Damals, stylized as DAMALS, is a German monthly popular scientific history magazine. The magazine is issued since 1969 and aims primarily at students, teachers, university students, scientists and a readership interested in historical science. The German word damals means "back then".

The editors, being established historians, archaeologists, cultural scientists and philologists, write scientifically based articles. Each month another focus theme is portrayed. This concept distinguishes Damals from other German publications of the kind, for example G/Geschichte. The magazine features also brief book reviews, a historically oriented television and radio programme, research news and articles on topics with a wide range of historical eras and themes. Moreover, it covers current exhibitions which are often featured in whole articles or even as theme of the month.[1]

The magazine whose scientific advisory body includes historians Christian Meier and Jürgen Osterhammel, is published by Konradin Medien GmbH of Leinfelden-Echterdingen. Katja Kohlhammer, the publishing group's executive director, is the publisher.

Abstracts of current issues, yearly tables of content and an articles archive can be viewed online. In the third quarter of 2015, Damals had a circulation of 23,104.[2]
