About the Journal


NORDEUROPAforum first appeared in 1998 as a scholarly journal, at that time bearing the tagline, »Journal of Politics, Economics and Culture«. Since 2013, the subheading has changed to »Journal for the Study of Culture«. As a double-blind peer-reviewed open access journal, NORDEUROPAforum observes cultural studies of Northern Europe in Germany. We publish analyses in German and English that cover the »greater« North: our articles address Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Iceland, as well as Greenland and the Faroe Islands, the Baltic States, North-western Russia, the southern Baltic Sea area and trans-regional connections.

Publishing or submitting articles is free of charge. Your topic suggestions are always welcome!

Range of topics

By »the study of culture«, we do not mean a strictly constrained discipline with a well-defined object of study, but rather the expansion of any humanities or social sciences research through a (cultural-) historical, political and social contextualisation. Our disciplines range from literary studies and linguistics to sociology, anthropology, medieval studies, historical and political science, to media, film, and art studies – and this list is in no way exhaustive. What is important is not the subject, but the scientific quality of the article and the approach towards the region.

In addition to publishing articles, NORDEUROPAforum regularly publishes reviews and annotations of recently released scholarly publications that have a Northern European connection. We promote the German/European-Scandinavian dialog and see ourselves as a forum for the interchange of ideas in the Baltic Sea and North Atlantic regions. Through our social media channels (Facebook and Twitter), we provide timely information about the contents of our journal, as well as scholarly, cultural, and political developments.

Our editorial board is a team of ten editors and 21 staffers, who reside both in Germany and abroad.

Open Access und Quality Control

Since 2006, NORDEUROPAforum has been published exclusively as an Open Access publication on the internet. Upon positive evaluation our articles are peer-reviewed by two external experts (double-blind), before they get edited on close consultation with the author. With this type of publication, we ensure that both authors and readers have free and unrestricted access to scholarly research. Our submissions may be used without barriers and without limits. Authors’ copyrights are protected.

The publication of articles is continuous. All articles and reviews are available individually or as a collected volume published at the end of the year. They are permanently stored on the edoc-server of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.
