CIDEHUS (Inter-disciplinary Centre of History, Culture and Societies at the University of Évora - UID/HIS/00057/2013) is a research unit assessed by the Foundation for Science and Technology and carrying out research in the area of long-term societal change, focusing particularly on the South of Portugal and Europe.

Within its sphere of activity, it is responsible for publishing two collections Biblioteca - Estudos & Colóquios  (Library – Studies & Seminars ) and Fontes e Inventários (Sources & Inventories) in an e-book format. These collections spread the results of the Centre’s research team but are also open to external contributions in keeping with the Centre’s structural questions. To this end, open calls are extended annually to all researchers.

All papers are previously evaluated by the Editorial Commission responsible for planning the publications and subject to double blind peer review.
