CPHRC Editorial Services grew out of the Contemporary Portuguese History Research Centre (CPHRC), which was formed in 1998 to exploit the Internet to provide access to high-quality documentation and resources on the history of the Portuguese republic. Our aim, back in those early days of the Internet, was to make this information available in English. CPHRC Editorial Services was created to offer our translation expertise on a commercial basis as a means of funding the research centre.


CPHRC Editorial Services has been involved in producing the Portuguese Journal of Social Science, a peer-reviewed English-language journal published by Intellect Books on behalf of the Lisbon University Institute (ISCTE-IUL) since its foundation in 2000. Our role is to ensure the maintenance of editorial excellence and to liaise between the editorial board, the authors and the publishers.


    The Contemporary Portuguese Political History Research Centre was established in September 1998 as a means of using the global reach of the Internet to provide a store of documentary material related to the history of the Portuguese Republic — to use the new technologies to facilitate and promote the study of Portugal.


    A double-blind peer-reviewed multidisciplinary academic journal published by Intellect Books on behalf of the Lisbon University Institute (ISCTE-IUL) three times a year. The PJSS is an English-language journal that brings the best of Portugal, about Portugal or by Portuguese scholars to a truly international audience. Since it was first published in 2002, the PJSS has established itself as a journal of reference in each of the social science disciplines. It is currently edited by Luís Nuno Rodrigues.
