Administory is an annual Open Access journal for administrative history that is published jointly by the Institute of Austrian Historical Research (IÖG) and the Swiss Federal Archives (SFA) in cooperation with the mpilhlt. It represents an interface between historical research and the debates on state and administration in the social, legal and political sciences. The focus is on the history of early modern times and modernity. Each annual volume has a thematic focus, which above all opens up the possibility of international comparative reflections as well as a dialogue across various disciplines and spanning different eras. In the adjoining section »Relektüre«, classics of administrative history and administrative science are re-read in light of their current relevance.
Each contribution is subject to a peer review procedure. Contributions are published in either German or English. The journal is published by De Gruyter.
