The scientific reviewed journal Vojenská história (Military History) is a scientific journal for military history, museology and archives, which has been published since 1997. Since 1 January 2006, its publisher has been the Institute of Military History (hereinafter referred to as the "IMH") in Bratislava. It is the only scientific journal focused on military history, archives and museology in Slovakia. The purpose of the journal is to bring the latest research results in the fields related to military history, military archival science, military museology or related disciplines. At the same time, the journal’s ambition is to provide space for debate papers that are in line with the journal‘s focus. Finally, the purpose of the journal is to contribute to the education of members of the Armed Forces of the Slovak Republic, the employees of the Ministry of Defence of the Slovak Republic, as well as the professional and public audience, and to contribute to the building of historical awareness in Slovak society. The journal does not publish advertising texts. Due to its narrow thematic profile, it serves the professional purposes of the MOD, scientific institutions and educational institutions.
