First published in 1986, Germany Studies (Deutschland-Studien), originally entitled Federal Germany Studies, is a peer-reviewed academic journal produced by the Institute of German Studies at Tongji University.
The journal is devoted to German Studies and other related EU studies. As a leading journal in international studies, it has been widely acclaimed by government decision-makers, scholars and business leaders.
