The Zeitschrift für Ostmitteleuropa-Forschung (English: "Journal for East Central European Studies") is a quarterly peer-reviewed academic journal covering the history and culture of Eastern Europe. It is published by the Herder-Institut für historische Ostmitteleuropaforschung (English: "Herder Institute for Historical Research on East Central Europe"; Marburg) and the editors-in-chief are Heidi Hein-Kircher and Anna Veronika Wendland.[1][2]

History[edit]

The journal was established in 1952 under the title Zeitschrift für Ostforschung ("Journal for Research on the East") with Hermann Aubin, Herbert Schlenger, and Erich Keyser as editors.[2] Until 1969, the journal was published by Elwert Verlag, but moved in 1994 to the Herder-Institut, obtaining its current name.[3]

Scope[edit]

The journal covers research on the history and culture of Poland, Slovakia, Belarus, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and the Russian enclave Kaliningrad. Besides scientific essays and miscellanea it also contains reviews and research reports. Furthermore, up to two of the four annual issues are guest-edited special issues. Reviews are available online for free.[1]
