The current editors of Polata Knigopisnaia adopted an editorial-board peer review system for contributions beginning with volume 38. All contributions that the editors consider to fit the scope and criteria of PK will be reviewed anonymously by two members of the editorial board.


Polata knigopisnaja: An informational bulletin devoted to the study of early Slavic books, texts and literatures was founded by William R. Veder (University of Nijmegen, The Netherlands) and Mario Capaldo (University of Rome, Italy) in 1978. They generously allowed all past issues accessible freely via the internet through the Hilandar Research Library and The Ohio State University Libraries (Columbus, Ohio). From its 2006 issue PK has been available exclusively on-line through the OSU Knowledge Bank.
