Austrian History Yearbook

cover of Austrian History Yearbook, v. 47 (2016)

Founded in 1965 by R. John Rath, the Austrian History Yearbook (AHY) remains the only English-language journal devoted to the history of the territories in Central Europe that were formerly under Habsburg rule and now comprise the modern states of Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and parts of Italy, Poland, Ukraine, Romania, and Serbia. The formation of the European Union and its expansion to include many of these countries brought an upsurge of interest in the region's Habsburg heritage. Typically, each issue of the Yearbook contains an expanded version of the previous year's Kann Memorial Lecture, a forum on an important historical issue, a review article, seven to ten fully peer-reviewed articles, and approximately 40 book reviews. Daniel Unowsky is the current editor.

Austrian History Yearbook v. XLVII (2016)

This year's volume features an expanded version of Patrick J. Geary’s Kann Memorial Lecture, “Austria, the Writing of History and the Search for European Identity” as well as eight thoughtful and highly original articles.  It also contains an obituary of the economic historian Alice Teichová by Antonie Doležalová and 36 book reviews.

How to Submit to AHY

The Austrian History Yearbook is a peer-reviewed annual journal for the study of the Habsburg monarchy and the Republic of Austria. It also publishes articles dealing with the other post-1919 successor states if the work has a clear thematic link to the history of the monarchy or the Republic of Austria. It welcomes any submission that has a significant historical dimension or uses historical modes of analysis.

The language of the publication is English, but the editors will consider manuscripts in other languages. Authors submitting manuscripts in languages other than English must provide English translations checked by native English speakers prior to publication. The entire text (including quotations, notes, and other supporting material) must be typed and double-spaced with generous margins. Notes should be numbered consecutively throughout and placed in a separate section at the end of the text along with any figures or tables. Manuscripts should be no more than 30 pages in length, not counting notes, tables, figures, and other supporting material. Before a submitted article is published, it is refereed by at least two outside scholars.

If you wish to submit an article, please send an email with the article attached as a file created in a common word-processing program (Word, Pages, etc.) to the assistant editor. Electronic copies of final versions of accepted manuscripts must be submitted via email and must be formatted according to Yearbook style guidelines. A style sheet is available here.  Please note: if your article contains images, maps, figures, or other related content, you must secure all applicable permissions and submit them with your article manuscript.
