About the Journal

Aims & Scope

The Eastern European Journal of Transnational Relations (EEJTR) is published by the Faculty of Law, University of Białystok, Poland. Located as it is on the eastern border of the European Union, Białystok provides the EU with a natural window to the East which in turn compliments the journal’s overall mission.

The EEJTR is devoted to the study of the politics, societies, economies, laws and foreign relations of central and eastern European countries (including post-Soviet states) and western European countries. By extension, it also embraces North America and therewith provides a very real opportunity to broaden the conduit of academic transfer that spans the Atlantic.

The journal seeks submissions across a broad spectrum of topics. These include, but are not limited to: state-society relations, law, economics, elections, democratization, foreign policy, criminal justice and migration. Both theoretical and practical submissions are expected.

The journal is dedicated to publications from the social sciences, as well as other related or interdisciplinary fields, as long as they reflect the journal’s mission.

Although the Journal does not support a regular book review section, nevertheless it will occasionally publish reviews of important new works that become available.

The first two volumes of the EEJTR were founded by the Santander Universidades programme.

From 2019 to 2020, the Journal has been granted financial support from the Ministry of Science and Higher Education within the „Support for scientific periodicals” program with the amount of 69.645,00 PLN (Agreement number 403/WCN/2019 of July 16, 2019).

The EEJTR is scored 20 points in the Ministerial List of Journals. Index Copernicus Value (ICV) 2019: 95.05 (2018: 79.09).
