Journal of Applied Social Science Studies / Zeitschrift ür Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaften. The title "Journal of Applied Social Science Studies" is a new one, but the journal itself is an old one. It was founded about 120 years ago under the title "Jahrbuch ür Gesetzgebung, Verwaltung und Rechtspflege des Deutschen Reiches" (Journal for Legislation, Public Administration and Judicature in Germany). It became famous under the title "Schmollers Jahrbuch ür Gesetzgebung, Verwaltung und Volkswirtschaft" (Schmollers Journal of Legislation, Public Administration and Economics). Gustav von Schmoller was an influential economist at the beginning of the century. Schmollers Jahrbuch was published from 1913 to 1967. From 1968 to 1999 the German Economic Association ("Verein ür Socialpolitik") edited the journal under the title "Zeitschrift ür Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaften" (Journal of Economics and Social Sciences). In 2000 the German Economic Association will launch a new journal: German Economic Review, which will be a forum for economic analysis in a more pure sense. The start of GER is a chance to revitalize the idea of "Schmollers Jahrbuch", which was a forum for applied social sciences. "Applied" means research applying social science methods to problems of the "real world". All kinds of methods are welcome, either theoretical, empirical, or historical ones as long as the research question is an "applied" one. Schmollers Jahrbuch is a German based journal indeed. However, it is interested in all kinds of "real problems" all over the world; a focus on European topics is very welcome. The journal has access to an international pool of referees and guarantees a high standard of published contributions.
