Scholarly Societies Project

Chronological List of Early Independent Journals

This area is concerned with "independent journals" - that is, with journals that were not published by scholarly societies. In point of fact, in the early years of their existence, the independent journals served primarily as a vehicle for reviewing works of original reseach that were located in monographs or in the journals published by scholarly societies.

The bulk of the abbreviations of these independent journals were located through perusal of the first few hundred pages of Band 1 of Pogg..

1.1837 - 8.1849[?]
Repertorium der Experimental-Physik

According to Bolton, p.480, #3920b, Repertorium der Physik : eine Zusammenstellung der neueren Fortschritte der Wissenschaft [1.1837 - 8.1849[?]] was edited by H.W. Dove and L. Moser, and continued Neues Repertorium der Experimental-Physik [1836], which in turn continued Repertorium der Experimental-Physik [1832].

Bolton is the only source of information that we have found for the two initial titles (for 1832 and 1836)

RSLC, v.1, p.lxv gives the following entry for the 1837-1849 title: Repert. der Phys.......... Repertorium der Physik. Enthaltend eine vollständige Zusammestellung der neuern Fortschritte dieser Wissenschaft. Von Heinrich Wilhelm Dove und Ludwig Moser. 8vo. Berlin. Vols. I - VIII. 1837-49.

The Zeitschriftendatenbank(ZDB) gives the following information: Repertorium der Physik : eine Zusammenstellung der neueren Fortschritte der Wissenschaft. [1.1837 - 8.1849[?]] It makes no mention of the editors or the 1832 and 1836 title.
