Low Countries Journal of Social and Economic History


Aims & Scope

The Dutch and English-language journal Low Countries Journal of Social and Economic History is the most important journal on social and economic history of the Netherlands and Belgium. It is a peer-reviewed journal that was granted A-status (INT 1) by the European Science Foundation.

The journal focuses on social and economic history in the broad sense, with a strong interest in the manner in which people in the past related to each other and how they gave shape to social, economic, cultural and political patterns. Key notions here are economic growth, power & (in)equality, group cultures, networks, identity, gender, ethnicity, ecology, trade & technique, entrepreneurship, labour & social movements. The editorial board regards insights and theories from the social sciences as a source of inspiration.

The journal was founded in 2004 as a merger and continuation of three Dutch journals of economic and social history: NEHA-Jaarboek voor economische, bedrijfs- en techniekgeschiedenis (1914), the Tijdschrift voor Sociale Geschiedenis (1975) and the NEHA-Bulletin (1986). TSEG is published under the auspices of the International Institute of Social History (IISH) and the Netherlands Economic-Historical Archive (NEHA).
