The journal Grotiana, New Series was launched in 1980. It is the continuation of the Grotiana yearbook of which ten volumes appeared between 1917 and 1947. The journal is devoted to all kinds of academic studies on the life and works, as well as legacies of Grotius. It also contains a bibliography of Grotius editions and relevant secondary literature. Over the last two decades, there have been thematic issues, often collecting papers from international conferences organised under the auspices of the Grotiana Foundation.
The journal is published by the Dutch publishing house Brill. Its current editors-in-chief are Hans Blom and Mark Somos.
