The first issue of Borec ("Warrior") appeared in 1949. It was founded by the Union of Associations of World War II veterans, antifascist fighters, and members of the National Liberation Struggle (NLS) of Slovenia in December 1948 and published by Borec publishing house and later on by Mladika. From 1993 to 2013 the journal was published by the Association for the Research of History, Anthropology and Literature, afterwards the Sophia Publishing House took over its publication. The journal is published on a quarterly basis.

Borec features articles and studies in the fields of contemporary history, anthropology, and literature as well as historical material. The period of World War II forms the core interest of the journal with in-depth analyses of social reality as seen through the interpretive lens of historical memory. The website provides access to English abstracts of the contributions.


In 1993 the Association for the Research of History, Anthropology and Literature replaced Mladika Publishing House as publisher and reconceived Borec as an interdisciplinary journal addressing contemporary social quandaries. The evolution from a veterans' gazette to a literary and scientific journal is rooted in the respect for its tradition of antifascist resistance in terms of class struggle and social transformation. Today Borec is published by the Sophia Publishing House.
