Scientific series by Peeters Publishers

Since its inception, the Academy has published high-quality scientific work in a number of long-term scientific series. Since 2014 the publication of these series has been entrusted to Peeters Publishers. The KVAB welcomes high quality manuscripts for publication in some of these series. Separate editorial boards within the Academy monitor the scientific quality by means of a formalized peer review process that complies with the requirements of the VABB and stimulates new publications.
