Peer Review Policy

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). The languages of publication are English and German. Scholars from the fields of German Studies, history, art history, musicology, political science, anthropology, and so forth are eligible for submission; this includes PhD students with ABD status. Criteria for review include originality and coherence of argument, appropriate use of sources and methodologies, and suitability of the topic for an interdisciplinary cultural studies journal. Recommendations include accept, provisional accept, revise and resubmit, and reject, with the majority falling in the “revise and resubmit” category. The review process usually takes three months, with the time between acceptance and publication currently averaging one year.
