German Studies Review publishes articles and book reviews on the history, literature, culture, politics of the German-speaking areas of Europe encompassing primarily, but not exclusively, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Read by historians, literary scholars, film scholars, musicologists, art historians, and political scientists, the journal is distinguished by its interdisciplinary orientation and particularly interested in cultural studies approaches. The journal appears three times each year, in February, May, and October. Articles and reviews are published in English or German. Each issue contains scholarly articles and book reviews, including a review essay. German Studies Review is the official journal of the German Studies Association (GSA), and members receive an annual subscription as a benefit of membership.

German Studies Review is a journal of first publication, and all submissions are peer-reviewed (double-blind review). Manuscripts previously published, in press, or concurrently under consideration by another journal or publisher (including electronic publication) will not be considered; the same applies to author interviews or translations. The articles should be between 6,000-9,000 words in length (including endnotes). A house style sheet can be downloaded as a PDF from this website; compliance with the style sheet is a precondition of final acceptance. PhD students with ABD status are welcome to submit their unpublished research directly to the journal. All graduate students are eligible for the GSA Prize for the Best Essay in German Studies by a Graduate Student, with the winner to be published in the GSR.
