Since 1921 the Slovene Art History Society, established by Izidor Cankar, publishes the Art History Journal [Zbornik za umetnostno zgodovino]. The first number of the journal had Cankar as its editor. Among later editors there were France Mesesnel, France Stele, Rajko Ložar, Stane Mikuž, Nace Šumi, Stane Bernik, Samo Štefanac, and Alenka Vodnik. Published once a year, the Art History Journal presents the recent research results of art historians dealing with topics related to Slovene or international (especially regional, Italian, Croatian, Central European) art history.

The Art History Journal has a Slovene editorial board and a consulting international editorial board with members from Italy, Croatia, Austria, and the USA. Articles are accepted in Slovenian, Croatian, English, German, or Italian language and are published in their originally submitted language without translation. The archive of the Art History Journal from 1997 to the present is also available online in pdf format.

Tradition and new challenges

This scientific peer-reviewed journal has one of the longest traditions among Slovene art history publications. The publishing stopped for a brief period of time near the end of the Second World War and for a few years after the war. In 1951 the numbering of each issue of the journal re-started from the beginning.

Today the Art History Journal focuses on scientific articles and debates, as well as reviews of books on art history, reports and chronicles. The views of authors belonging to different generational perspectives and from international contexts are published in the journal covering topics from Renaissance painting and Christian Art to contemporary art and photography. The journal also follows recent academic and conceptual issues in art history theory.
