Journal History

Sjuttonhundratal started in 2004 as the yearbook of the Swedish Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies. Vol. 1(2004)-5(2008) were published under that name. With Vol. 6(2009), the Finnish Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies joined as owners and publishers, and the title was changed to the current Sjuttonhundratal: Nordic Yearbook for Eighteenth-Century Studies. A further expansion followed with Vol. 7(2010), when the Norwegian Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies joined as owners and publishers. Since Vol. 10(2013), even the Danish and Icelandic Societies for Eighteenth-Century Studies are part of the yearbook's owners and publishers.

Septentrio Academy Publishing, an open access service provided by the University Library of UiT The Arctic University of Norway, is responsible for the electronic version of Sjuttonhundratal. Vol. 7(2010) was the first volume of the Yearbook to appear online, in January 2013. By March 2014, the entire back catalogue from Vol. 1(2004) to Vol. 8(2011) had been made available online. Early in the year 2015, Vol. 9(2012) and 10(2013) appeared online as well.
