Characteristics of the Yearbook
The bilingual Jahrbuch des Dubnow-Instituts/Dubnow Institute Yearbook is published by Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, Göttingen, forms the core of the Institute's publications. It is aimed at the German- and English-speaking international scholarly public. The Yearbook is a refereed journal. Before publication, the contributions submitted undergo an anonymous review process (double-blind review), the successful completion of which is a prerequisite for inclusion in the publication.
Each issue contains one to two annually changing thematic focusi as well as a »General Section« and recurring sections (»Historians and other Scholars«, »Dubnowiana«, »From Research«, »Literature Report«). The broad survey essays and special studies deal with the history of individual Jewries in Central and Eastern Europe. »Dubnowiana« presents essays and sources on the life and work of Simon Dubnow.
Various methodological approaches are employed in the Yearbook and stand there side by side, all equal in their value for illuminating historical reality – the history of diplomacy and politics, social history, legal history, the history of science and the history of memory. The variety of approaches is in keeping with the diversity of the historical topics treated.
The Yearbook stands in the best tradition of established humanities journals through its advisory board of internationally renowned scholars, its review process, its scientific style, as well as through intensive editing and appealing presentation. The Yearbook is published by the Director of the Institute.
