The Deutsches Archiv für Erforschung des Mittelalters is published by the Monumenta Germaniae Historica, which aims to serve the scholarly study of the medieval history of Germany and Europe through critical editions and studies of sources. Each volume of the journal consists of two issues, each of which is divided into an essay and a review section. The essay section contains descriptive and source-critical studies on the history of the Middle Ages including its ancillary sciences. The detailed review section, which also includes articles published independently in anthologies and journals, reports on the results of international research on the Middle Ages.
The DA has been published since 1937 (Vol. 1 [Vol. 1-7 still under the name "Deutsches Archiv für Geschichte des Mittelalters"]) and continues the predecessor journals "Archiv der Gesellschaft für Ältere Deutsche Geschichtskunde" (Vol. 1-12 [1820-1874]) and "Neues Archiv der Gesellschaft für Ältere Deutsche Geschichtskunde" (Vol. 1-50 [1876-1935]).
