The first review publication in the field of German linguistic studies, Zeitschrift für Rezensionen zur germanistischen Sprachwissenschaft (ZRS) [Journal for Reviews in German Linguistics] aims to monitor the ever-growing number of new linguistic studies and make them accessible to its readers. Before the journal was founded in 2009, scholars interested in new linguistic publications found relevant information only in the rather limited review sections of other specialist journals. ZRS focuses primarily on German linguistic studies, yet it also discusses general linguistic topics inasmuch as they are connected with German Studies and may be of interest to scholars working in the field of German linguistics.

In early 2014, ZRS, now well-established, was turned into an open access journal. In cooperation with the University of Zurich, De Gruyter offers free access to the online version for an initial two years. All reviews published so far in 2014 are accessible at, and more will follow soon. As a bonus, the second issue of volume 2013 forms part of the open access offer as well.

A printed version will continue to be available and will be published in a double volume at the end of each year.
