  • Abstract

    Following the self-definition of the HSR journal, the historical social research is, in the broadest sense, defined by formal methods used in the field of history. Doubtless the development of the wide field of historical social research has been decisively marked by by a number of founding and support associations which constituted themselves mainly in the 1970s, e.g. the “Social Science History Association” (SSHA), the “Working Group for the Quantification and Methods of Historical and Social Studies” (“Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Quantifizierung und Methoden in der historisch-sozialwissenschaftlichen Forschung”) – QUANTUM -, the “Association for Computers and Humanities”, the “Cliometric Society”, or the “Association for History and Computing”. Immediately after their foundation, both SSHA and Quantum published their own scientific journal, the “Social Science History” (SSHA) and the “Historical Social Research/Historische Social research (HSF)” (QUANTUM). In these two journals, far more than 1,000 articles on historical research and social science history have been published up to now. Consequently, the articles in these publications constitute the systematic basis for this selected bibliography. The bibliography begins in the year 1975 – the founding phase of both associations – and ends with the new millenium 1999/2000. Its focus lies on the systematic analysis and selection of literature taken from the corresponding scientific journals. Among these, the greatest number of references in the selected bibliography fall upon: - Historical Social Research - Social Science History - Explorations in Economic History - Journal of Interdisciplinary History - Historical Methods - History and Computing - Computer and the Humanities. In this selected bibliography, the following items are documented: 4,428 literary works, written or published by 3,706 authors in all. Among others, the criteria of selection for the systematic entry into the bibliography were the following: - publication in the Historical Social Research, or in journals of similar rank and character; - publication in topic-related collections initiated and/or edited by journals and/or support associations; - publication according to the “bilingual model” of the HSR journal in English or German. (Th. Rahlf, C. Baddack, K. Pierau [2004]: Historical Social Research: Selected Bibliography [1975-2000], S. 1-9) Topics: Research results from different topics of the quantitative historical science.
