German Studies Review seeks articles that make a fresh contribution to knowledge. All submissions are peer-reviewed "double-blind" by experts on the particular subject of the contribution. A major consideration in determining whether an article should be published is to what extent it will appeal to the readership of German Studies Review. Since the journal embraces several disciplines, articles should avoid highly specialized jargon understandable only to experts in a particular field. German Studies Review seeks to engage readers interested in all of the disciplines of German Studies.

German Studies Review is a journal of first publication. Manuscripts previously published, in press, or concurrently under consideration by another journal or publisher (including electronic publication) will not be considered. This applies to the substance as well as the wording of the manuscript or translations from another language. German Studies Review publishes neither author interviews nor translations. Any republication requires written permission by the Editor (which is usually granted) and must not go into print before the appearance of the article in German Studies Review, which holds the copyright.
