Historia altera

Every present has its own way of seeing the past. It interprets and evaluates it from the perspective of the here and now, believing it recognises developments and divisive and unifying aspects. It wants to find these even where no real development was apparent, where assumed continuities are debatable and where discontinuities perhaps more likely express permanence. Thus, the preoccupation with the past is always a reflection of the present. A new present with different premises and convictions may hold different things as important, may believe it sees the hidden, may judge and assess previous events differently.

In the series Historia altera, papers are published which particularly question our knowledge of European history, extend and amend it and which devote themselves to previously neglected aspects of it.

Publishing information

Please send manuscript submissions to our acquisition managers or to the editor of the series. Submissions must be original texts (no translations) which must not be previously published. During the review process, manuscripts may not be submitted elsewhere. Monographs must be complete and fully finished. For multi-authored volumes contact us as early as possible with details of the planned contributions. In initial submissions, our publication guidelines or citation rules do not have to be strictly followed.

All submissions are subjected to peer review. The review process can result in acceptance, the recommendation of revisions or rejection of the project. You will be informed of the decision by email. We attempt to reach a decision within 3 months of the submission of the manuscript.

Your manuscript has been accepted for Historia altera, you have your publishing contract in your hand, and now you would like to know what happens next? Here you can download a guide which will give you an overview of the book-making process and information on the citation styles of our series. Every project is different, however, and we prefer tailor-made solutions to standardisation down to the last detail. So, if you have any questions, please write to us or give us a call.
