Since 1998, the Neue Folge (New Series) of the NORDEUROPAforum has been published. It bears the sub-description of "periodical for politics, economics and culture". The publishers and editors are mandated, following the existing and previous objectives, to assist in the socio-cultural observation of North Europe (inclusive historically) undertaken in Germany. We publish analyses in both German and English concerning the politics, economics, and culture, of those countries in Europe that fall within the spectrum of "North": from Greenland, through to the "old" North European countries (Iceland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland) to Northwestern Russia, to the Baltic States and the southern edge of the Baltic Sea (Poland and Germany).

Besides the scientific analysis, the magazine contributes to the German/European-Scandinavian dialogue and sees itself as a forum for the exchange of opinion in the Baltic-Sea Region. The publication contains contributions towards politics, economics and culture, but also to cultural and sociological methodology and theoretical discussion. Simultaneously, the periodical's profile is one that is defined to a great extent by reviews and critiques in which new developments are discussed.

Thematic limits do not exist. We see ourselves as a cultural studies periodical in the broadest sense: the subject is not important, rather the scientific quality and the reference to the region are far more important. Contributions and suggestions for themes are always welcome!

Since the edition 1/2006, the NORDEUROPAforum has been exclusively published in the Internet via the Open Access using the edoc-Document and Publications Server of the Humboldt-Universitšt zu Berlin. Previously, editions were produced by the Berliner Wissenschaftsverlag (formerly BERLIN VERLAG Arno Spitz), where previous copies can still be obtained.

The Alte Folge (Old Series) had copy between 1991 to 1997 in the Nomos-Verlagsgesellschaft, as a quarterly magazine concerning the politics, economics and culture of the countries of Northern Europe, and targeted a wide public.
