Journal History

1700-tal started in 2004 as the yearbook of the Swedish Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies. Vol. 1(2004)-5(2008) were published under the name Sjuttonhundratal. With Vol. 6(2009), the Finnish Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies joined as owners and publishers, and the title was changed to 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. Furthermore, an international advisory board consisting of more than a dozen highly merited scholars has been established.

In 2019, the name was changed into 1700-tal: Nordic Journal for Eighteenth-Century Studies and full, immediate open access is now offered on the journal's website. 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 1700-tal. Vol. 7(2010) was the first volume of the journal to appear online, in January 2013. The entire back catalogue is by now available online at Septentrio Academic Publishing. Distribution of the printed version continues in close collaboration with the national societies for eighteenth-century studies.
