Jahrbuch für Universitaetsgeschichte

The Jahrbuch fuer Universitaetsgeschichte , first published in 1998, is considered to be one of the most respected periodicals on university history. It combines special issues on topics selected by guest editors with individual articles on current research topics, source editions and working reports from university archives, miscellanea, reviews, as well as research reports.

The yearbook provides a forum for current interdisciplinary and international research on university history. It focusses on the intellectual and cultural history of universities from their beginnings in the Middle Ages up to the present, and publishes research on the history of institutions as well as articles from the perspective of the history of science, culture and persons. It is open for current discourse on European and non-European university history.
