About this Journal

GENEALOGY+CRITIQUE (G+C) is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal focusing on genealogical research and a broad conception of critical theory. Combining historical and systematic forms of inquiry, it fosters critical analyses of the present written in plain English, German, or French. The interdisciplinary journal also aims at confronting historical-genealogical and critical theory approaches with concepts and methods in more recent fields of knowledge such as media studies, digital humanities, design research, or science and technology studies.

The journal's publisher, the Open Library of Humanities (OLH), is a nonprofit organization financed by an international consortium of academic institutions. Due to its noncommercial orientation, the OLH does not charge any author fees. All articles published in G+C are peer-reviewed, available open access under the Creative Commons license CC BY 4.0, indexed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (among other databases), and archived for the long term in HTML, PDF, and XML. For details on the submission process, please check the applicable guidelines. On average, one third of the submitted articles are accepted for publication (usually after several revisions).

The journal is published as a continuous volume and issue throughout the year. Articles go online as soon as they are ready to avoid unnecessary delays in making knowledge publicly available. Special Collections are published as part of the normal volumes, but also on separate web pages. G+C is edited by Simon Ganahl, Maurice Erb, Stephanie Marx, Sergej Seitz, and Anna Wieder, who are supported by an Advisory Board of highly renowned scholars.
