Open Peer Review: Nineteenth-Century Anti-Semitism in International Perspective
From October 21 till 23, 2015, the first conference of the Max Weber Foundation involving all its institutes was held at the German Historical Institute in Paris and had the title “Antisemitism in the 19th century from an international perspective”. It was organized by the German Historical Institutes and in cooperation with the “Zentrum für Antisemitismusforschung” (Centre for Research on Antisemitism) at the “Technische Universität Berlin” (Berlin Institute of Technology). A selection of the papers presented during the conference will be made available step by step to the interested academic public on the blog which accompanies the conference. It will be possible to discuss the papers within the scope of an open peer review process until the end of January 2017 using the comment section of the blog. All contributions to the discussion will be moderated. When the open peer review process is completed the authors will have the opportunity to modify their articles on the basis of the comments on their articles. The modified and final versions will then be published simultaneously on the website www.perspectivia.net as open access content and by the Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht publishing company as a printed book.
