Journal of European Integration History

Zeitschrift für die Geschichte der Europäischen Integration


The Journal of European Integration History provides a forum for research on the European integration process in all its aspects: political, military, economic, technological, social, and cultural. It focusses on contributions covering specific unification projects since 1945, but also publishes works on their precursors and preparations. The journal is published twice a year. There are themed as well as “open” issues; in addition, reviews of relevant new publications are included in each issue. The contributions of an international group of authors are published in English, French or German.

The JEIH is aimed at historians and political scientists.

Since 2013, the journal has been included in Scopus.

Review Process

Authors wishing to submit a piece to the journal, should send it to

Manuscripts are accepted in English, French and German and should not exceed 55,000 characters all including.

Reviews for the JEIH are each conducted by two members of the Groupe de Liaison. These reviewers are specialists in European integration history and university professors, most of whom hold a Jean Monnet chair.

If articles are submitted that address specific, unusual topics which the members of our editorial staff know little about, external experts will be asked to review them. The review takes the form of a ‘double-blind’ process, which means the peer reviewers do not know who the author is, and the author does not find out who has conducted the review of their work. Subsequent to the review, our secretarial office will compile an anonymous summary of the reviewers’ comments, which will then be forwarded to the author. If the reviewers’ evaluations differ, the editor’s secretarial office will select a third reviewer from either within or outside the Groupe de Liaison.

There are basically three possible review outcomes:

a) the manuscript is accepted (with or without changes being suggested/corrections);

b) the manuscript is accepted conditionally, i.e. the author must revise it according to the peer reviewers’ comments;

c) the manuscript is rejected (for example, in the case of plagiarism).
