Call for Papers
Deadline for submissions: 15 August 2019
As part of the digitization projects „Digital Consolidation of Collections and Documentation of German-Language Periodicals From Eastern Europe“ and "Jewish German-language Periodicals" a comprehensive four-part bibliography on periodical publications by German-speaking minorities in Eastern Europe was prepared at the Library and Electronic Research Infrastructure Division: more than 5,600 newspapers, magazines, almanacs and yearbooks from the 18th to the 21st century were recorded in three inventory bibliographies. The specialist bibliography lists more than 1,500 titles of research works from the distant and recent past on the German press in Eastern Europe, thus documenting the current state of research. The publication of bibliographic details in digital format enables a regular update and extension as well as references to the latest digital copies via hyperlink.
Albert Weber: Bibliographie deutschsprachiger Periodika aus dem östlichen Europa [Bibliography of German-Language Periodicals from Eastern Europe].
The preparation of this four-part bibliography was supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media following a resolution by the German Bundestag.
