The Yearbook of Austrian Byzantine Studies ( JÖB ) is one of the leading international journals in the field of Byzantine Studies . The JÖB was founded in 1951 as the yearbook of the Austrian Byzantine Society ( JÖBG ) and renamed with Volume 18 (1969). The issuing bodies are the Institute for Byzantine and Neo-Greek Studies at the University of Vienna and the Byzantine Research Department of the Institute for Medieval Studies at the Austrian Academy of Sciences , whose publisher also publishes the yearbook. The current editors are - in the successor of Herbert Hunger , Wolfram Hörandner and Ewald Kislinger - Christian host , Johannes Preiser-Kapeller , Claudia Rapp and Elisabeth Schiffer. From 2008 onwards, an anonymous peer review process will be used for all articles offered for publication. The editor and editorial team are supported by a scientific advisory board.

Thematically, all areas are covered, from philology, history and theology to material culture, archeology and art history. Articles can be supplemented with illustrations and plan drawings. In terms of time, the entire period from late antiquity to the fall of the Byzantine Empire and the reception of Byzantine culture is dealt with. In addition to articles, reviews and annotations as well as the current publication status for the Corpus Fontium Historiae Byzantinae are published in the JÖB volumes .
