In 2013, „Z Badań nad Książką i Księgozbiorami Historycznymi” [Studies into the History of the Book and Book Collections] was included in the list of scientific journals of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education (list B) with the number of 9 points for publication on its pages.

The annual was created as a result of the transformation of the publishing series, published under the title „Z Badań nad Polskimi Księgozbiorami Historycznymi” [Studies into the History of the Book and Book Collections], founded in the mid-seventies on the initiative of professor Barbara Bieńkowska PhD, DSc. The original idea of the publishing house was very modest - it was about creating a forum for announcing the effects of research carried out by a group of students of the editor and people associated with her seminar and scientific work. It turned out, however, that the series met with a positive response from the environment and that the first three issues did not exhaust the "supply" of works. In this way, the series has developed, gaining among researchers of the book in Poland the opinion of a serious scientific venture.

Appearing approximately every year volumes, from the fourth issue on, took on a thematic character - each had the task of grouping articles related to a specific, but quite broadly delineated research topic. Barbara Bieńkowska edited the series she had created until the early nineties, publishing fifteen volumes. When she retired, she handed the series over to professor Józef Wojakowski, who gave up on the idea of completing the thematic volumes. After over a two year break, which was ended by the general reform of the publishing house, conducted by professor Jacek Soszyński PhD, DSc, a magazine was established, which mission is to simultaneously continue the thought and intentions of the founder of the series and expand the range of interests, providing a forum for the presentation of individual and team achievements, and discussions on the history of the manuscript and printed book culture from the earliest times up to the present day. From October 2016, the journal is being led by the current editorial team.
