About us

The Jahresberichte für deutsche Geschichte list German- and foreign-language academic publications - until the publishing year 2015. This is the most comprehensive subject bibliography of its kind. Monographs, edited volumes (including individual contributions), periodical articles, source editions, reference works and bibliographies were registered. If possible, literature that is not distributed via the publication market is also included. Works in neighbouring disciplines as well as the historical ancillary sciences were taken into account if relevant to German history.




Only a limited range of literature pertaining to local history is admitted. In order to obtain a complete bibliography, searchers in these areas are advised to also consult the respective regional bibliographies or the meta-search engine Virtuelle Deutsche Landesbibliographie.


Cataloguing is closely geared to the standard German cataloguing rules for academic libraries (Regeln für die alphabetische Katalogisierung in wissenschaftlichen Bibliotheken, RAK-WB).
