Germanistik Online Datenbank

Germanistik is the central international journal on the study of German Language and Literature, including peripheral fields. Now fifty years of German philology - the history of the discipline both systematized and critically reviewed in more than 60,000 abstracts - are available online and fully searchable. The online edition provides extensive indexing and factual coverage for every entry to quickly supply users with information on the content of the respective book or article. The database provides a category-specific and detailed search providing differentiated and convenient access to authors, editors, article and review writers, titles, reviews and publication years. From its 20th year (1979) onward, Germanistik also provides keywords. All relevant data is cross-linked. (Updated annually)
