The free access internet journal dealing with the history of Central and Eastern Europe.

Berlin Purpose of the journal

Central and Eastern European Review is an academic journal dedicated to the promotion and dissemination of historical research as it relates to Central and Eastern Europe. It recognizes that the internet is becoming ever more a means to achieve these aims.

Its scope

Geographically the journal's interests stretch from roughly Strasbourg to the Urals. Thematically, it hopes to reflect a wide diversity of historical subject matter, from diplomatic studies to the history of science, from economics to political history, from social change to intellectual and philosophical trends. Although it expects most of the publications to deal directly with Central and Eastern Europe, the editors may also consider papers addressing developments in other places which encourage a better understanding of the region. Central and Eastern European Review expects most of the contributions to be made in English language, but will consider papers in German and exceptionally Hungarian.


The journal carries fully reviewed articles as well as other communications. The latter may include brief research outlines by doctoral students as well as examples of work by 'up and coming' scholars. Central and Eastern European Review will be glad to host on-going debates which allow academics to come together and share new thinking. Individual reviews and review articles should be submitted following discussion with the editors. We also aim to carry articles from archives about their work and thoughtful reports by individuals who have witnessed historically important events first hand.budapest3


The journal is listed with a number of e-resource web sites including Intute and the Elekronische Zeitschriftenbibliotek.
