Isis

Isis was the first interdisciplinary journal in the German-speaking area. The magazine, which was initially printed in Jena under the editorship of Lorenz Oken, was produced in the Hofbuchdruckerei of the Principality of Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt in the nearby Rudolstadt since the summer of 1819 after it was banned in the Duchy of Saxony-Weimar-Eisenach. The original print run of 1,500 copies of the magazine fell quickly in the first few years of its existence and was still around 200 copies in the last few years.
