The first issue of "Klio" was published in November 2001. It was launched as a continuation of "Acta Universitatis Nicolai Copernici. Seria: Historia", a journal that Nicolaus Copernicus University had published before. The change was necessary to face the needs of the contemporary milieu of professional historians in Torun.
An internet site became a natural supplement of the publishing. The site makes the information about "Klio"’s issues (i.e. comprehensive table of contents, summaries) and authors (biographical entries), who contributed to the Journal, accessible to the wide range of scholars.
From the beginning of 2013, "Klio" can be found on the Nicolaus Copernicus University Open Journal Systems.
We invite the scholarly community to join us in a dialogue and exchange of ideas on the broad range of questions preoccupying the historical sciences today. We trust that the electronic version of "Klio" will serve these purposes and also expand the range of the contributions we receive.
Last but not least, we want to inform You that "Klio" is granted with 13 points by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education and is indexed in ERIH PLUS.
