Edited by the Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS), Regensburg, Germany

Main editors: Ulf Brunnbauer, Konrad Clewing

Südost-Forschungen invites scholars to submit contributions from all areas of the history of Southeastern Europe for its two upcoming issues (volumes 83 and 84). The submission deadline for volume 83 is 30 June 2024, for volume 84 30 November 2024.

Südost-Forschungen is one of the oldest periodical publications on the history of Southeastern Europe. Its first volume appeared in 1936, and the journal, which appears as a yearbook, has since developed into one of the leading publishing organs of German and international research on the history of Southeastern Europe. For the coming year, Suedost-Forschungen plans to switch from one yearbook to two issues per year.

Südost-Forschungen is committed to a broad and interdisciplinary approach to history and publishes on topics ranging from political issues and cultural, linguistic, and art history to economic and social history, historical geography, and the history of religion. The journal endeavours to cover the region’s history from the Byzantine era to contemporary history. Part of the journal’s mission is to present research from the region to an international audience, thus serving as a platform for excellent regional scholarship. This objective is also reflected in the journal’s extensive review section, in which numerous works in the languages of the region are discussed.

After preliminary consideration by the editorial team, contributions submitted to Südost-Forschungen will undergo a double-blind process by two peer reviewers. The journal accepts manuscripts in German, English, and French. While most research articles are stand-alone papers, the journal also invites submissions for a special thematic section, which usually consists of three to four research articles linked by an overarching theme.

The maximum length of articles is 10,000 words (including notes). In addition to research articles, the journal accepts detailed review articles and reflections on current research trends and the region’s historiography (in the section “Aus der Südosteuropa-Forschung”). Occasionally, the journal publishes edited sources and commentaries.

If you have any questions or wish to submit a manuscript, please get in touch with Dr. Peter Mario Kreuter ( The journal is happy to provide (potential) authors with feedback at an early stage.
