - Institute of History of Mediterranean Europe - of the italian National Research Council (CNR) which publishes empirical research, historiographic overviews and methodological focuses in the field of the History of Europe and the Mediterranean, from the Middle Ages to the Contemporaneity.

Each volume of RiMe has a different ISBN number and a DOI is assigned to each booklet and each paper of the Journal.

RiMe targets scholars from different countries, bodies and research groups in formal, non-formal and informal contexts, in order to promote and support their collaboration around common scientific interests on themes and issues related to the historical identities of Mediterranean Europe and their external projections. The Journal is multidisciplinary and brings together methodologies and critical paths in the field of Humanities and it is open especially to contributions from disciplines such as History (Medieval, Modern and Contemporary), Literature and Social Sciences. RiMe is intended as a place for reflection for an audience of specialists, and, at the same time, as a tool for disseminating the results of research in civil society.
