Description: Central European History offers articles, review essays, and book reviews that range widely through the history of Germany, Austria, and other German-speaking regions of Central Europe from the medieval era to the present. All topics and approaches to history are welcome, whether cultural, social, political, diplomatic, intellectual, economic, and military history, as well as historiography and methodology. Contributions that treat new fields, such as post-1945 and post-1989 history, maturing fields such as gender history, and less-represented fields such as medieval history and the history of the Habsburg lands are especially desired. The journal thus aims to be the primary venue for scholarly exchange and debate among scholars of the history of Central Europe.

Description: Transit deals with problems and themes which, through the connection and confrontation of western and eastern European experiences and perspectives, have become interesting (again). The name of the journal means, first, a crossing, a movement over and across boundaries. We regard this as our programme, and we do not mean only political boundaries: inner multiplicity and contradiction are just as much elements of the European idea as the exchange with other cultures. Transit sees itself as a European journal according to this open and never-concluded identity which lives from the transgression of its own mental horizons, from a curiosity about differences and the readiness for debate. Transit means, secondly, a precarious interim condition, a transitory place of rest. In view of the great problems of our time, we do not need the number magic of the turn of the millennium to grasp that we too, in the West, are living in a critical time of transition.

Description: "Studies in Contemporary History" is based on a broad understanding of "contemporary history", encompassing three separate, but overlapping time periods. Central problems of the first half of the century will be addressed to the extent that they are relevant for a historically grounded understanding of long-range issues (e.g. war-crimes, migration, and xenophobia). The central focus of the journal will nonetheless be the decades of German, European and global conflicts between 1945 and 1990, because they constitute the most important experiences of persons alive today. Beyond that we would also like to provide a forum for current history, since scholarly reflection on the most recent past does not have to begin with the release of previously closed files. Beset by new wars, international terrorism, the contraction of the welfare state and other threats, people have a great need for orientation, which is also one of the responsibilities of contemporary historical research.
