Historische Sprachforschung is an annual peer-reviewed academic journal covering Indo-European historical linguistics. It was established by Adalbert Kuhn in 1852 as the Zeitschrift für vergleichende Sprachforschung (Journal of Comparative Linguistics; colloquially referred to as Kuhns Zeitschrift) and obtained its present title in 1988. It is the second oldest linguistics journal still in publication[citation needed] and subsumes the former Beiträge zur vergleichenden Sprachforschung or Kuhn-Schleichlers Beiträge (1852-1874) and the Beiträge zur Kunde der indogermanischen Sprachen or Bezzenbergers Beiträge (1877-1906).[citation needed]

The current editors-in-chief are Martin Kümmel (University of Jena), Olav Hackstein, and Sabine Ziegler. The journal is published by Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht.
