Hungarian Studies Review is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary academic journal dedicated to publishing humanities and social scientific scholarship on contemporary and historical issues related to Hungary and the surrounding region, and to the Hungarian diaspora. Established in 1974 by the founding editor, Nándor F. Dreisziger, under the title The Canadian-American Review of Hungarian Studies, and published since 1981 under its current title, Hungarian Studies Review is sponsored by the Hungarian Studies Association and the Hungarian Studies Association of Canada. It has also been supported in the past by the National Széchényi Library in Hungary.

Hungarian Studies Review focuses on social, political, cultural, and historical topics related to Hungary, Austria-Hungary, and the region formerly encompassed by the Habsburg Empire, as well as the global Hungarian diaspora. Our chronological focus is primarily (though not exclusively) the eighteenth century to the present, and we welcome studies that are transnational or comparative in their approach. Disciplinary areas covered include, but are not limited to: history, political science, sociology and anthropology, arts and culture, gender and sexuality studies, minority and nationalism studies, environmental studies, and historical geography.

Beginning in 2021, Hungarian Studies Review will be published twice yearly with Penn State University Press, with issues in July and December (
