Image Comparativ. A Journal on global history and comparative analysis of societies is a paper-based scientific journal, which is published since 1991 six times a year; each issue contains 4-6 thematically related articles, a forum section, and book reviews. It is edited on behalf of ENIUGH by Matthias Middell and Hannes Siegrist. It publishes articles and reviews in English, German and French. With its clear focus on thematic issues Comparativ offers an opportunity to publish results from panels or smaller workshops but allows also to bring achievements from collective research projects to the attention of the academic audience. The main criterion in the selection of topics for such thematic issues is its global orientation. Comparativ publishes regularly overviews on current trends in world history writing.
