Open Journal Systems (OJS) - Ruhr-Universität Bochum

Researchers of the Ruhr University Bochum can now publish e-journals and conference proceedings with the open source software Open Journal Systems (OJS).

Bochum University Library enables access to the system and helps to adapt and master the software. The library is also willing to support the entire publication process.

We require, that after a certain period, the article must be freely accessible online (open access). The library administrates the software, sets up new journal titles and secures the permanent availability of the published content and the visibility by providing a digital object identifier (DOI).

Moving the Social: Journal of Social History and the History of Social Movements

Moving the Social: Journal of Social History and the History of Social Movements is an international and peer-reviewed journal rooted in the discipline of history but with an explicit interest in work produced on social affairs and social movements by other disciplines, in particular the social sciences, geography, anthropology and ethnology. It is particularly keen to promote transnational and comparative perspectives on the history of social movements set in a wider context of social history. It appears twice yearly, with one issue on a particular theme and one thematically mixed issue. Each issue includes a comprehensive review article, one of which each year is on recent publications in social movement studies.

Kunstgeschichtliches Journal für studentische Forschung und Kritik

Als erstes studentisch organisiertes Online Journal des kunstgeschichtlichen Institutes der Ruhr-Universität Bochum wagt GA2 den Schritt aus den Vorlesungsräumen in die Öffentlichkeit. Mit GA2 stellt das kunstgeschichtliche Institut der RUB eine multimediale Plattform zur Verfügung, auf der sich die Studierenden bereits während ihrer akademischen Ausbildung publizistisch in aktuelle kunsthistorische Wissenschaftsdiskurse einschalten können. Jenseits von Seminar- und Hausarbeiten stellt sich eine heranwachsende Generation von Kunsthistorikerinnen und Kunsthistorikern neuen Textformaten um kontroverse Forschungsthesen an der Schnittstelle zu gegenwärtigen Kultur- und Gesellschaftsdebatten in verdichteter und unmittelbarer Form zu bearbeiten. Es spiegeln sich hier nicht nur die breitgefächerten Forschungsschwerpunkte des kunstgeschichtlichen Instituts wieder, GA2 soll auch Raum bieten für politisch brisante Themen und ihre Reflexion in Kunst und Kunstgeschichte.

Journal of Namibian Studies : History Politics Culture

Aims and Scope

The aim of the Journal of Namibian Studies - History Politics Culture (ISSN print 1863-5954; ISSN online 2197-5523) is to make available to an academic audience around the world scholarly work and original research of high standards in English. The journal is inter- and transdisciplinary and covers the humanities and the social sciences. As such it seeks to serve as an interface between local and international Namibianist scholars. The main objective is to ensure that debate on Namibia-related issues, for which there is generally no adequate forum, is accessible both within Namibia and internationally. Articles submitted for publication will be thoroughly and anonymously peer-reviewed. There are two issues per year, each containing four or five articles and substantial book reviews.
