Zeitschrift fuer Regionalgeschichte

The Nordost-Archiv. Zeitschrift für Regionalgeschichte has published an annual volume, each dedicated to a particular thematic focus, since 1992. It is oriented toward the history of regions and relationships, as well as toward cultural studies approaches to areas in northeastern Europe where Germans and other ethnic groups lived alongside one another and together.

This strict thematic focus and coherence distinguish the Nordost-Archiv from other periodicals. An international editorial board ensures the high standards of the journal, which utilizes a double-blind peer review process.

Publishing information

Each volume is edited by guest editors responsible for planning and conception of the texts and for searching suitable authors. Submissions must be original articles (no translations) which must not be previously published. During the review process, manuscripts may not be submitted elsewhere. Please pay attention to the anonymization of your text so that your identity as author cannot be ascertained directly or indirectly (e.g. by acknowledgments and self-references in footnotes).

All submissions are subjected to double blind peer review. The review process can result in acceptance, the recommendation of revisions or rejection of the manuscript. The author is informed of the decision by email. The editors attempt to reach a decision within 3 months of the submission of the manuscript.

If a manuscript is accepted, the editors request a file with the final version. The final version includes names and acknowledgments. Also, please follow the guidelines of publisher and editors provided below.
