Dear Reader,

TABVLA RASA, Jena’s magazine for critical thinking has been published for more than 15 years. Contributors are young scholars from a wide range of faculties of the Friedrich-Schiller-University, Jena, Germany who have their routes at the philosophical department, the alma mater Jenensis. The third generation of editors ensures the magazine fulfils the aims that were agreed when it was founded.


We publish texts if they are good. We welcome texts from the humanities, social and applied sciences. We want to encourage writers and scholars from other universities to make their way into the public domain through us. We are proud to have established professors amongst our writers and think this vouches for excellent conditions for presenting yourself to the scientific community.

Being an online magazine provides our contributors with the following privileges:

We hope to welcome those who share our ideas and goals as writers for our cross faculty magazine.

We are looking forward to your contribution.
