The first issue of Orientalia Suecana appeared in 1952. Its founder was Erik Gren (1904–1959), Reader in Classical History and Archaeology at Uppsala University and librarian at the University Library. The journal succeed to the journal Le Monde Oriental, published in Uppsala in years 1906–1946. Most of the contributions in the early volumes were primarily philological, with a wider view towards historical, and especially religious-historical issues. More recently, besides the articles dealing with antiquity, Orientalia Suecana has published numerous studies on present-day topics and phenomena. While maintaining its philological focus on texts, the journal is open to linguistic and literary researches in the fields of Semitic, Iranian, Turkic, Indic, and Chinese studies.
Orientalia Suecana is a peer-reviewed yearbook. Manuscripts submitted to Orientalia Suecana normally are sent to two readers, one of whom may be a member of the journal’s editorial board. Reviewers evaluate the paper based on such criteria as the importance of the topic, the originality of the research, the methodology of the author(s), and the quality and clarity of the writing. The reviewers recommend to the editors whether the paper should be accepted substantially as is, accepted with modifications, returned for rewriting and a second round of reviews, or rejected. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the editors to decide whether to accept or reject a paper. It is understood that acceptance of a manuscript is conditional until the editors consider the paper ready for publication and explicitly communicate this to the author.
