The Zeitschrift für Ethnologie (Journal of Ethnology) has been considered the primary journal of German ethnology for over 100 years. It was founded in 1869 by German scholars Adolf Bastian and Robert Hartmann. The Zeitschrift für Ethnologie publishes articles of a theoretical-methodological nature, with emphasis on empirical knowledge. Authors with new material on the subject of regional ethnology present their methodology, their theoretical perspective and the further development of the theoretical-methodological discussion through their results. The Zeitschrift für Ethnologie also offers a view of German ethnology abroad and provides an international forum for ethnological discussion through the inclusion of the articles by prominent foreign colleagues. The journal is published under the auspices of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Völkerkunde (the German Society for Ethnology) an the Berliner Gesellschaft für Anthropologie, Ethnologie und Urgeschichte (the Berlin Society for Anthropology, Ethnology and Prehistory).
